Cheryl Cole has not only had a great week because her single, Fight For This Love smashed all previous record sales when hitting the number one spot this weekend, but also her X Factor contestant, Joe McElderry is now odds-on favourite to win the show.
For weeks the favourite to win the show was Danyl Johnson, but after his smug (but good) performance landed him in the sing-off this weekend, punters have lost confidence in him, meaning Joseph McElderry is now the favourite with the punters.
Not only is Joe McElderry now favourite to win The X Factor, but he’s Cheryl Cole’s only real chance of winning the show for the second year in a row, after Rikki Loney from her category was voted out two weeks ago, and her other contestant Lloyd Daniels is just… well, a poor man’s Joe McElderry.
Currently The X Factor Betting Odds currently stand at:
- 7-2 : Joe McElderry
