Missing People Choir Backed Into BGT Favourites

The second round of Britain’s Got Talent auditions may have seen seven new hopefuls progress to the next round, but it is Missing People Choir that are stealing the show so far as they are now the new favourites to win.

The choir went straight into the betting as the 5/1 second favourites following their audition, but punters have come out in force to show their support and have backed them into the new 3/1 frontrunners.

Early favourite to win, singer Sarah Ikumu, remains priced at 4/1, but has been pushed down to the second favourite as a result of the move from Missing People Choir.

Alesha Dixon hit her golden buzzer on Saturday for dance group Just Us, who are the strongest of the newcomers in the betting at 8/1.

Singer Reuben Gray, who performed original song ‘Lifeline’ and 8-year-old magician Issy Simpson also impressed and are both next at 10/1 to win.

Also making it through were married acrobats Gao Lin and Lin Xin who can be backed at 12/1 after their jaw-dropping routine saw them bag four yesses.

Comedian Jonny Awsum had a little help from Ant and Dec for his performance which saw him secure 4 yesses and a spot in the betting at 20/1 to win.

There rest of the successful hopefuls were Scooter stuntman Charley Dyson (50/1), father and son tap dancers John and Brandon Pohlhammer (66/1) and dance group QT Crew Father (66/1).

Despite being newcomers to the betting, punters can’t get enough of Missing People Choir.

They came out in their droves on Saturday evening to show their support and forced us to slash their odds from 5/1 to the new 3/1 favourites to take the BGT title.
