Britain's Got Talent 2016 has a new favourite to win

britains got talent favourites

A trio of acts are fighting it out at the top to be crowned winner of Britain's Got Talent 2016.

Following the weekend's latest auditions, Ant and Dec’s golden buzzer act, Jasmine Elcock, has shot straight to the top of the Britain’s Got Talent betting and is now breathing down the necks of favourites, Another Kind of Blue.

Jasmine stunned everyone with her rendition of Cher’s Believe and secured her place in the live shows when Ant and Dec pushed the golden buzzer. The 14-year-old is now a firm contender for the title as the 4/1 second favourite to Another Kind of Blue (7/2), alongside fellow golden buzzer act, 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott.

Also making waves on Saturday were classical group Vox Fortis, who are 1/10 to follow in the footsteps of 2014 winners Collabro.

Crossbow daredevil Ben Blaque threatened Simon Cowell’s life in a dangerous stunt that had everyone holding their breath and saw him go into the betting at 25/1.

The rest of the hopefuls who made it through may have impressed the judges but are lagging in the betting. Welsh Latin dancers Ystrad Fawr, gymnast duo Sam and Hector and ballet couple Shannon and Peter are all priced at 40/1 to win with Spartan Resurrection 50/1 shots.

The outsider of the bunch is Richard Bayton, who is 100/1 to go all the way second time around.

Aoife Heffron from bookies BoyleSports saoid: “We most certainly believe Jasmine can take the BGT title as she rivals favourites Another Kind of Blue at 4/1. The singers have taken over the golden buzzers and have been the pick with punters also.”

She added: “Beau Dermott continues to see support from punters, but is beginning to be overshadowed by the newcomers.”
