Beharry is soaring away in the telephone vote, according to the Daily Star, despite finishing at the lower end of the judges' leaderboard each week.
A source told the newspaper: "Why do you think we don't reveal the voting figures? There are some big egos that are going to be dented here.
"They're throwing themselves around on the ice trying to win votes and yet it appears, no matter what they do, Johnson will be in the lead."
The insider added: "The risks are real, and there will be a host of stars now wondering if it's worth it. The one thing they have to cling to is that it's early days, but it seems Johnson is the one to beat."
'Comedy' Dave Vitty and US rapper Vanilla Ice, who have avoided the skate-off so far, are apparently struggling in the vote.
