X Factor 2016: Someone just bet £10,000 on Saara Aalto winning


One X Factor fan has bet £10,000 on Saara Aalto winning this year's show.

Saara is surging ahead as the favourite to be crowned as the winner of X Factor this weekend with bookmakers Ladbrokes.

The Finnish popstar has continued to see bets on her pour in, which includes a £10,000 wager placed on Wednesday evening in one of the firm's London shops, seeing her odds of glory cut again into just 8/15.

Long-term front runner Matt Terry is now left to occupy second spot at 5/2, leaving 5 After Midnight as the outsiders of the pack at 11/2.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "Saara's coming into her stride just at the right time, and as we enter the final few days punters reckon she's going to be crowned as the 2016 winner."

Having been in the sing-off for the first two weeks of the competition, Saara's chances in the competition originally looked doomed.

Now her history making comeback could well end in victory.

"How did that happen?!" Saara said of being made the favourite to win this week. "I'm excited for the final but I'm not nervous.

"I want people to vote for me because I really want to win!"
