Singer Beau Dermott and dog Trip Hazard are the VERY early favourites to win Britain's Got Talent 2016

We may only be one show in but bookies are already taking bets on which of the ten acts through to the next round could go on to win.

And after the first set of auditions, this year's Britain’s Got Talent already has a clear favourite.

12-year-old Beau Dermott amazed the audience with her flawless rendition of Defying Gravity from Wicked and had everyone on their feet. Beau is the first to get a golden buzzer when judge Amanda Holden quickly pushed it, sending her straight to the live shows and is the early 3/1 favourite to go all the way.

Dancing dog act Trip Hazard and Lucy melted hearts with their adorable routine and are on Beau’s tail as the 12/1 second favourites.

Swordsman Alex Magala had everyone hiding behind their cushions when he showcased his astonishing sword swallowing capabilities and is currently third in the betting at 14/1.

Also impressing were The Collaborative Orchestra (20/1), impressionist Darren Altman (25/1), foot-juggling duo The Tongi Brothers (33/1) and dance troupe Elite Squad Royalz.

Other young acts that made it through were 11-year-old comedian George Kavanagh and 11-year-old dancer Paisley Kerswell, who both went into the betting at 66/1.

The outsider of the first round of hopefuls is self-named music superhero Vitaly Voronko at 100/1, who scraped through after convincing the judges to change their mind.

Aoife Heffron from bookies BoyleSports said: “Beau Dermott blew everyone away with her performance of Defying Gravity and undoubtedly deserved the Golden Buzzer. It may be early days but she is holding onto favouritism at 3/1 with her nearest competition Trip Hazard and Lucy at 12/1.”

She added: “Dogs have evidently stolen the hearts of the BGT public as we have already seen support from punters for Trip Hazard and Lucy. However they have a tough act to follow in reigning champions Jules and Matisse and at 12/1 will need to pull out all the stops.”
