Wes wows judges to become odds-on Dancing On Ice favourite

Wes Nelson is once again the odds-on favourite to win Dancing On Ice after he stole the show with a near-perfect performance in Sunday night’s broadcast.


The former Love Island star went into last weekend as the Even-money favourite, having replaced James Jordan at the head of the betting a few weeks ago, and he cemented himself as the bookies pick by wowing all four judges with his latest performance.

James Gardiner hailed the performance as “sublime” while ‘thanking’ Wes for the display, and all four judges dished out 9.5s to provide the series with its highest score of the year so far and send Wes storming to the top of the leaderboard on a night where TWO celebrities were given the boot in a dramatic twist on the usual format that sees two ‘skate-off’ and the loser head home.

Ladbrokes has responded to the score and the praise by trimming Wes’ outright odds to 4/6, while his only real rival, James Jordan, has drifted slightly from 6/4 to 7/4.

The former Strictly Come Dancing professional dancer has been a front-runner since the line-up was announced and did get high marks from the judges at the weekend, scoring 36, but he failed to perform a required move in his routine and that prevented his score from being higher.

It was a costly mistake by James, but with his odds changing only slightly the bookmakers clearly believe it will not have a massively damaging effect on his chances of winning the show, and they continue to believe that he will be the man to challenge Wes in what looks set to be a two-horse race for the trophy.

Third favourite Melody Thornton has slipped from 10/1 to 14s after she was forced to take part in a three-celebrity skate-off this past weekend, and although she survived many fans took to social media claiming the Pussycat Doll should have been given the boot instead of Jane Danson.

Saara Aalto and Brian McFadden were not forced to skate again for their survival on Sunday, but at 20/1 and 25/1 respectively the bookmakers believe that one of this pair is likely to be skating for the final time this weekend.

Latest Ladbrokes Odds


Dancing On Ice Winner: 4/6 Wes Nelson, 7/4 James Jordan, 14/1 Melody Thornton, 20/1 Saara Aalto, 25/1 Brian McFadden.
