X Factor 2012: Jahmene Douglas is odds on favourite to win

The X Factor 2012 Week 5 - Jahmene Douglas

Jahmene Douglas has become the favourite to win the X Factor 2012.

The 21-year-old is one of only two acts to have never been in the bottom two so far this series.

Five finalists remain and this weekend will see another exit the competition ahead of next month's big final in Manchester.

Jahmene is the 4/5 favourite to win the show, with James Arthur 2/1, Christopher Maloney is 7/1, Rylan Clark 16/1 and Union J 14/1.

Last weekend saw that no one is safe, and bookies are even offering odds that Chris and Rylan are the last two acts standing.

The X Factor has been a show of controversy this year and William Hill are accepting bets at 25/1 that first and second place are filled by Christopher Maloney and Rylan Clark, the once no hopers in the competition seem to be increasingly likely to cause an upset.

“The way the British public seem to be voting at the moment the 25/1 to see Rylan and Christopher as the last two standing seems to be a real possibility,” said.

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday on ITV1 and ITV1HD, with the final five acts sing two tracks each with Abba and Motown themes.

Sunday's results show will see one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna, Tulisa and Bruno Mars.
