Three weeks into X Factor Celebrity and it’s already being labelled a fix as angry fans flock to Twitter to vent their anger.
Martin Bashir exited the show on Sunday after receiving the fewest votes from the public before V5 were saved by the judges at the expense of the popular No Love Lost, sending social media into meltdown.
No Love Lost, made up of former Love Island contestants of course, were popular amongst younger viewers and many tipped them to go far in the competition.
They could still reach the final, though, after Simon Cowell decided to allow the most popular eliminated act to compete in the final.
Anyhow, 7 acts still remain and it’s former TOWIE star Meghan McKenna who heads the betting at 2/5.
The 27 year old put in another solid performance to enhance her credentials, surely she won’t be beaten?
Her biggest competition is likely to be Max and Harvey – who? – the duo are 5/1 to win the competition outright and 8/11 to be the top group in the competition. But they face stern competition from V5 who are 13/8 for top group and third in the outright betting at 10/1.
Vinnie Jones is going under the radar slightly.
The former football hard man is a healthy looking 22/1 to win the inaugural show outright and 6/1 for a top three finish, which wouldn’t be the worst six to one shot in the world. He’s popular amongst football fans and the older generation will be fond of his style.
Could be worth a punt.
Try Star 33/1 and Kevin McHale 50/1 remain big outsiders to claim glory this Christmas.
