Last weekend saw us say goodbye to Sami Brooks, who lost out in her sing off against wacky Kitty Brucknell. Frankie Cocozza escaped this week yet again but may be up against it this week, openly admitting that he is the weakest singer left in the contest.
Kitty Brucknell was rather surprisingly in the bottom two last week, giving her best performance so far with her rendition of Live and Let Die. This now confirms that the public have just not warmed to her, and it will just be a matter of time before she is shown the door. Her price for elimination this weekend is 11/2 with Skybet which will attract lots of bets.
Frankie Cocozza appears to be on borrowed time too. Although never having the strongest voice, his confidence and stage presence appears to be decreasing weekly. There is not much he can do to change the fact that he is now the favourite to be eliminated this Sunday, currently priced at Evens with Skybet.
Others 40/1 and above
Girl group Rhythmix are 11/2 with Skybet to be ousted on Sunday, but with the theme this weekend being ‘Fright Night’ we can imagine the girls putting on a good show.
Sophie Habibis may have to worry this week. She seems to lack a bit in personality and may struggle to pull off a theme which needs plenty of stage command. Available to back at 6/1 with Skybet it may be worth having a few shillings on.
All other acts appear to be safe this week on first glance, providing their performances do not fall apart on stage. Janet Devlin and The Risk are almost guaranteed to make the final, and Misha is not far behind them, again provided her ego does not inflate too much.
However the entertainment continues, and the ‘Fright Night’ theme should provide plenty of it.
