Matt Terry sure to win X Factor? Singer is 'following Louisa Johnson's winning path'


It looks like the battle for The X Factor 2016 title may already be over.

Matt Terry is the current favourite to win the series out of the ten remaining acts.

Currently at odds of 11/10 with Ladbrokes, Matt seems to be following Louisa Johnson's winning path.

The bookies report this week that Bromley-born Matt has seen his odds slashed following the second week of live shows.

Just like Louisa last year, from the minute Matt’s first audition was aired, he’s headed the market to win the show.

And while several other contestants have variously challenged for the second-favourite spot, none of them have yet to come close to Nicole Scherzinger’s top boy.

Similarly to Matt, last year’s champ’s odds fell to 11/10 after just two weeks of live performances.

We all know what happened come the final night back in 2015 - will history repeat itself this year?

Of course it's a long way to go yet and there are nine other acts hoping to prove an upset.

Boy band trio 5 After Midnight, at 3/1, currently present Matt's nearest rivals for the win, but how will they handle Divas week?

And what about Honey G?

So-called novelty acts don't tend to last the distance on The X Factor but can she become the first one ever to make the final?

Meanwhile, looking ahead to the next results, bookies reckon Ryan Lawrie is a likely lad to be in the danger zone.

He was in the bottom three last Sunday but avoided the sing-off thanks to the new life line vote.
