Dancing On Ice: This Means Thaw
DANCING ON ICE: Sunday 28th March, ITV, 6.45pm ALERT ME
The Dancing On Ice final is upon us! This Sunday Hayley Tamaddon, Keiron Richardson and Gary Lucy will pull on their skates for the last time in a bid to be crowned King or Queen of the rink.
The three finalists will each perform their favourite routines from the series before carrying out a special skate-off using high flying wires. The two with the most votes will go head to head doing a Bolero performance.
But who’s going to take the title? Tamaddon is the bookies’ favourite but could her hopes be dashed by the dashing Lucy or thrown by heart-throb Richardson? Read our round-up for the facts and stats on each finalist…
Best known as: Emmerdale’s Delilah Dingle
Title chance: The outright favourite – in week nine she made show history with a maximum score of 30 out of 30. According to potty-mouthed judge Jason Gardiner she’s already got the trophy in the bag. He told The Sun: “With those pillocks [Lucy and Richardson], do we need to even rock up on Sunday? Can we just give Hayley the crown and go home?”
Average score: She’s topped the table every week except in week ten with an average score of 24.45.
Odds to win: 1/8
Best known as: Hollyoaks bad boy Ste Hay
Title chance: He’s been the hardest worker of the pack and is regarded as the most improved participant. Since week six he has become a main player but has he got what it takes to go all the way?
Keiron has been in the skate-off twice, beating Heather Mills and Danny Young to stay in the competition.
Average score: He’s never finished in the top two with the worst average score of the finalists at 18.9.
Odds to win: 8/1
Best known as: TDC Will Fletcher in The Bill
Title chance: Until last week he hadn’t been in the skate-off since week two where he saw off Bobby Davro. After out-skating Daniella Westbrook last week judge Jason Gardiner branded him a ‘total bore’. His heart-throb persona has saved him a few times, but has he got the skating skills to beat Tamaddon?
Average score: He has a better average score than Keiron with 20.5 and has only been beaten by the Hollyoaks star twice.
Odds to win: 8/1
There’s been a lot of sweat and tears over the eleven weeks and Hayley Tamaddon even shed blood following a fall but spare a thought for these professionals injured in action…
Who knew such a graceful sport could be so gruesome?
