X Factor 2017: Rak-Su are the new favourites to win

Simon and the Groups category. Rak-Su.

Rak-Su have overtaken Grace Davies as the current favourites to win The X Factor 2017.

Saturday and Sunday saw the second weekend of live shows on The X Factor 2017 with a new format.

The contestants this year are performing in separate nights in their categories and on Sunday evening the Overs and Girls were in the spotlight.

And it was Tracy Leanne Jefford Dean who was latest to be voted off the show, following in the footsteps of Leon Mallet who was eliminated on Saturday night following the Boys and Groups' performances.

Meabwhile, Rak-Su and Kevin Davy White were revealed as the latest two acts to top the public vote.

The pair went head to head in a new 'prize fight' which saw Kevin win time in the studio with a top record producer.

Following the latest live performances, there's been a shuffle in the odds.

After two weeks topping their vote, Rak-Su now find themselves as the 5/4 favourites to land the spoils for Simon Cowell, which leaves long-term front runner Grace to settle for second spot and odds of 7/4.

Thereafter, the bookies offer double figure prices about a winner coming from Kevin (12/1), Holly Tandy (16/1) or Lloyd Macey (20/1).

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "It's a clear two-horse race to the final, and it would be a huge surprise to see anyone other than Rak-Su or Grace crowned as the 2017 champion."

The X Factor goes LIVE on Saturday on ITV with the next weekend of live shows.

The X Factor will be live on Saturday at 8:10PM with the performances and return Sunday at 7:30PM with the third weekend of live singing.
