One Direction New Favourite For X Factor!
Following a flurry of bets on One Direction, the Bieber Bunch are the new 5/2 favourites to win the X Factor, having overtaking long time leader Matt Cardle!
Matt is the 11/4 second favourite and Yummy Mummy Rebecca Ferguson is priced at 5/1.
"The young lads are just the right group to appeal to the X-Factor demographic and it is a surprise that it has taken them so long to become the favourites," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Wacky Wagner and Belle Amie are the 5/2 joint favourites for elimination this weekend with Paije Richardson the 11/2 third favourite to get the boot.
