Dancing On Ice’s Cheryl Baker has topped the first tumble betting ahead of Sunday’s launch show.
Dancing On Ice 2018 launches this Sunday on ITV, and Cheryl Baker has topped the ‘first tumble’ list alongside weatherman Alex Beresford.
Cheryl Baker is the early 9/2 joint favourite to be the first Dancing On Ice contestant to fall over.
Cheryl heads the betting alongside weatherman Alex Beresford in the bookmaker’s first faller market.
The odds also suggest Bake Off queen Candice Brown hasn’t taken to the ice too well and is priced at 5/1 to take a tumble, the same price as Coronation Street star Antony Cotton.
Slickest of the skiers could be Jake Quickenden according to Betway. The X Factor and I’m A Celeb contestant is the clear 11/4 favourite to make his hat-trick of reality TV appearances a triumphant one.
Quickenden sits above Corrie girl Brooke Vincent, 4/1, and 34-year-old ex-rugby union international Max Evans, 6/1, in the outright betting.
Betway’s Alan Alger, said: “Worryingly for Cheryl Baker, the only Dancing On Ice title she’s being backed for is to be the show’s first faller. At odds of 9/2 to go over before her fellow skaters and as big as 25/1 to win the show outright, she looks up against it.
“With under a week to go, Jake Quickenden has been the best-backed in the build-up to the 10th series. He’s already showed plenty of ambition by stating that he wants to card a perfect score by the end of the show and he’s the clear 11/4 favourite to be crowned king of the rink.”
Legendary skating duo Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean will be reunited with original hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the show that sees celebrity skaters take to the ice in a bid to dance and dazzle their way to glory.
Torvill and Dean will both sit on a revamped ice panel alongside the formidable Jason Gardiner and choreographer extraordinare Ashley Banjo.
ITV Racing’s Matt Chapman will commentate.
Dancing On Ice launches on Sunday, January 7 on ITV at 6PM.
