Britain's Got Talent 2016: Beau Dermott is still the favourite to win

Beau Dermott

Beau Dermott remains the favourite to win Britain's Got Talent 2016 after the latest round of auditions.

This week everything from an upside down pianist to a dancing dinosaur went before the judges.

But as far as the bookies' odds are concerned, Britain’s Got Talent saved the best till last in their latest instalment of auditions, as Kathleen Jenkins blew everyone away with her emotional rendition of Wild Horses. Kathleen, a cleaner from Newport, is a strong contender for the title at 7/1.

Another stand out performance from the third round of auditions were Irish choir, The Presentation Choir, who hail from Kilkenny. The choir, lead by Veronica McCarron, feature in the top five of the betting and are currently a 10/1 shot to win.

David Walliams secured his Golden Buzzer act in the form of love birds, Ian and Anne Marshall, who sang Beyonce’s Crazy In Love to mark their 44th wedding anniversary. Unfortunately for David they are longshots to win at 66/1.

Drag Queen Ruby Murray’s operatic performance impressed, as did singing impressionist Craig Ball and both have gone into the betting a 20/1. 17-year-old dancer Balance provided the audience with a blast from the past as his routine went through some of the most iconic dances through the years and is priced at 25/1 to win.

Acts featuring in the lower end of the betting from week three are Dmitry and Kseniia the dancing acrobats at 50/1 and Bespoke Candi, who mixed fire dancing with a T-Rex, at 66/1. 68-year-old Colin Henry, who played the piano whilst doing a head stand, joins the most powerful couple in the world, Lisa and Chris Pitman, who smashed 1,000 tiles with their hands, at 100/1 apiece.

Aoife Heffron from bookmakers BoyleSports said: “Singers dominated Britain’s Got Talent’s third week of auditions with Cathleen Jenkins and The Presentation Choir both placing in the top five of the betting at 7/1 and 10/1 respectively. We have already seen patriotic support for the Kilkenny choir which we suspect will only grow as they progress.”

She added: “Beau Dermott is now sharing favouritism with Another Kind of Blue after the visual dance act saw a boost in support and were cut into 4/1 from 8/1. As a result they now pose the biggest liability in the betting and should the support continue for Another Kind of Blue they could overtake Beau to become sole favourites in the coming days.”
