Honest Frank's odds: 14/1
Scottish skiing star Alain Baxter hopes to be named Superstars' King of the Hill.

The 29-year-old lives for the snow, spending 30 weeks a year on the slopes.

Baxter made the British team when he was just 16 and competed at the Nagano and the Salt Lake City Olympics.

He took Bronze in 2002, but controversially had to return his medal after a positive drugs test.

Swapping skis for rally car in April, the daredevil Scot clearly enjoys a challenge - but he is not looking forward to the long run.

Baxter plays tennis regularly and enjoys swimming.

And, since cycling, gym work and running form part of his regular training programme, he could be among the favourites to slope off with the title.
