Andy to fail to make the final six on Dancing On Ice

| 25.02.2012

The Dancing On Ice betting has been proved right the last four weeks with the elimination favourites being sent home, but Sam Nixon is about to buck this trend as Andy Whyment is the superior option at 5/2 hang up his skates.

Corey Feldman, Charlene Tilton, Rosemary Conley and Heidi Range have all gone home when favourites to do so and it is Sam at 2/1 that is the market leader to not make the final six celebrities.

It is a close call between Sam and Andy as the pair are not only likely to be propping up the leaderboard, but are potentially attracting and competing over the same group of public voters.

The duo both arguably utilise the comedy factor to win over voters and Andy perhaps has the edge given that he is more recognised by viewers because of his lengthy time on the cast of Coronation Street.

However, Sam may make the better fist of the Rock Night theme of the show and also averages a higher score than Andy across the series as a whole.

Many punters may see Chemmy Alcott as a leading contender, having successfully survived the skate-off in each of the last two weeks.

The British Olympic skier has clearly failed to gather the same batch of loyal voters as her rivals, but her likeable and encouraging personality should see her survive another week.

Meanwhile, she would probably score more than Sam or Andy in the skate-off if she did end up in this position for a third show in succession.

Chemmy is 9/4 in the Dancing on Ice odds to be the next act eliminated, with the only other semi-serious contender being Jennifer Ellison at 4/1.

But Jennifer is likely to be given a good slot on the show to help her cause, having been sent out to skate in the first half of contestants in every show to date.
