Louis Smith remains the firm favourite to win The Jump 2017 after two weeks of competition.

The Olympian is still the one to beat and has in fact shortened further as the favourite, now 5/4 from 9/4, after his main competition Bradley has been withdrawn from the show.

Spencer Matthews has shortened into 5/1, alongside Jason Robinson from 7/1 ahead of this week’s attempt on the slopes. This sees the pair firmly in Louis’ shadow as joint second favourites.

Gareth Thomas is next at 7/1 with Jade Jones leading the charge for the ladies at 10/1 and Robbie Fowler an 18/1 shot.

The rest of the line-up appear to be longshots with Caprice Bourret and Lydia Bright both priced at 50/1 and Emma Park-Bowles and Kadeena Cox both the large odds of 66/1.

Meanwhile, Rumours have been rife that Jake Quickenden could replace Bradley Wiggins on The Jump after Olympic cyclist Sir Bradley Wiggins was ruled out due to injury.

X Factor and I’m A Celeb star Jake has yet to be confirmed to appear on the show, but BoyleSports are offering odds of 9/1 on the reality TV hunk in the Outright betting.

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “Bradley Wiggins unfortunately had to bow out of The Jump following an injured leg, but it looks like his departure has paved the way for Jake Quickenden to don the skis. Nothing is official yet but Jake already has his supporters at 9/1.”

She added “Louis Smith is however the red hot favourite to win at 5/4 having already come out on top in week one. The Olympic gymnast is expected to go from strength to strength, much like his odds after he shortened in from 9/4, which will make him a tough one to beat.”
