Celebrity X Factor 2019 Betting and Odds Preview
The newest edition of the X Factor will definitely be one to watch as it will feature famous faces trying to win that lucrative record deal. Celebrity X Factor 2019 premieres on 12 October 2019 on ITV and it features a very famous trio of judges. Simon Cowell will spearhead the main decision-makers and Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh will judge alongside him. Dermot O’Leary will be the one presenting the show.
The list of participants in the show has never been more illustrious and it features film stars, influencers, models, professional dancers, soap opera stars and social media personalities. This means that the show will be as varied as ever and will definitely be one of the most competitive ones we have ever seen.
Bookmakers such as Coral and Ladbrokes simply relish non-sports competition such as these and they have readily offered some enticing odds for the both the main favourites and the aspiring underdogs of Celebrity X Factor 2019.
Will Megan McKenna Justify the Favourite Tag?
Megan McKenna first came to prominence when she reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. Back then she was part of the duo Harmony and appeared in semi-final 3 performing Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. McKenna impressed Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden, but Simon Cowell was more critical of what he saw as a Spice Girls – wannabe performance.
This meant that Megan’s big singing break had to wait for a while longer and she will be hoping that this year’s edition of the Celebrity X Factor will be her second big break. She said that she sees this opportunity as the biggest one she has ever had and that she will give her best to win it.
When you consider just how energetic her performances used to be in the past, there is no arguing that Megan McKenna will be a force to be reckoned with in Celebrity X Factor 2019. As a result, bookmakers are looking at the former There’s Something About Megan star to light up the show when she shows off her singing skills once again.
Bookmakers such as Ladbrokes and Coral give Megan McKenna the favourite tag by assigning odds of 5/1 and it will be up to her to justify them. She is now much more mature than she was 10 years ago and big things should be expected of her.
Can Try Star Power Through to the Win?
If the winners of Celebrity X Factor were decided solely on how powerful the contestants were, then Try Star would definitely win by a land slide. Rugby stars Ben Foden, Thom Evans and Levi Davis can take any match by the scruff of the neck and win it all by themselves, but the question on everyone’s minds is whether they are able to do that off the pitch too.
Thom Evans played for Scotland, Davis was part of the England under-18 and under-19 squads while Foden plays for Rugby United New York and has some England appearances to boot. This means that the trio of athletes certainly know what it takes to win a tightly contested competition and they will try to use their experience to their advantage.
Thom is the most experienced of the three singing-wise as he was part of a back-up band called Twen2y4se7en which supported Peter Andre and Westlife. He will definitely be the leading figure in the trio and that experience might prove invaluable when trying to impress the judges.
This is why Try Star are very strong contenders to win Celebrity X Factor 2019 and bookmakers give them identical odds as the main favourite Megan McKenna. Backing Try Star comes with odds of 5/1 at both Ladbrokes and Coral.
Jonny Labey is the One to Watch
Many sources close to the people working around Celebrity X Factor say that if there is someone who is outside of the top two favourites with a chance to win it, then it is Jonny Labey. Jonny certainly has many talents and viewers were able to see just how good he was when he appeared in Dance Dance Dance two years ago.
He won ITV’s popular show back then, but it seems like that did not quench his thirst for testing himself against the best and his newest appearance in Celebrity X Factor is a testament to this.
The former EastEnders actor also launched a cabaret night in London’s West End, only reaffirming the notion that he is a man with a lot to offer. What’s more, the actor known for playing Paul Coker, has many thousands of followers on Instagram and definitely has that aura of a person destined for stardom.
This is why bookmakers look so highly on his prospects for winning the Celebrity X Factor 2019. He is trailing by the main favourites by the smallest of margins and is given odds of 6/1 by both Ladbrokes and Coral.
Can Kevin McHale Utilize his Friendship with Judge Nicole Scherzinger?
Kevin McHale is famous for playing Artie Abrams in Glee. He excelled in that show and won rave reviews by both critics and the public. However, he will try to prove himself all over again when he appears in this year’s edition of Celebrity X Factor 2019.
Kevin is part of an elite group of performers who are considered as the main favourites to win the competition and in addition to his talents, he has one more thing going for him. The actor and singer opened for the Pussycat Dolls in 2007 and that means that he knows Nicole Sherzinger better than the other competitors on the show.
Being a friend with one of the judges never hurt anyone, and Kevin will definitely fancy his chances when appearing in front of a familiar face. Bookmakers have McHale as a rather strong candidate for the victory and assign him odds of 6/1. Both Ladbrokes and Coral feel that the former Glee star has all it takes to make it on the big stage and those odds are a sign of that.
Can Max and Harvey Influence the Judges?
Max and Harvey are famous influencers who rose to fame in 2016 when they became a worldwide hit on the app musical.ly. We talked about how Jonny Labey is an influential online figure who has more than 6,000 followers, but Max and Harvey put Jonny’s social media game to shame. This is because the duo has close to six million followers on the channel and they are real idols for teenagers worldwide.
The twin brothers, who are still only 16, are the stars of their own CBBC show My Life: Max& Harvey. Their rise to fame has certainly been one for the school books as they took all the right steps at all the right times. This means that even though the brothers are still only teenagers, they are quite astute decision-makers too. At such a young age that can only serve to their advantage.
This is why bookmakers look at the young talents as one of the five main favourites to win the Celebrity X Factor and betting operators such as Ladbrokes and Coral give Max and Harvey odds of 6/1.
