Rosemary Conley the value bet for Dancing On Ice elimination
Likeability and not actual ability is the main criteria for uncovering the earliest elimination in virtually every reality show and things will prove no different on Dancing On Ice.
Andy Akinwolere was by a distance not the worst dancer on the ice in the opening qualification round, but obviously failed to click with the voting public in the same way as the other celebrities taking part.
The second and final qualification round is now almost upon as and yet again it is unlikely to be the celebrity which finishes bottom in terms of scores from the judging panel that will exit.
There is a strong possibility that Laila Morse will prop up the leaderboard of the eight celebrities, but she is likely to approach the show in the right spirit, be game for a laugh and have all Eastenders watchers cheering her on.
These facts will arguably be enough to ensure that she is still surviving in the competition until week five or six.
Laila is 4/1 to be the next Dancing On Ice contestant eliminated, with three of the other acts fancied ahead of her to fail to make it beyond the qualification round.
Corey Feldman is the 2/1 favourite in this market and he has already rubbed dance partner Brooke Castile up the wrong way by attempting to choreograph their routines and by stating that her muscly legs make it hard for him to lift her up.
However, his eccentric nature may generate some appeal and so Rosemary Conley may be a better bet to exit in at 7/2 in the Dancing On Ice odds.
Rosemary will be taking the competition more seriously than anyone and she has already admitted to being rejected three times from the show in the past, showing her desperation to take part.
Meanwhile, her constant comments of competing for the older generation may also upset voters rather than appeal to them, leaving her at risk of elimination.
