Here’s a rundown of the favourites on Britain’s Got Talent 2019 as the semi-finals continue.
Britain’s Got Talent returned to our screens on Monday night for the first live show of the series.
New favourites have been unleashed at the head of the market to win this year’s Britain’s Got Talent after viewers were won over by one semi-final performance in particular.
Dave and Finn, the mind-reading double act made up of a popular police dog and his owner, took the lead in the betting after they wowed the audience with a new trick that appeared to transmit the contents of a pre-recorded video into the minds of the judges.
The stunning display and standing ovation saw the duo attract the bulk of the public vote during the first of the semi-finals, seeing them advance to the final and gain a new wave of market support.
Bookies BoyleSports had them at 6/1 to win this year’s contest but they have now closed into 10/3, making them the new frontrunners to be crowned winners in Sunday’s finale.
Previous favourites Flakefleet have drifted to 7/1 from 11/4 despite getting the green light from the judges to appear in the final. Thirty-two acts remain to be whittled down, with Amanda Holden’s Golden Buzzer act Chapter 13 joint second favourites at 5/1 alongside dangerman Jonathan Goodwin.
Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Viewers have copped on to the rising popularity of the retired police dog and his owner and the new support has left us with no choice but to make them the new favourites at 10/3 from 6/1.
“The strength of their public vote makes them a big danger and we’ll see if the other semi-finalists can prove that punters are barking up the wrong tree.”
