At the turn of the year, we put forward Lady Gaga at 5/4 to win the Best Actress award at the Oscars. It’s safe to say you can rip-up those slips as she is now out to 22/1.
Thankfully we put forward James Jordan to win Dancing on Ice 2019 at 5/1 at the same time and he is now top-priced 2/1 for success in that show. Wes Nelson is odds-on to win this show though at 4/6.
I think Nelson may be a monumental lay though given his recent split from girlfriend and Love Island co-star, Megan Barton-Hanson, could prove to have an unflattering back story. The Mirror is reporting Wes Nelson’s dance partner, Vanessa Bauer, is trying to move herself into his hotel while presenter Phillip Schofield appeared to poke fun at the couple on Sunday night, referring to them as “love birds”.
If the pair are pictured together in any seemingly romantic embrace off of the ice, in the coming weeks, it could have catastrophic repercussions to Nelson’s chances of winning the show.
Remember - in the autumn Seann Walsh shot himself in the foot when photographed kissing his dance partner Katya Jones when the prospect of him winning the show was immediately set to zero.
