X-Factor: Amelia’s Emotional Roller Coaster To Continue...
Since being reinstated just two weeks ago, Amelia Lily's X-Factor fortunes have come full circle. Having been the 3/1 favourite with William Hill after her first performance back on stage, she was in the bottom two last week and is now the firm favourite to get the boot this week. She is 11/8 to go this week with Misha Bryan the 9/4 second favourite.
"Amelia Lily's X-Factor experience has been a tumultuous one and it does not look as though she will get a moment's rest - being the favourite to go this weekend," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Another act who have experienced the highs and lows of the X-Factor game, have been Little Mix and from an initial 50/1, they find themselves the 15/8 favourites. When the band was first formed, one far-sighted punter from South London staked £130 at 50/1 and could stand to win £6,630 while the biggest bet on the act is £1,000 at 8/1.
"We have never seen a plunge in price like this before and it could be the biggest X-Factor gamble ever landed should Little Mix win," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "In the past favourites have always remained that way throughout the majority of the show but this year has been wide open and the girl group hold all the aces going into the final weeks."
