Vicky Pattison’s odds slashed to host the X Factor

| 22.02.2016

Bookmaker Coral has slashed the odds on Geordie Shore personality Vicky Pattison taking over from Caroline Flack and Olly Murs as the next X Factor presenter, following a flurry of bets this morning. Coral reacted to the gamble by shortening her odds to 14-1 from 33-1 to get the job.

However, the firm believe Dermot O’Leary is the most likely candidate to get his job back, making him the 2-1 favourite, while Rylan Clark is also in the running at 3-1. The firm reckon that the show will return to using just one presenter, making it odds-on at 8-11, while it’s even money that a duo host the 2016 series.

With Nick Grimshaw, Caroline Flack, and Olly Murs, no longer part of the show, Coral go 12-1 that the X Factor doesn’t return for another series.

“Vicky Pattison is a popular figure and some punters believe she could be the new face of the X Factor, but the odds are still very much in favour of Dermot O’Leary returning to his old job,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.

2-1 Dermot O’Leary, 3-1 Rylan Clark, 4-1 Emma Willis, 6-1 Rochelle Humes, 8-1 Marvin Humes, 10-1 Melvin Odoom, 12-1 Stephen Mulhern, 14-1 Vicky Pattison, 16-1 Mel B, 20-1 Ben Shephard, 25-1 Jameela Jamil, 25-1 Davina McCall, 33-1 Professor Green, 50-1 Ant and Dec, 100-1 Gary Barlow
