Dancing on Ice is almost over for 2022 and there is a final look at the celebrities from the lineup ranked as the favourites to win the series as we look at who will win Dancing On Ice 2022?

Twelve celebrities have competed in the TV studio ice rink for the 14th series of the hit ITV show with regular hosts Holly Willoughby and Philip Schofield making a return to our screens.

The stars have long since been confirmed, with celebrities having fine-tuned their skating skills behind closed doors, attempting to master spins, jumps, and those nailbiting headbangers in the hope that they're not voted off...

Who will win Dancing on Ice 2022?

Regan Gascoigne is still BetVictor's favourite to win Dancing on Ice and has been since the show started. Regan is the clear frontrunner with odds of 1/2 to win the competition. Regan is closely followed by fellow professional dancers, Brendan Cole 11/4 and Kimberly Wyatt 9/2.

Regan is a 25-year-old dancer and the youngest of Dad Paul’s three children.

Six celebrity skaters and their professional partners took to the ice to impress judges in week one, with the remaining six contestants having skated in week two.

Ben Foden and Robin Johnstone faced Ria Hebden & Łukasz Różycki in the skate off and it was Ben Foden was the first elimination. Second, to leave the contest was Ria Hebden. The third celebrity to leave was Rachel Stevens and the fourth celeb to be voted out was Liberty Poole. Fifth skater to leave was Bez and Sally Dynevor became the sixth contestant to leave the show. Stefanie Reid became the seventh person to be voted off Dancing on Ice. The eighth and ninth celebrity to leave was Kye Whyte and Connor Ball.

Sam Boswell, a spokesperson at BetVictor, said, "As many would have guessed, the celebrities who reached the finals in Dancing On Ice are those with a professional dance background.

"In last week's semi-final singer and Pussycat Doll, Kimberly Wyatt, received the highest marks from the judges. Wyatt has received the top score throughout most of the competition. Despite this, Wyatt didn't receive support from the British public and still ended up in the bottom three. Unfortunately, Wyatt has the lowest odds of winning the competition.

"Regan Gascoigne has been BeVictor's Favourite to win for most of the competition. Now that the Olympians and Reality TV Stars have left the competition, Regan's odds of winning have further increased and currently stands at a 1/2 chance of winning.

"Regan's biggest competition is former Strictly Come Dancing Professional Brendan Cole. Cole sparked controversy due to sharing anti-vax sentiments on social media and encouraged people to attend a freedom march, last year. Cole's partner would go on to contract Covid, which caused Cole to briefly being repartnered in the competition.

He added, "With all three celebrities capable of achieving top scores from the judges, it will therefore be up to the public to decide who wins this year's competition."

The choreography element of the show is taken seriously by a panel comprised of Christopher Dean, Jayne Torvill, Oti Mabuse and Ashley Banjo.
