Stevi Ritchie favourite for X Factor chop this weekend

Stevi Ritchie will finally face the axe from The X Factor this weekend according to the latest odds from Ladbrokes.

It’s the news that devoted X Factor fans have been waiting for as novelty act Stevi looks set to finally leave the competition on Sunday night as the odds-on 4/7 favourite to be eliminated. However, should he manage to scrape through once again it looks like Only The Young will take the fall at 4/1.

Andrea remains in the hot seat as the 11/8 favourite to win this year’s series, with Ben slowly but surely creeping up on him in the betting at 3/1.

And finally, Simon Cowell needn’t start worrying just yet as former X Factor favourite Wagner enters the race as a 100/1 outsider to take the Christmas Number One single. Band Aid 30 is most fancied by the bookies for the top spot at 8/11.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Week after week punters keep backing Stevi to be eliminated, but thankfully the odds suggest he’s finally used up his last wish from the Genie.”

She added: “At this stage Wagner’s a rank outsider for the Christmas top spot, but should the Anti-Cowell brigade come out in force it won’t be long before the odds are slashed and he becomes a serious contender.”
