Television is all about escapism apparently. We watch Home and Away to vicariously enjoy life on the beach. We watch Hollyoaks as our own life is alas not filled with glamorous blondes. And we watch Antiques Roadshow because we know that one day we will all end up in a small pot, as a dozy great-nephew sells us to Fiona Bruce for a tenner. With this in mind, ITV honchos must be pretty pleased that we are yet to witness the deluge of snow many were forecasting (although primarily weather forecasters.) So what better way to indulge in a bit of winter weather escapism than Dancing on Ice, which in keeping with the time of year, have also removed their holly. Enter Christine Bleakley, who, let's be honest given her career trajectory, is probably a contestant on this within three years....

Former Atomic Kitten and tabloid favourite has decided that slating the ex-Peter Andre is a wise move, and maybe it will be. Meanwhile other contestants are playing it safe by snogging their ice partners... Having whittled down the line-up over the past two weeks, Dancing on Ice 2011 can now start for real. As can the betting. Sam Attwater seems to be the judges' favourite right now, and with Chloe Madeley and Laura Hamilton hot on his heels, this might well be the first time that he has ever been the most famous name in a sentence about celebrities. Attwater is also very much the favourite with the Betfair market too - trading at a staggering 1.97. We love a bandwagon, so he can have our support too. As previously pointed out, SA has the right combination of male genitals and a ...

In this time of economic peril, with the country undergoing more cuts than an origami class, ITV's strategic thinking seems a little puzzling. Spending ample pennies training up all these celebs to skate, only to boot four out before the competition begins, seems a little out of keeping with the national mood. Angela Rippon hasn't reflected the national mood since about 1977, so it was little surprise to see her skate off into the sunset on Sunday. Rippon is apparently absolutely livid about this, despite being a distinctly average ice skater. She vented this fury with a rant about judge Jason Gardiner, suggesting that how dare he call her boring! Or something like that - was too bored to listen. Also out was Nadia Sawalha - upsetting for her no doubt but not as distressing as when...

In 100 years time, when military historians sit and debate the reasons for the decline of the British army, no doubt many theories will be posited. The Suez farce undoubtedly marked the end of British 'superpower' status. Joining the EU has irreversibly diluted our ability to independently defend this sceptred isle. But above all, those velvet jacketed historians will point to January 2011, and the television appearance of Johnson Beharry VC in sequins. Be the best indeed. Yes kids, it's so back it hurts. If you like dancing, and you like ice, well you're in for a treat over the next few months. Dancing on Ice returns this weekend, bringing with it celebrities, skating, and above all, Holly Willoughby on prime time television (typically only available to the lucky old unemployed.) Contestants...

The Dancing On Ice 2011 line-up is out and we can start building our betting portfolio long before the stars don their skates for the first time on January 9. But how can we tell our Ray Quinn's from our Todd Carty's before they've even skated? Well, we can't quite do that, but there are several [b]key trends[/b] that can point us in the right direction, even at this early stage. The first thing to note is that [b]gender is irrelevant[/b]. In five previous series we have had two male and three female winners, which tells us that there is no gender bias on the ice (as opposed to, say, I'm A Celebrity, where the winner is normally a man). Secondly, [b]age is crucial[/b]. It makes sense that the winning skater would be relatively young - it's a physically demanding show, after all...
