Magician Richard Jones was crowned the Britain’s Got Talent champion on Saturday evening, but what will come of the runners up?
Bookies BoyleSports has come up with some special markets to see if any of the runners up might capitalise from their appearance on the popular talent show.
Despite finishing in fifth place, 12-year-old singer Beau Dermott is expected to be the most successful as she is Even money to get a contract with musical mogul Andrew Lloyd Webber. Even before the final it was reported that the youngster was already being lined up for a record deal.
Meanwhile, Wayne Woodward missed out on the BGT title by the skin of his teeth, but at 11/4 he could be set for a duet with Michael Bublè to ease the pain of defeat. Swing singer Wayne is also on offer at 25/1 to claim the number one spot in the charts should he release a single this year.
Another singer expected to do well off the back of their final appearance is Jasmine Elcock, who placed fourth in Saturday’s final. The young singer is 8/1 to release a debut single before the end of the year.
Dare devil Alex Magala may have finished in ninth place, but he had his supporters who may tune in if he got his own TV show, which is a 16/1 shot.
Finally Trip Hazard and Lucy failed to make it in the top three suggesting that they are unfortunately not set for Ashley and Pudsey stardom, which is further backed by their 100/1 price to get their own movie.
Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports said: “Beau Dermott was one of the favourites to win Britain’s Got Talent on Saturday, as the market continued to fluctuate throughout the final, however she shockingly finished in fifth place. We suspect it won’t be the last we see of aspiring West End star Beau making it Even money that Andrew Lloyd Webber will be in touch very soon.”
She added: “Wayne Woodward lost out to Richard Jones, with reports that there was just 2% between them in the votes. The charismatic swing singer undoubtedly will have a single in the works, but at 11/4 it suggests a very famous duet with none other than Michael Bublè could happen, not a bad way to kick start his career.”
