With the 2022 series of Dancing On Ice set to kick off in just a matter of days, experts have revealed the contestants most likely to skate their way to the winner's trophy, thanks to one particular advantage.

Dancing On Ice 2022 will glide onto our screens this Sunday, with the all-star line-up having been confirmed and presenters, Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield, set to return. 

And along with the brand new Dancing On Ice cast will come a shake-up on the judging panel, with Strictly Come Dancing icon Oti Mabuse taking over from John Barrowman this year. 

Meanwhile, the stars set to be front-runners for the Dancing On Ice 2022 crown have already been revealed by experts.

Who will win Dancing On Ice 2022?

It's been predicted that former Strictly Come Dancing ballroom pro, Brendon Cole, and Love Island 2021 star, Liberty Poole, will have a head start when it comes to winning over the public vote and making it far in the figure skating contest.

Thanks to the advantage of their already solid fan based, formed as a result of making a name for themselves on their respective reality TV shows, it's been said that Brendon and Liberty have a better chance of stealing the show than other members of this year's Dancing On Ice cast.

Of course, Brendon also has the added skill of ballroom dancing, which he will no doubt be able to transfer to the ice. 

Brendon is in first place, with 3/1 odds of being this year's Dancing On Ice winner, with influencer Liberty falling in close second, with a 9/2 chance, according to bookmaker BetVictor.

"Ahead of show Brendan Cole is the clear favourite at 3/1. Cole will arrive with plenty of dancing experience from his years on Strictly. We expect to see Love Island finalist Liberty Poole to perform well in the competition," a BetVictor spokesperson explained. 

"Poole is certainly popular with the public and could have huge support from her 1.5 million Instagram followers. Pop princesses Rachael Stevens and Kimberly Wyatt are both 7/1 and will have a solid grounding of moving to a beat which should ensure they reach the later stages of the Sunday night show."
