X Factor: Can ‘Little Mix’ Beat The Reality TV Curse?
Hot favourite Mark Wright's failure to win I'm A Celebrity is astonishingly the fourth reality TV favourite to fail at the final hurdle in a row. Other victims of the 'curse of the favourite' include Alex from BB, Jedward from CBB and Ronan Park off BGT. Therefore, Little Mix might not be pleased to hear that they are the 11/10 favourites with William Hill to win the X Factor, whilst Amelia can be backed at 9/4 and Marcus Collins is a 11/4 shot.
"It is the closest X Factor for years and any of the finalists could win this, but I doubt any of them will want to start as favourite on Sunday night!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
