Dancing on Ice has confirmed it will be the first hit celebrity show to air a new season in 2019, gracing UK screens from January 6th.

The show has also revealed the line-up for the 2019 season, which includes Love Island star Wes Nelson, Brian McFadden of Westlife fame, Coronation Street’s Leanne (Jane Danson), Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton, rapper Richard Blackwood and TOWIE star Gemma Collins, to name a few.

On hearing of his inclusion, Wes Nelson, who recently wowed Love Island fans with his dance moves, said: “Gemma Collins is going to wipe the floor with me, I’m super intimidated.”

Another famous face in the line-up that many may not have seen on screen for a while is Didi Conn, who played Pink Lady “Frenchie” in the hit 70’s musical Grease. When the announcement was made on the ITV talk show Lorraine, she excitedly exclaimed: “Boy oh boy, I’m going from being a Pink Lady to Queen of the Ice.”

So who do the bookies think has the best chance of impressing the judges this year?

There appears to be a clear consensus across the board that Wes Nelson will come out on top, which is not surprising considering the spectacular moves he pulled off during Love Island. All the major bookies, including Bet365, Skybet, Ladbrokes, William Hill, and Betfair have him as a favorite to win at 3/1.

James Jordan is in at second with the majority of bookies giving him a 9/2 chance of taking the crown.

Third place goes to Melody Thronton who gets 6/1 odds, with Richard Blackwood coming up closely behind with a mix of 6/1 and 13/2 odds from various bookies.

Gemma Collins has been given the least chance of winning, with only 40/1 odds from some bookies and 33/1 from others. Just above her is former Pink Lady Didi Conn with an average 28/1 odds.

It’s still early days though, with the line-up having only just recently been announced and not a single skate hitting the ice as yet. If previous years are anything to go by, a series of mix-ups and surprises will no doubt change the odds drastically in the coming months.
