Dancing On Ice winner ‘already decided’ as James Jordan makes epic return

Dancing On Ice returns to our screens tonight with seven celebrities set to take to the ice once again.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will be back on hosting duty and will watch the famous faces dance to impress the ice panel as well as the viewers at home.

There may be a few weeks to go until the grand finale but it seems that there is only one clear winner.

Bookmakers Coral have Diversity star Perri Kiely priced as favourite to lift the Dancing On Ice 2020 trophy at 1-3 with telly favourite Joe Swash being his only challenger at 4-1.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Perri and Joe look set to go toe-to-toe this series and as things stand it'll take nothing short of a miracle for anyone else to go all the way and win."

Elsewhere, every other contestant in the betting is now priced at 10-1 or lower, with magician Ben Hanlin being the 50-1 rank outsider.

Bookies favourite Perri, who is partnered with pro skater Vanessa Bauer, is giving the jive a go this week and Dancing On Ice 2019 winner and former Strictly Come Dancing professional James Jordan was on hand to give him tips during rehearsals.

Professional dancer James said: "It’s really difficult for Perri and I feel for him a little bit. I kind of went through it last year myself.

"Being a professional dancer, everyone expects you to be so good, and he has that expectation as well, probably on himself, but I can see how hard he’s working.

"It’s tricky because the jive is a high-energy dance but to transfer it from the floor onto the ice? It’s really difficult."

Perri was as grateful with James’ advice, admitting: "I’ve never done Jive before. Having James come down today was perfect."

James told Perri: "Your skating is next level."

He later joked: "I'm so happy you didn't do it last year."

Love Island babe Maura Higgins, Steps star Ian "H" Watkins, Corrie actress Lisa George and Paralympian Libby Clegg will also take to the ice tonight alongside Perri, Joe and Ben and their professional partners.

Fans will have to tune in tonight to find out which celebrity will be sent packing.

Dancing On Ice airs on ITV tonight at 6pm
