Former binman Andy Abraham is currently the bookmakers' favourite to win the television talent show 'X Factor' for his mentor Sharon Osbourne.

The 41-year-old London native, who sang 'The Greatest Love of All' in his first live studio performance, is the overall favourite to win outright, as well as the favourite solo performer.

Louis Walsh's contestant Shayne Ward is currently second favourite to win the competition, after his performance of 'Right Here Waiting' last Saturday night.

Journey South, made up of brothers Carl and Andy Pemberton, are currently the group rated with the best chance of winning by bookmakers. The brothers from Middlesbrough sang 'Something About The Way You Look Tonight' last week.

Irish group The Conway Sisters, from Sligo, are outsiders to win the show outright.
