After wowing the judges with his emotional rendition of Angels the bookies have now cut his odds to 13/8, making him the joint favourite with Ella (13/8) for the first time this series.

James Arthur's odds have also been cut to 7/2 along with Christopher's who is now a 14/1 shot having been quoted at 33/1 less than a week ago.c

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "All the momentum is with Jahmene, he's been closing in on Ella for weeks now and it wouldn't surprise us if he becomes the clear favourite next Saturday."
