Will Kelly Rowland be sick note, or sack note?
The absence of Kelly Rowland from the judging panel was the main talking point on this week's X-Factor and it seems that it is not just the fans who are deserting the sinking ship.
William Hill have slashed the price of Kelly missing a second week from 8/1 to 6/4, while it is 33/1 that Simon decides to cut his losses and hand her a sack note on the back of her sick note*.
"Kelly sounded like she was at death's door the other night when she was speaking on the phone and she may well be advised to stay away for another week," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "That said, she might already have sealed her fate."
Janet Devlin is 5/2 favourite to win the show while the Risk are the 3/1 second favourites.
Having beaten the odds once again, Frankie Cocozza is the Even money favourite to get the boot this weekend ahead of 9/2 Kitty Brucknell and 6/1 Little Mix.
