A William Hill punter in Somerset has placed a £1000 wager on Marlon McKenzie to win this year’s X-Factor at a price of 20/1. He stands to win £20,000 should Marlon be successful in the show. Cher Lloyd has been cut in the betting from 3/1 to 5/2. Liam Payne, New Direction and Aidan Grimshaw are all joint second favourites to win the show.
“Marlon sang a brilliant version of Ain’t No Sunshine and we are currently very worried that he may well go on to win the show,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
