Gary Barlow takes charge of the Over 28s with Kye Sones (8/1) and Carolynne Poole (9/1) real contenders for the Take That front man who is 11/4 to be the winning manager. Louis Walsh is even money to be the first manager to lose all their acts as he takes charge of the groups. GMD3 (14/1), newly formed Union J (25/1) and MK1 (33/1) are his front runners for the title.
