X Factor 2016: Ryan Lawrie and Emily Middlemas for the sing off?


Ryan Lawrie is the favourite to leave The X Factor 2016 this weekend.

But could he end up in the sing-off with Emily Middlemas?

We’re now just four weeks away from finding out which hopeful will be crowned the winner of X Factor 2016 with six becoming five this weekend.

And if the latest odds are anything to go by, this may well be the end of the road for Ryan, finally.


The 20-year-old has been in the danger zone four times now but was was controversially saved at the last minute on Sunday after Sharon Osbourne opted to take the vote to Deadlock.

But he may well have used up all of his lives as we head into the final stages of the competition.

Saara Alto looks likely to end up in the sing off with Ryan and that’s bad news for the Scot, as he’s up against a woman who has found herself in three sing-offs to date, sailing through each time.

However Emily is also at risk following a string of slow songs and bookmakers suggest she could find herself in the bottom two for the first time, potentially facing boyfriend Ryan.

Meanwhile, Ladbrokes report that there’s an outside chance of Honey G being eliminated at 8/1. But, as has so often been the case this series, the odds suggest she has more chance of winning the whole thing than going home this weekend.


And if you think there could be an upset on the cards, the bookmakers are offering 50/1 for Matt to go, while it’s 12/1 for Emily’s journey to come to an end and 20s for Louis Walsh’s final act, 5 After Midnight, are sent packing.

A quick look at the outright market reveals the last remaining group on the show are closing in on long-time favourite Matt, as they’re now the clear second-favourites at 4/1 behind Honey G and Emily at 6s respectively.

The X Factor 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
