Does any other TV event signify Winter more than the annual return of Dancing on Ice? We think not and it is nearly upon us once again.
Dancing on Ice returns to our screens on January 17th with the contestants revealed back in November last year – but how do the bookies stack them up against each other?
Former Corrie star Faye Brooks is touted as this year’s female favourite and it is by quite a margin compared to other female contestants too! Do the bookies know something the average man doesn’t?
No stranger to our screens, the stage, the theatre or sell-out concerts throughout his career Mr. Donovan is currently favourite and has been quoted saying “always been a big fan of winter sports”. Jason is favourite but closely followed by Faye Brooks.
The ex-Hear say singer cum TV presenter and all-round celebrity is clearly comfortable in front of an audience performing but how do the bookmakers think she will fair on the ice?
Rebekah’s infamy rocketed as Coleen Rooney’s played detective back in 2019 and she has become a celebrity in her own right. The bookmakers don’t fancy her chances though.
And actor and comedian in the bookmakers opinion is currently least likely to be crowned King of the ice he has joked about “doing it for the money” but we have no idea how his ice skating prowess will reveal itself.
Here is a run down of all contestants and their current odds for becoming crowned overall winner of Dancing on ice 2021:
Faye Brooks – 4/1
Colin Jackson – 5/1
Jason Donovan – 3/1
Billie Shepherd – 5/1
ColinJackson – 5/1
Joe Warren Plant – 7/1
Denise Van Outen – 8/1

“There is a real collection of strong talented contestants this year for Dancing on Ice, even the least favourite currently, Rufus Hound, can not be ruled out!
We see that there are 5 contestants at 5/1 or under and that is almost half the contestants, this indicates although Jason Donovan is currently favourite the competition is wide open this year.
Betting aside we have TV personalities, Wags, British rappers, comedians and more for 2021 so we know it will be a very entertaining Dancing on Ice for 2021.”
