We could be in for another week of Alexandra Burke on The X Factor this Saturday as an ill Kelly Rowland remains in LA. The US star was spotted out and about in the States yesterday as her remaining acts struggled for a second week without her.
With Sophie eliminated on Sunday night, Misha B being in the bottom two and Janet Devlin blasted for being both predictable and the "worst performer" of the night by the judges, it's not been a good few days for the girls' category.
And with Kelly still absent it's set to be another tough week ahead for Misha and Janet.
Now bookies reckon Kelly may still be too ill to return to the show by Saturday, with William Hill slashing the price of Kelly missing a second week from 8/1 to 6/4, while it is 33/1 that Simon sacks her!
“Kelly sounded like she was at death’s door the other night when she was speaking on the phone and she may well be advised to stay away for another week,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “That said, she might already have sealed her fate.”
The news that Kelly could be on her way out has also sparked rumours of possible replacements.
Bookies are currently offering 2/1 for a return of Cheryl Cole; 4/1 for Katy Perry to join the panel and shockingly short olds of 5/1 that Alexandra Burke could become a permanent replacement for Kelly!
Speaking at the weekend however, Kelly insisted she was getting rest and was determined to be back for Saturday's show.
