Britain’s Got Talent betting update: Who’s hot and who’s not so far?

We’re only a couple of weeks into this year’s Britain’s Got Talent, but we’ve already seen two acts receive the Golden Buzzer, handing them a direct route to the semi-finals.

However, neither are favourites to win the competition.

That’s a position which has been held by Missing People Choir (3/1) since their audition aired on the opening night of the series. And given the array of talent we’ve seen so far, it’s going to take something special to knock them off top spot in this market.

Of the two Golden Buzzer acts, it’s Sarah Ikumu (9/2who looks more likely to win than Daliso Chaponda (10/1), although the latter has certainly caught our eye and could be one to watch.

But Sarah just kept on getting better in her opening audition and, quite simply, there’s no reason she can’t go the distance.

In the 10 years the show has been running, we’re yet to see a comedian go all the way and win – but Daliso could buck that trend.

Meanwhile, Richard Jones became the first magician to win BGT back in 2016, and 11/1 says Issy Simpson can make it two wins in as many years for the world of magic.

Another contestant who has been attracting interest is Reuben Gray. The 16-year-old singer-songwriter remains a 12/1 shot to win the show, but he pulled at viewers’ heartstrings last time out.

Were he to make the semis, a performance of a similar level would likely see his odds fall even further.

As for the rank outsiders, dog yoga duo Mahny and Robbie are way out at 200/1, a price they share with Dan Graham, the body-popping policeman. Yep, you read that all of that right.
