Who will be winner of  Dancing On Ice 2023? Bookies odds see Nile Wilson heading for a landslide victory
Published 3 weeks ago on Mar 10, 2023

Tensions heat up in the skating competition as joey Essex will perform with partner Vanessa Bauer, Nile Wilson will dance with Olivia Smart and The Vivienne is teamed with Colin Grafton.

Kicking off at 6:30pm and running for an hour and a half on Sunday 12 March, the live final will see judges jayne Torvill, Christopher Dean, Ashley Banjo and Oti Mabuse return to the panel to cast their votes once more.

As Joey, Nile and The Vivienne remain the last three celebrities standing, who is predicted to win this series?

 

Nile Wilson - 1/4 odds

Leading the pack, Nile is the online bookmakers favourite to win this years competition by landslide, with an 80% probability.

After scoring a perfect 10 from each judge and bagging a full 40/40 mark for his performance last week, the Olympian has provided a number of breath-taking routines throughout the series.

According to Betvictor, Nile's odds to win are 1/4 - putting him in the top spot for a win.

With 2-time Scottish champion skater Daniel King sharing: 'Nile certainly seems to be the favourite for the judges.

'Although all three of the finalist’s performances are at a similar level. There aren't many points between 38, 39 and 40. So I think it will all depend on the public vote.'

The three finalists are all set to perform a bolero routine, with Nile sharing this week: 'We've got some exciting stuff in store this week. It's a huge production.'

The Vivienne - 5/1 odds

Despite suffering a nasty fall during the solo skate challenge in the show's semi-final, The Vivienne is predicted to bag second place.

Trailing miles behind the expected winner, this prediction is still a massive ray of hope for the drag queen, who was previously predicted third. 

With odds of 5/1 as of March 8, this is a last-minute switch up for the RuPaul's Drag Race star, who was previously trailing behind Joey Essex.

This means that there is a 16.7% chance it could be The Vivienne holding that trophy.

Speaking ahead of the performance during an appearance on Good Morning Britain this week, the star shared: 'The bolero is something that changed history. I might be paying homage to Jayne with my costume.

'We want to pay homage to Chris and Jayne. The pressure is on when you're skating it in front of the people who created it.' 

Joey Essex - 7/1 odds 

Joey has been bumped off the no.2 spot after previously being the outright second favourite to win.

Now with 7/1 odds, the former TOWIE star trails at a still-impressive predicted third place - a 12.5% chance of winning according to BetVictor.

The TV personality has already revealed what fans can expect to see from him during the final, sharing this week that he and Vanessa will pay snag some of Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean's moves during their bolero.

Winning gold at the 1984 Winter Olympics with the routine, the professional dancers have given Joey and his partner some inspiration.

Admitting that the final bout of training has been hardcore, Joey shared: 'I feel like I'm training for the Olympics. I've not done anything, I've not gone out, I've been dedicated to this competition.'
