Welshman Andy Williams is the hot favourite to be eliiminated from The X Factor on Saturday night.

The 22-year-old has odds of 15-8, according to bookmakers Paddy Power. Alisha Bennett, who escaped the bottom two for the first time on last week’s show, is a distant second favourite at 2-1, followed by Same Difference.

And Hope’s odds have shortened considerably following last week’s shock result, in which they landed in the bottom two with boy band Futureproof.

The girl group, who were saved by the judges, are now 6-1 for the chop.

Meanwhile, Rhydian is the new favourite to win the series. The opera-singing Welshman, who started as an outsider, is now 6-4 ahead of Niki Evans at 2-1.

Saturday’s show will see the eight remaining acts tackling hits of the 21st Century. Andy will be performing Snow Patrol’s Chasing Cars while Rhydian will take on the Westlife hit You Raise Me Up.

Hope will be hoping to stay on the show with their rendition of Amy Winehouse’ Back To Black, while Same Difference will deliver their version of Scissor Sisters’ chart-topper I Don’t Feel Like Dancing.
