X Factor’s Rylan Clark has been tipped to take part in Eurovision next year!
Bookies are taking bets that the 23-year-old from Essex will be representing the UK in next year’s competition, following in the steps of Jedward.
Bookmakers are also taking bets on a Rylan and Gary Barlow duet if the wacky performer gets through to next month’s Manchester final.
Rylan has been stressing his desire to duet with Gary Barlow if he were to make the X Factor final and William Hill are offering 50/1 that he performs ‘Rylan Style’ with the Take That star at the final.
It is 10/1 that ‘Rylan Style’ tops the charts and 16/1 that the flamboyant Essex boy represents the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest 2013.
Christopher Maloney left Twitter yesterday after hoards of abuse from followers on the Social Networking site. Despite this he is 7/1 to win the show and odds on to make the final at 4/6. Jahmene Douglas is the 4/5 favourite to win with James Arthur 2/1.
“Rylan has really turned the public opinion of him since the live shows started, a number one record may not be far off and we are hearing chat that a Eurovision stint is a possibility,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.
Jahmene Douglas remains the favourite to win the show, ahead of James Arthur following his bottom two placing last weekend.
Christopher Maloney looks set to join the pair in the final, with Union J and Rylan at risk at the next eliminations.
X Factor 2012 Winner odds: 4/5 Jahmene Douglas, 2/1 James Arthur, 7/1 Christopher Maloney, 12/1 Union J, 16/1 Rylan Clark
