X Factor 2016 winner: Matt Terry is new favourite in closest final ever


Matt Terry has overtaken Saara Aalto as the favourite to win The X Factor 2016 this weekend.

The X Factor 2016 winner is one step closer to being revealed after Sunday's first final results.

5 After Midnight finished bottom of the vote tonight, leaving the competition in third place.

Saara and Matt will now go forward to Sunday night's final live show where one of them will WIN the series.

The pair will perform their favourite song of the past ten weeks and their potential winner's track before lines close for good.

All of the votes from Saturday will carry over and each app voter has another five free votes to use.

Matt had been the favourite to win since the auditions up until a couple of weeks ago when Saara took charge, but following Saturday's show Matt is back on top.

However it looks like we could be on course for the closest X Factor final ever with the pair almost impossible to split in the latest odds.
