So, settle in and let’s enhance your Dancing on Ice experience with a dash of betting excitement.
Stephen Mulhern Replaces Phillip Schofield
Before we even get to who has been cast in the the show, the big news is the change in host!
Phillip Schofield, a familiar face since 2006, has stepped down, paving the way Stephen Mulhern to replace him as co-presenter.
But will he be standing alongside Holly Willoughby or will she too, step away from her role on the show?
The simple answer is that nobody knows. Since she quit ‘This Morning’ she has decided to remain out of the limelight, concentrating on her Wylde Moon brand instead.
Of course, that doesn’t mean she has binned off the show altogether, she just hasn’t confirmed it one way or the other!
Thankfully, Mulhern is no stranger to the Dancing on Ice stage, having stepped in for Schofield in 2022 when he tested positive for COVID. He’s a fun personality and we think he will make a fitting addition to the team.
Now, with the stage set for a new era of Dancing on Ice 2024, let’s add a dash of excitement to your viewing experience.
Have you ever considered betting on the show? It’s a fun, light-hearted way to engage with the show and test your predictive powers.
And who knows, you might even win a little something!
Understanding the Odds
If you’re new to the betting world, the concept of odds might seem a bit daunting.
But don’t worry; it’s simpler than it looks. Here’s a quick guide to help you understand the basics:
What Are Odds?
In betting terms, odds are a way of expressing the likelihood of an event happening. They tell you how much you stand to win if your bet is successful.
How Do Odds Work?
Let’s say you’re betting on a contestant to win Dancing on Ice 2024. If their odds are 4/1 (read as “four to one”), this means that for every £1 you bet, you’ll win £4 if that contestant does indeed win.
So, if you bet £10, you would receive £40 in winnings, plus your original £10 stake back, for a total of £50.
Odds and Probability
Odds are directly related to the probability of an event happening. The lower the odds, the higher the probability that the event (in this case, a contestant winning Dancing on Ice 2024) will occur.
So, a contestant with odds of 2/1 is more likely to win than a contestant with odds of 10/1.
Calculating Potential Winnings
To calculate potential winnings, you multiply your stake by the odds. For example, if you bet £10 on a contestant with odds of 4/1, you would win £40 (£10 stake x 4).
Your total return would be £50, which includes your original £10 stake.
Remember, betting should always be a fun activity, and it’s important only to bet what you can afford to lose.
Know Your Contestants
The more you know about the contestants, the better your chances of making a successful bet. Are they a former athlete with a competitive streak?
Do they have a background in ballet or gymnastics that could give them an edge? Or maybe they’re a complete novice but have a huge fan base that could keep them in the competition?
With that in mind, let’s take a look who could be skating their way to victory in 2024…

Favourites for the Show
When it comes to predicting the winners of Dancing on Ice 2024, looking at past winners can offer some interesting insights.
Over the fifteen series broadcast to date, a diverse range of celebrities have taken home the trophy, from soap stars to sports personalities.
For instance, the first series was won by actress Gaynor Faye, who partnered with Daniel Whiston. The second series saw a shift in the type of celebrity, with former rugby player Kyran Bracken skating his way to victory with Melanie Lambert.
Interestingly, the fourth and ninth series were both won by Ray Quinn, who partnered with Maria Filippov, making him the only celebrity to win the show twice.
This could suggest that previous experience on the ice might give contestants an edge in the competition.
The most recent series, the fifteenth, was won by gymnast Nile Wilson and his partner Olivia Smart. This continues the trend of athletes doing well in the competition, perhaps due to their physical fitness and competitive nature.
Looking at the history of the show, some fun facts emerge. For example, professional skater Daniel Whiston has won the show three times, more than any other professional skater, with partners Gaynor Faye, Hayley Tamaddon, and Beth Tweddle.
Another interesting fact is that Vanessa Bauer has been the professional partner of the runner-up three times, with partners Jake Quickenden, Wes Nelson, and Brendan Cole.
Could this mean that being partnered with Vanessa increases a celebrity’s chances of making it to the final?
Predicting the Winners
While it’s impossible to predict with certainty who will win the upcoming series of Dancing on Ice, looking at past winners can give us some clues.
Athletes and those with previous dance or performance experience have an edge. However, the show is also known for its surprises, so it’s always worth keeping an open mind.
Remember, when it comes to betting on Dancing on Ice 2024, the most important thing is to have fun. Enjoy the show, make your predictions, and who knows, you might do a victory dance of your own!
Don’t Forget the Judges
While the public vote is crucial, don’t forget about the judges. Their scores can make or break contestants’ chances of staying in the competition.
Try to understand their preferences and biases. Do they favour technical skill over artistic interpretation? Do they have a soft spot for the underdog?
So, there you have it, folks! A fun, light-hearted guide to betting on Dancing on Ice.
Whether you’re a seasoned gambler or a complete newbie, I hope this has given you a few tips and tricks to make your viewing experience even more enjoyable.
