A daring punter has put down an ENORMOUS £20,000 bet on Fleur East to win the X Factor.

Ladbrokes told heat the customer, from London’s Chelsea, stands to double his money if the 27-year-old bags the top prize on Sunday night.

Her fellow overs contestant, Ben Haenow, is closely behind her and is now tipped as the contestant who’s going to cause the biggest upset, while poor Andrea Faustini is now a rank outsider.

We don’t think his dad will have helped his cause by earlier saying Andrea’s chances are doomed because all the voters are staunch nationalists...

Anywho, what will they all be singing on the night?

On the night, along with the top secret duets, Fleur will be performing Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars' Uptown Funk, Ben will be pulling Man In The Mirror back out of the bag and Andrea is going for Earth Song by Michael Jackson.

Andrea's odds aren't looking good...

Earlier today is was reported the acts have already recorded their winners singles, with Andrea recording I Didn’t Know My Own Strengt_h by Whitney Houston, and Fleur and Ben singing the One Republic track, _Something I Need.

Yesterday we caught up with the judges (bar Mel who was mysteriously ill) at The X Factor press conference who told us the calibre of the finalists was so strong this year, it was going to be the tightest call yet.

Let’s hope for that punter’s sake Fleur wins.

Then again, he is from Chelsea so it’s doubtful his wallet will really be any lighter…
