Britain's Got Talent - Jonathan and Charlotte

Britain's Got Talent 2012 singing sensation Jonathan Antoine and pal Charlotte Jaconelli remain the strong favourites to win the show this year.

The Pop Opera duo wowed the judges and audiences on the first audition show of the new series, and remain the 7/2 favourites to make it all the way to the final in May.

Boygroup The Mend meanwhile have quickly become the second favourites, after their performance of Otis Reading classic Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay won them a place in the next round on Saturday.

"Week two was again impressive but we still think Simon has shown his hand early and Jonathan & Charlotte are the act to beat,” said William Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.

Meanwhile the bookies have have cut the price of Ryan O’Shaughnessy winning Britain’s Got Talent from 12/1 to 10/1 and he is 25/1 to go on and win the show & the heart of the girl he wrote the song for.

Ryan faces stiff competition with the Twist & Pulse Dance Company who are 5/1 after auditioning at the weekend.

“Hundreds of thousands of young ladies went to bed wishing that Ryan had written the song for them and we believe he is a contender to win both the competition & the mystery ladies heart,” the spokesperson added.

Britain's Got Talent 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1.
