X Factor 2011: Sophie Habibis the one to beat, says Craig Colton

Having beaten the bookies odds and survived last night's shock quadruple eviction, Sophie Habibis has been tipped as the one to beat by fellow contestant Craig Colton. Speaking to The People, Craig said the London bar maid was the biggest competition in the show.

Last night the judges sent home James Michael, 2 Shoes, Jonjo and Amelia Lily in a twist which meant the weakest act in each category was eliminated.

Speaking about the remaining finalists, Craig said: “She is the one to beat.”

The 22-year-old former biscuit factory worker also took the chance to gush about his mentor, if only for keeping him in the show.

“Gary isn’t just a mentor, he’s a very, very good friend now. He is absolutely perfect," Craig said. “I’ve been going to the gym three and four times a week, it’s giving me that bit more of a kick for the live shows. I’m so excited. All the outfits fit really well.”
