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!
