Jake Quickenden Bunny Hops Max Evans As new Dancing On Ice Favourite
Lemar Replaces Monty Panesar as 10/1 Shot To Win
Dancing On Ice has yet to even return to our screens and there has already been a withdrawal from an injured celebrity. Former England cricketer, Monty Panesar had to pull out of the competition after breaking his ankle during rehearsals.
Fame Academy star Lemar has been chosen as his replacement and has already outshone Monty, going into the betting at 10/1 whereas Monty was a 12/1 shot before his withdrawal.
Jake Quickenden is seeing early support to win Dancing On Ice, which airs in January. The former X Factor and I’m A Celeb star is the new favourite to win after punters lumped on his 6/1 odds on Wednesday, forcing traders to make him the new frontrunner.
Next in the betting is Scottish rugby player Max Evans at 5/1 with Coronation Street’s Brooke Vincent, aka Sophie Webster, on offer at 11/2 and track athlete Perri Shakes-Drayton following at 11/2.
Also taking to the ice in the new year are Love Island winner Kem Cetinay (8/1), Hollyoaks’ Stephanie Waring (10/1), socialite Donna Air (10/1), weatherman Alex Beresford (12/1), Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown (14/1), Corrie star Antony Cotton (14/1) and Bucks Fizz star Cheryl Baker (25/1).
Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented “Lemar has replaced the injured Monty Panesar and went straight into the betting with better odds of winning Dancing On Ice! Reports suggest Lemar had been training as a backup in case of injury and could be one to watch.”
She added “Already we have a new favourite to win Dancing On Ice after punters snapped up his 6/1 odds, seeing him overtake previous early favourite Max Evans (5/1) as the 4/1 one to beat.”
