Rachael Wooding has become the latest singer on Britain's Got Talent 2016 to be in a chance of winning the show.

We're now five weeks into the show and another singer stole the episode in the latest round of Britain’s Got Talent auditions on Saturday.

Rachael, a musical theatre singer, wowed the judges with her flawless performance of With You from Ghost The Musical and went straight into the betting as a threatening 5/1 shot to win.

Singers now dominate the odds with Ant and Dec's golden buzzer Jasmine Elcock at 4/1 and previous favourite, Amanda Holden's golden buzzer act, Beau Dermott at 5/1 alongside newcomer Rachael.

However the current favourite is not actually a singer, with unique dance group Another Kind of Blue currently just ahead of all the vocalists at 7/2.

Back to Saturday night and Stormtrooper dancers, Boogie Storm also impressed the judges, Simon Cowell in particular as he pressed the Golden Buzzer for the dance group. Boogie Storm join fellow Golden Buzzer act 100 Voices Of Gospel at 10/1.

Foot puppeteer, Anna Kling, joined the list of hopefuls into the next round with her unique act and can be backed at 25/1 along with singers The Garnett Family.

The other acts that featured aren't seen as potential contenders this year: Bookies Boylesports price The Mimic Men at 40/1 and dancers Tumar KR 50/1 shots.

The Deep Space Deviants and magic act Scott and Muriel are both available at 100/1 while Vodik and his dancing Polar Bear are 150/1 to win.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports said: “Singers are dominating the Britain’s Got Talent betting and Rachael Wooding has slotted in amongst the firm contenders for the title at 5/1 after her flawless performance on Saturday.”

She added: “The Golden Buzzer acts are a mixed bag at present with Ant and Dec’s act Jasmine Elcock the strongest of the lot at 4/1 and David Walliams’ singing duo Ian and Anne Marshall the outsiders at 100/1.”

Britain's Got Talent 2016 continues Saturday night on ITV.

The live shows will start later this month.
