Brian McFadden, Richard Blackwood and Emma Atkins odds-on to join Dancing On Ice

DANCING ON ICE may not return to our screens until January 2019 but rumours are already rife as to who will don the skates and take to the ice. Brian McFadden is a red-hot at 1/10 with Boylesports to be amongst the line-up after reportedly snubbing the upcoming Westlife reunion tour and album.

Dancing On Ice bosses teased a celeb on their social media, which fans seem to think was Eastenders actor Richard Blackwood, resulting in Boylesports making him a 1/5 shot to be part of the line-up.

Fans were thrown into a further frenzy when a clip of woman’s face was shown, leading them to speculate that it could be one of two celebs. Emmerdale’s Emma Atkins (AKA Charity Dingle) and former Strictly Come Dancing star Gaby Roslin were the two emerging favourites, but the betting suggests it was in fact Emma who is now 1/5 to take part. That doesn’t entirely rule out Gaby Roslin from signing up as she is priced at 13/2 with Boylesports to do so.

Other rumoured names include, Love Island’s Wes Nelson (13/8) and Dani Dyer (5/2), Coronation Street’s Lucy Fallon (15/8), Blue Peter’s Helen Skelton (5/1), This Morning and Big Brother’s Bit On The Side presenter Rylan Clarke-Neal (8/1) and First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon (33/1).

Aoife Heffron, spokesperson for Boylesports commented: “Brian McFadden’s calendar is clear after reports suggested he turned down the Westlife reunion tour so it looks like all systems are go to see him following in the footsteps of his ex-wife Kerry Katona, who took to the rink in 2011.”
