DANCING On Ice star Kye Whyte could be the one to watch when he finally takes to the live show rink.

The BMX Olympic silver medallist, 22, has impressed Dan Whiston, the show’s Associate Creative Director, so much that he’s been called the series underdog.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Dan said: “For me, the underdog is probably Kye. He’s so good. He’s skating with a new pro called Tippy. I’ve worked with Tippy before and she’s fantastic.

“The two of them together just get it, they’re kind of under the radar, they’re the couple people will be like ‘oh my god, he’s amazing’.

“He’s very cool, very young, very fresh. We might be doing something really interesting that might be linked to what he does in his everyday life. That’s all I’m saying.

“What’s great about him, as with Stef [Reid], they’re athletes, they’re so driven.”

Former Strictly star Brendan Cole is currently favourite with bookies to win the series, but Dan believes there are at least six pairings that could go all the way.

The standard is higher than ever, with Dan saying: “When you see show one it will be really exciting for everyone because we’re probably going in at show seven or eight standard normally. “

Kye previously hit back at claims he had an unfair advantage because of his passion for rollerblading as a youngster.

While he admitted to picking up the new discipline fast, he’s fallen plenty in training just like the rest of the competitors.
