The Voice UK: Did Paloma Faith give away her strongest act?

The Voice

Paloma Faith may have given away her strongest contender on The Voice UK with Kevin Simm now a strong favourite to win.

Confirmed for the live shows, Kevin was stolen by Ricky Wilson in the battles after Paloma sent him home.

He's now reclaimed his spot at the head of the betting as Team Ricky take over the betting with both Jolan and Chloe Castro shorteingn into the top four, which also features Cody Frost of Team Boy George.

It could be a case of second time lucky for Jolan, who first auditioned in 2014, as he is cut once again and is now 11/2 from 6/1 following his interesting take on INXS’ Never Tear Us Apart.

Chloe Castro blew everyone away with her rendition of Sia’s Alive and has been thrust firmly into the running for the title after shortening into 13/2 from 10/1.

Leading the charge for Team Paloma is Jordan Gray, who originally didn’t make it past the blind auditions. Jordan has been the biggest mover in the betting having been installed at 40/1 but shortening drastically to 10/1 last week and cut once again to 8/1 after her knockout performance.

Beth Morris also made it through the live shows and is now a 10/1 shot from 12/1 with Heather Cameron-Hayes making up the rest of Team Paloma, however she is currently at 25/1 outsider.

Aoife Heffron from BoyleSports commented: “Kevin Simm is back as the favourite to win having been battling it out with Cody Frost in the betting. Team Ricky is most certainly the team to beat at the moment with all three featuring at the top of the betting.”

She added: “Jordan Gray continues to pave her way as possibly one of the biggest underdogs of all time and as she heads for the live shows Team Paloma punters have been showing their support, backing her into 8/1 from 10/1.”

The Voice UK continues this SUNDAY night on BBC One as Will.i.am and Boy George pick their finalists.
