Splash! final: Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards favourite to win


Eddie The Eagle is the overwhelming favourite to win ITV's Splash this weekend according to Ladbrokes.

The former skier has impressed the judges since day one and Eddie now finds himself chalked up as the long odds-on 1/6 favourite to be crowned the winner of Splash. However his new found diving prowess took the firm by surprise as he was initially quoted at 50/1 to win the show.

Linda currently has the edge in the betting at 7/1 over Jake who's the 9/1 outsider for glory.

Remaining on ITV but a day later it looks like Gareth could be on thin ice in the competition as his foot infection has seen his odds of elimination slashed to 8/1 from 14/1 on Wednesday. Cheggers remains the favourite to be the next celeb out at 11/8, or a it's a 5/2 chance that Jason's wishes are granted and Luke's KO'd from the ice rink.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Only two punters had the foresight to back Eddie when he was a 50/1 outsider, but it would take a huge shock for them to not receive their bumper payout now."

She added: "Gareth's on a slippery slope towards elimination favouritism thanks to his foot injury."
