XFactor 2013 finalists: Shelley Smith favourite for first elimination

Shelley Smith is the favourite contestant to be kicked out of X Factor this weekend according to Ladbrokes.

With the live shows less than a week away it's bad news for the 'Diva from Devon' as Shelly finds herself chalked up as the early 5/2 favourite to be first to leave. Lorna Simpson, another one of Sharon's acts, is next in the betting at 3/1.

Tamera Foster is already being heavily backed to win the show at 5/2, along with Nicholas McDonald (4/1) and Hannah Barrett (6/1), but unfortunately the same can't be said for 20/1 shot Sam Callahan, who has received only 14 wagers on his chances of victory.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "There hasn't been an overs winner since Steve Brookstein, and the odds suggest there won't be one this year either. Sam is Sharon's only hope of winning but it's going to be a tough ask to steal the crown away from Tamera."
