Love Island winner Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu has been named the "favourite to win" Dancing on Ice by bookmakers William Hill.

The reality star came to fame in the Summer when she joined popular ITV2 dating show, Love Island. Her hilarious antics and eventual romance with beau Davide Sanclimenti, the pair went on to win the £50,000 prize fund and the British public's heart.

A spokesperson for William Hill has confirmed that becoming a favourite on the dating show could see her skate her way to the final on the prestigious dance-skating competition.

“She often found herself on thin ice in the early stages of Love Island, and in the coming weeks we’ll be able to see Ekin-Su put on some skates to navigate similar circumstances," the spokesperson said.

They continued: "We are 3/1 for the TV reality star to win her second successive show when Dancing on Ice commences next weekend, making her the outright favourite to win the hearts of the British public once again."

Ekin-Su has been rearing to go, posting behind-the-scenes videos and photos to her Instagram. She posted her professional Dancing On Ice photo, which showed her in the middle of a skating post.

She added the caption: "Not long now ‘til show day. I can’t wait for you all to see what I’ve been working on! So grateful for this opportunity and lucky to be working with such talented people."

Ekin-Su was announced as a competitor in the show, alongside former EastEnders star Patsy Palmer, Coronation Street's Mollie Gallagher and TOWIE legend Joey Essex, who the bookies say fans should also keep an eye on.

"Also keep an eye on Nile Watson (7/2) and Joey Essex (4/1), who have also been backed to glide to glory in the 15th edition of the much-loved show," they spokesperson revealed.
