Kelly Rowland’s X Factor odds slashed to remain judge
KELLY ROWLAND’S odds of returning to the X Factor judging panel have been slashed, according to Ladbrokes.
Reports that the judging line up is still a long way off being finalised see Rowland’s odds of taking part cut to just 2/1 (from 10/1).
Gary Barlow looks a certainty to judge again at 1/20 while Britney Spears is also the subject of a bizarre punt for the job as her odds tumble from 50/1 to 10/1.
Engelbert Humperdinck also enters the reckoning at 14/1 following his Eurovision nomination.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The latest odds suggest the race for the fourth spot is heating up. Punters are latching onto all sorts of names with Kelly the latest tip.”
