X Factor: Get ready to say goodbye to Stereo Kicks

| 29.11.2014

All right lads, you’ve had your fun and no doubt you’ll enjoy a little bit of fame once your X Factor journey ends.

But now it’s probably about time you moved on.

There’s no doubt that eight-piece boyband Stereo Kicks have enjoyed a magical trip in this year’s competition.

But come the end of ‘Jukebox Week’ it’ll be time to step aside and let the final four fight it out.

Ladbrokes are offering odds of 2/1 for Louis Walsh’s group to be the 12th act face the axe with Lauren Platt now the favourite to go. 

Since we’re getting a bit light on numbers, here’s a quick rundown of all of the remaining contestants and their chances of being eliminated.

Lauren Platt – 6/4 to be eliminated

Poor Lauren has undeservedly fallen out of favour with bookmakers in recent weeks.

It wouldn’t be too much of a shock to see the 17-year-old have to face a sing-off, with the 8/13 on her to be in the bottom two offering fairly decent value.

But if there’s any justice it will be her inferior rivals leaving the stage for the last time.

Stereo Kicks – 2/1

We’ve had enough of them, have you?

Louis’ boys will be taking on Snow Patrol’s ‘Run’ as one of their selections this week but will they nail it?

Producers seem intent on keeping them in the competition but hopefully the good old British public see through all of that nonsense and give them the boot.

Andrea Faustini – 7/2

Keeping the faith with Andrea?

Given his position in the bottom two there could be some value in backing the Italian singer to leave.

That could be especially true if he fails to produce anything drastically different.

Given that one of his song choices is Mariah Carey smash hit ‘Hero’ it looks like we’ll get more of the same.

Ben Haenow – 6/1

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again.

What’s to get about this guy?

Is it the feted ‘rock’ voice that’s had you all piling into Ben as the competition has progressed?

Whatever the reasons, the 29-year-old van driver is now hugely popular and
shouldn’t be under too much threat.

Fleur East – 16/1

Wowzers. You’d have to be crazy to bet on Fleur leaving at this stage.

Even Laddies ambassador Chris Kamara is backing the sassy Londoner.

Kammy can probably be assured that his 10/1 wager is looking pretty good right now.
