Dancing on Ice 2018: Who will win this weekend’s final?
The Dancing on Ice 2018 final is finally here.
This Saturday, March 11 at 6pm, three celebrity finalists will compete to win the rebooted version of the competition.
Twelve celebrities started the competition, although only X Factor star Jake Quickenden, Coronation Street actor Brooke Vincent and Rugby Union player Max Evans remain.
Who will win Dancing on Ice?
1. Jake Quickenden
Jake is currently the favourite to win the competition, with betting odds of 1/6.
However, he has a history of not quite making the final cut in reality competitions, after failing to win The X Factor and coming runner up in I’m A Celebrity: Get Me Out Of Here!
Before joining Dancing on Ice, Jake told ITV’s Lorraine he was most afraid of injuring his skating partner.
He said: “The last thing I want to do do is kick someone in the face with my skates on – or even drop someone! I am quite big so I know I will be asked to do lifts and that’s making me nervous.”
We think he’s defied all expectations!
2. Brooke Vincent
Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent is second-favourite to win, sitting at odds of 7/1.
Vincent grew up on-screen as Sophie Webster, the daughter of Sally and Kevin. Her storylines while on the show consisted of her rivalry with sister Rosie, her conversion to Christianity and her coming out as a lesbian.
Vincent was the first star to be confirmed for the series and told This Morning hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby that she loved a challenge.
“Ice skating – what an amazing skill. Next year I can go with the girls and be like, ‘I can do this, I can do that’ and they’ll be holding onto the sides.
“I’ve been trying to lose a few pounds to get in them leotards. If I get injured at least I’ll look sparkly on the way to the hospital!”
3. Max Evans
The third contender for the trophy is rugby star Max Evans, an outsider with odds of 20-1.
During his rugby career, Evans played centre and wing and won 44 caps for Scotland. He is also the cousin of BBC Radio host Chris Evans.
He first revealed his big news on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show, admitting: I haven’t done any skating since I was a kid, and this is completely different having to skate on live television.
“I’ve had two training sessions which have hurt my feet a lot. We’ve all had a dance, which is familiar territory, but skating is so not…”
