Matthew Wolfenden is the bookmakers' favourite to triumph on this weekend's Dancing on Ice finale.

The Emmerdale star has been near the top of the judges' scores throughout the series and won immunity in yesterday's semi-final thanks to his performances on the ice.

Wolfenden is currently the 4/7 odds-on favourite to win the series, while former favourite Jorgie Porter has drifted to 2/1 after ending up in last night's skate-off.

X Factor star Chico, who replaced Chesney Hawkes on the show following an injury, is the outsider for the title. However, the singer's odds have been slashed considerably following his semi-final routines and punters can now get odds of 6/1 on him at Ladbrokes.

"We're confident Wolfenden will walk away as the Ice King. If he doesn't win it will be one of the biggest upsets in reality TV history," said a Ladbrokes rep.

"We can't write off Chico, though, he caused a huge upset by making the final and punters have latched on to the underdog."

The Dancing on Ice final takes place on Sunday, March 25 on ITV1.
