X Factor Winning Act: Matt Terry

Matt Terry heads into Judges’ Houses weekend as the clear favourite to win X Factor 2016, according to the latest odds from our TV desk. 

As the latest round of the competition sees the contestants jet off to glamorous locations around the globe, we rate Matt as the front runner for glory at odds of just 3/1.

Meanwhile, there’s 5/1 on offer that 5AM go the whole way.

Emily Middlemas is also rated as a 5/1 shot to land this year’s bragging rights for Simon Cowell, while Gifty Louise is fancied at 8/1.

And love her or loathe her, Honey G is proving a popular bet with punters as this year’s ‘novelty act’ at 66/1.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Despite a dramatic finale to the six-chair challenge Matt’s the only act that fans are parting ways with serious cash on, which already earmarks him as the one to beat in 2016.”
