Rachael Wooding on Britain's Got Talent

Britain's Got Talent is back this weekend and singers are being tipped to dominate.

Britain’s Got Talent returns on Saturday night and BoyleSports are already predicting what form of talent might take the top prize this year.

Singers have had great success on the show with a total of three winning it over the ten series, and although it's been three years now since the last musical act triumphed, a singer is tipped to win this year at odds of 4/5.

Dance acts also always go down a treat with the BGT audience and are the second favourites to steal the show this year, however at the much bigger price of 3/1.

Another animal act to win is next at 8/1, whilst a magician to win it for back to back years, with Richard Jones having won it last year, priced at 12/1

It’s 18/1 an instrumental act can win with 20/1 on offer for an comedian to finally take the crown for the first time.

Outsiders in the betting include shadow theatre groups (40/1), impressionists (50/1), jugglers (100/1), and strippers (250/1).

Aoife Heffron, Spokeswoman for BoyleSports commented: “Britain’s Got Talent is back at the weekend where we can expected to see the weird and wonderful acts audition for a chance to take that all important crown.”

She added “At present singers are the red hot favourite act to win this year at 4/5 with dancers next at 3/1, however with magicians and animal acts winning the past two years, there has already been support for those type of acts to win.”
