Love Island’s Liberty Poole has been tipped to win next year’s Dancing On Ice – before the show has even kicked off.
The 21-year-old former Nando’s waitress is set to make her first million after landing a series of lucrative deals since appearing on the ITV dating series.
And after dramatically quitting Love Island with ex Jake Cornish, she’s now got her sights set on winning another reality TV show.
Liberty is bookmaker Coral’s favourite to win Dancing On Ice 2022, with current odds of 3-1.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Liberty has been out of the most successful stars of Love Island outside of the villa and we think her star will continue to rise, making her the favourite to win next year’s Dancing on Ice.”
But the TV beauty might have an unfair advantage as she revealed her mum used to be a figure skater.
She added: “I grew up watching Dancing On Ice. I ice skate as a hobby sometimes so I can get around the rink.
“But I can’t do any tricks, no pirouetting or anything, so I’m really looking forward to pushing myself and learning as much as I possibly can.
“Not just skating, but actually dancing on ice. Bring it on!”
Liberty is up against some strong competition in the show, which will air on ITV early next year.
Former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt and professional Strictly dancer Brendan Cole could certainly give Liberty a run for her money. While S Club 7 singer Rachel Stevens is also in the line-up.
Despite some contestants having previous dancing experience, not all are tipped for success.
Unsurprisingly, Strictly’s Brendan Cole, 45, is second favourite to win, with odds of 4-1.
This is followed by 22-year-old Olympic BMX rider Kye Whyte with 5-1 and former rugby player Ben Foden with odds of 6-1.
Bez from the Happy Mondays, Vamps singer and guitarist Connor Ball, This Morning presenter Ria Hebden, Paralympian Stef Reid and Paul Gasgoine’s son Regan, 25, who is a trained dancer, will also compete.
But spare a thought for Coronation Street ‘s Sally Dynevor, who plays Sally Webster on the ITV soap, who at this stage is bookies’ favourite to come last.
She currently has the longest odds of all the contestants, at 50-1.
“We’re not holding out much hope for Corrie’s Sally on the ice, making her the least likely winner of the show and expecting her to be one of the first eliminated on the 2022 series,” Aitkenhead added.
