The X Factor on Britain’s Got Talent

Flakefeet Primary School Choir is now 8/1 favourite for Britain’s Got Talent after David Walliams gave them the golden buzzer (which sends an act straight through to the semi-finals) in episode one.

A second week of the ITV hit show has seen yet more names added to the betting for the 13th series.

Another golden buzzer act (this time by Simon Cowell), comedian Kojo Anim, entered the market as second favourite at 10/1.

Closely behind him is Jonathan Goodwin at 16/1. He performed a controversial and daring act as he set himself on fire while escaping from a straitjacket hung upside-down. But there's no chance a burning escape artist will be deemed an appropriate candidate for the Royal Variety Performance – a ‘prize’ that the winner of the series will receive – so he's a lay.

And, finally, there's the masked magician, ‘X’, who managed to freak the judges and receive a standing ovation. The mystery performer is a standout 28/1 with Bet365. At that price, one to consider.
