Bookies slash odds on X-Factor finalists after final 12 internet leak

Bookmakers have slashed the odds on potential X Factor finalists after internet rumours revealed the final 12 contestants.

With the bootcamp stage of the competition over, next weekend will see the remaining twenty-four acts head off to the home of their mentor to be whittled down to half that number, who will perform in the live final stages of the contest.

But a number of internet sources claim to have inside information which reveals the acts who make it through the judges homes stage of the show - which was pre-recorded last month.

X Factor bosses have denied the claims, and suggested that the so-called leak is nothing more than a hoax which began on a fan website, but bookies remain unconvinced and have acted fast.

According to the unofficial sources, the final 12 are:

Boys mentored by Cheryl Cole:
Lloyd Daniels
Rikki Loney
Joe McElderry

Girls mentored by Dannii Minogue:
Rachel Adedeji
Stacey Soloman
Lucie Jones

Groups mentored by Louis Walsh:
Kandy Rain
John And Edward Grimes
Miss F.R.A.N.K

Over 25s mentored by Simon Cowell:
Jamie Archer
Danyl Johnson
Olly Murs

Bookies Paddy Power are still touting teacher Danyl Johnson as their hot favourite to win the compeition, alongside Lucie Jones at 7/2.
