X Factor 2012 final results: Christopher Maloney tipped to exit tonight

Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

Christopher Maloney is tipped leave in tonight's X Factor 2012 final.

This evening will see the final trio performing a new song and a duet with their mentors.

It'll ultimately result in one of the three being booted out of the competition in third place, leaving the other two to fight it out tomorrow night.

Bookies William Hill believe this weekend's X Factor final is one of the closest in the history of the programme and this year is the first time there has not been an odds-on favourite in the build up to the Final weekend.

Jahmene is currently the 6/5 favourite with William Hill, with James Arthur 5/4 and Christopher Maloney the only mover this week cut from 4/1 to 10/3.

“It is difficult to pick the winner, we have a load of bets on Jahmene and James from earlier in the series and this week it has all been about Christopher. The odds suggest that whoever wins will struggle to land the Xmas No.1!” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Unfortunately for Chris, he's the favourite to finish the competition in third place this evening, but the odds have been wrong before.
