Dancing on Ice’s Ryan Thomas is set to face yet another blow to his skating journey as his chance of winning the series isn’t looking as good as it once did.
After Claire Sweeney was booted from the competition on Sunday, the remaining skaters must put their best foot forward as the competition ramps up.
Last weekend, actor Thomas donned a see-though shirt as he performed a raunchy Tango as part of the show’s dance week.
However, his moves may have fallen short with viewers as his odds of winning the series have suffered a huge blow.
Thomas has slipped from being the favourite to win all the way to joint third alongside Miles Nazaire.
According to bookmakers at OLBG.com, Thomas’ odds now stand at 4/1, with Adele Roberts taking the top spot from him with odds of 9/4 .

Eddie ‘the Eagle’ Edwards sits in second place with 7/2 odds, and further down the list is Greg Rutherford with 11/2 odds.
Entertainment betting expert Jake Ashton from OLBG.com spoke of the odds and said: “Adele Roberts is now the clear betting favourite at 9/4 to win this year’s Dancing on Ice with bookmakers now changing the betting market right around after the latest lot of dances!”
Unfortunately for the skating duo, they suffered a fall during last weekend’s dress rehearsal where Thomas dropped Fancy, leaving them both shaken.
Thomas became unsteady on the ice and the pair came crashing down during preparations for their steamy routine.

After brushing themselves off, he admitted he was left riddled with “guilt” and told Fancy: “I’m so sorry. [I feel] pure guilt because it’s all my fault.”
Thankfully for Thomas and Fancy, their live performance went ahead without a hitch and they received an overall score of 29 from the judges.
For Roberts, who has the best odds at winning the series, she once again left the judges stunned with her moves and has found herself at a comfortable position on the leaderboard since the start of the competition.
She performed a Charleston on Sunday and received a score of 7.5 across the board despite viewers noticing a couple of stumbles.
