Following this morning's claims that Kitty Brucknell has been threatening to leave The X Factor over claims of bullying, bookies have lashed the price of the wacky singer walking out of the programme.
William Hill have slashed the price of Kitty leaving the show of her own volition from 50/1 to 8/1.
“We have slashed the odds of Kitty voluntarily leaving the show as her behaviour is becoming even more erratic than it has previously been. The pressure that comes from being on the show is intense and it might just be too much for Kitty,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
Hills reckon that Tulisa will be the unlucky mentor this week and she is offered at 8/11 to lose an act. Louis is 13/8 to shed an act, while Gary and Kelly are 8/1 and 12/1 respectively. The two favourites to get the boot this weekend are Nu Vibe at 13/8 and Rythmix at 7/2.
Last week’s X-Factor show peaked at 12.3 million viewers during the ‘shock’ quadruple elimination and Hills go 5/6 that less than 12.5 million tune in this weekend.
Janet Devlin is the 5/2 favourite to win the show, followed by Misha Bryan at 7/2 and The Risk at 5/1.
