Dancing on Ice 2013

There's so much reality TV on of late that it's a challenge to keep up with it all. This year's Dancing On Ice is already well under way. We've already waved goodbye to Pamela Anderson - who came want went so fast her onscreen time she reportedly cost ITV £1000 per minute and is now set up appear in the Dutch version of the show. Luckless Shayne Ward has also been sent packing.

Out of the remaining contestants Beth Tweddle and Matt Lapinskas are short favourites, with Gareth Thomas, Samia Ghadie and Luke Campbell being given outside chances of winning. It will be interesting to see who goes tonight. We could be seeing the departure of one of the show's funnymen, Keith Chegwin and Joe Pasquale.

England vs Brazil

At we typically concentrate on reality TV betting, but popular television sporting events also grab our attention. Tonight England take on Brazil in a football friendly. You never quite know what you're going to get with England, and from looking at the current odds for tonight's match I'd say that very little has changed in that department. Of course the patriot in me is rooting for England, though it has to be said that Brazil aren't bad odds at 2.42. Still we have a pretty strong team out so that's something worth factoring in.

Here are head to head stats for the last 23 encounters:


Brazil only have friendlies from now until the World Cup, whereas England have one eye on upcoming World Cup qualifiers and avoiding injury.

Splash Final

The odds would have us believe that Eddie The Eagle Edwards is a dead cert in the grand final of ITV's Splash. He's currently 1.16 with Betfair. It would be hard to disagree with this assessment as he has previous form on reality TV shows. Out of the three remaining contestants I'd say that Jake Canuso (9-1) is probably the best diver, but  his excellent dive wasn't enough to make him a favourite with phone voters, meaning that he had to be saved by the panel. A newly bruised and battered Linda Barker, injured during practice, is currently 10-1.

I noticed that the Daily Mail have referred to Eddie as 'Britain's Biggest Loser', when in reality calling him the 'People's champion' would probably be a better way of describing him. Enjoy the show!
