Jessica Taylor and Ray Quinn have been tipped for success by their Dancing On Ice co-stars.
Former EastEnders actress Gemma Bissix and investigative reporter Donal MacIntyre said the two were leaps and bounds ahead of the rest.
“Jessica is amazing, Ray is fantastic bounding like Tiger – if they could bottle his enthusiasm you know,” said Donal, while Gemma continued by saying “…you would make a fortune.”
Donal said he didn’t rate his own chances after being described by coaches as “undercooked spaghetti.”
“The coaches say ‘relax, relax harder’ and they said I skated like undercooked spaghetti so I don’t think that’s good. (I’m) very stiff, but I am falling well,” he said.
Former Liberty X singer Jessica has something of an advantage over the other contestants – she appeared in the one-off special Strictly Ice Dancing in 2004, coming second to winner David Seaman.
Dancing On Ice begins on Sunday, January 11 on ITV1.
