Dancing on Ice is back for 2022 and as fans eagerly await its return to screens, there are already celebrities from the lineup ranked as the favourites to win the series as we look at who will win Dancing On Ice 2022?
Twelve celebrities are currently in training ahead of taking to the TV studio ice rink for the 14th series of the hit ITV show with regular hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Scofield making a return to our screens.
The stars have long since been confirmed, with celebrities now fine-tuning their skating skills behind closed doors, attempting to master spins, jumps, and those nailbiting headbangers.
Who will win Dancing on Ice 2022?
Strictly star Brendan Cole, dancer Regan Gascoigne, and Love Island sweetheart Liberty Poole have been installed as joint 7-2 favourites to win Dancing On Ice 2022 by bookmaker William Hill.
The New Zealand-born ballroom dancer, 45, has been partnered with Vanessa Bauer, Regan has been matched with American figure skater Karina Manta, and star of last summer’s Love Island, Liberty will partner up with Joe Johnson.
In fact, 7-2 Brendan is already sidelined after suffering a head injury in training, while Regan’s involvement – he is a 25-year-old dancer and the youngest of Dad Paul’s three children – perhaps show how seriously the choreography element of the show will be taken by a panel comprised of Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill, Oti Mabuse and Ashley Banjo.
After William Hill’s favourite trio of Brendan, Regan and Liberty there is then a considerable gap before former England rugby star Ben Foden at 7-1. Foden, who will swap his boots for blades, and becomes the latest in a long line of rugby players to take to the ice.
Great Britain’s first-ever BMX Olympic medallist, Kye Whyte is a 15-2 chance of winning the show outright, as is Kimberly Wyatt, who will follow two fellow Pussycat Dolls onto the ice.
Former S Club 7 star and mum of two Rachel Stevens is an 8-1 shot, The Vamps’ bassist Connor Ball is 12-1, Paralympic medallist Stef Reid is 16-1, Ria Hebden of ITV’s Lorraine fame and Happy Mondays star Bez are both 25-1, before Coronation Street actress Sally Dynevor completes the set at 33-1.
