X Factor 2013 judges annoyed by Simon Cowell's Tamera Foster favourtism

X Factor 2013 judge Sharon Osbourne is reportedly frustrated with Simon Cowell.

It's all over the X Factor boss' apparent favourtism of Tamera Foster, over Sharon's own act Sam Bailey.

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, SyCo boss Simon is sure to sign 16-year-old Tamera whatever happens in the final, if she even makes it that far.

But the alleged favouring of Tamera isn't pleasing Sharon.

“She’s so frustrated and cross with Simon. She knows he doesn’t want Sam to win. Sharon reckons he thinks she’s too old to be marketable," a source told the tabloid today. "It’s so annoying for Sharon.”

A supposed pal of Simon's added to the publication: “Tamera is undoubtedly his favourite. He thinks she has got it all and is seriously considering giving her a recording contract.”

While she may be the favourite with Simon, Tamera isn't doing so well with viewers.

The teenager has already been in the bottom two once and bookies are now tipping her to be in the danger zone again this evening.

Rough Copy are the 5/4 favourites to be axed from the X-Factor this weekend with William Hill but it is incredibly close in the betting for elimination: Tamera Foster is the 15/8 second favourite with Nicholas McDonald 4/1.

The X Factor 2013 results air tonight from 8PM on ITV, with performances from James Arhtur and Rebecca Ferguson.
