X Factor 2012 results: James Arthur backed to win by TellyMix readers

James Arthur (X Factor 2012)

James Arthur continues to be TellyMix readers' favourite to win the X Factor in tonight's final.

Christopher Maloney finished in third place on last night's XFactor 2012 results, leaving James and Jahmene Douglas to go head to head on tonight's final.

TellyMix readers (for once!) correctly predicted the result, and now you're all right behind James.

The 24-year-old has a significant lead going in to tonight's show, with over 15,000 having voted in the poll.

Meanwhile, bookies William Hill were cheering the departure of Christopher after the Liverpudlian was backed in from 100/1 all the way in to 7/2 to win the show.

“Christopher was not well liked by the hardcore X-Factor fans, but there were obviously people voting for him and these people must have been backing him as well because he could have cost the industry a fortune,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

Despite Christopher’s departure, it was not all cheer as James Arthur is now the 4/9 favourite to win and should he win, he will still cost Britain’s biggest bookmaker a sizeable sum.
