The X Factor 2018’s latest theme and guest stars have been revealed – but who’s at risk of going out next?

The X Factor’s live shows continued last weekend with a ‘Movies’ theme.

Two more contestants got the boot in the latest X Factor 2018 results as Misunderstood and Giovanni Spano were both eliminated. Plus, there were guest performances from Olly Murs and Michael Buble.

It starts all over again on Saturday night with a brand new theme, and it’s another X Factor classic ‘Big Band’ week, as X Factor enjoys a night at the proms.

Currently a total of 8 contestants are left in the competition.

Making up Robbie’s groups are just duo Acacia and Aaliyah, while the Girls’ category mentored by Simon Cowell is made up of Bella Penfold, Scarlett Lee, and Shan Ako.

In the Boys category, mentored by Louis Tomlinson, are Anthony Russell, Brendan Murray and Dalton Andre Harris. Ayda Williams leads The Overs, now made up of just Danny Tetley.

Acacia and Aaliyah may have narrowly escaped the axe on Sunday after facing the sing-off against Giovanni Spano, who was sent home, but it doesn’t mean they are in the clear this weekend. The duo are tipped to make their exit this week as 6/4 favourites.

Also in danger is Galway native Brendan Murray who is currently the 5/2 second favourite to fall victim to the public vote on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Dalton Harris is the runaway favourite to win the X Factor after yet another sensational performance saw his odds slashed further as the one to beat.

Scarlet Lee also impressed with her take on ‘I’ll Never Love Again’ from the film A Star Is Born, which saw her move into second favouritism at 9/2 after a drastic cut from 6/1 as a result.

Aoife Heffron, Spokesperson for bookmakers BoyleSports said ahead of Saturday’s show: “Dalton Harris is in a league of his own and has everyone waiting for his next performance as he continues to stun with his vocals each week.

“It’s not surprising punters are in a frenzy to get behind him to win and he’s now odds on at 4/6 as a result of that strong support.”

She added: “Brendan Murray avoided the axe once before but he’s back in danger according to his 5/2 second favourite odds in the elimination betting, as the competition heats up and his judges’ comments remain mixed.”

Alongside the latest live performances from the acts, this week there will be guest performances from Cheryl and Tom Walker.

The X Factor airs on ITV this Saturday at 8:10PM and continues with the fifth results show at 8PM on the Sunday.
