Bookies Favour Missing People Choir for Britain’s Got Talent

The 15th series of Britain’s Got Talent has just recently started airing on ITV, and bookmakers William Hill have already opened their betting market for the outright winner. The current favourite in that market is the Missing People Choir, with singer Sarah Ikumu the clear second-favourite. Both of those contestants are being offered at single-digit odds, with others being offered at double- or even triple-figure prices, so let’s run through the main acts as they stand right now and see what they offer…


The Missing People Choir represent the charitable organisation Missing People, and its members are friends and family members of people who have gone missing at some point. Acts representing good causes always fare quite well in television talent shows, and William Hill currently have this one down as the early 3/1 favourite to win.

Sarah Ikumu is a highly talented singer who is just 15 years old, and her voice was impressive enough to cause Simon Cowell to press his Golden Buzzer in the first episode of this year’s show. That means Sarah is certain to be participating in the live semi-finals, and anyone who wants to put money on her winning can take odds of 5/1 about her doing so.

Jess Robinson is an impressionist and comedian who got her BGT chances off to a good start by performing a compilation of songs from the likes of Britney Spears, Shirley Bassey and Julie Andrews, as well as peppering her act with impressions of Sharon Osbourne, Katherine Jenkins and more. Right now, William Hill have her down as the 14/1 third favourite.

DNA is a mind-reading duo who blew the audience away by correctly telling Amanda Holden which contact and number she had randomly picked from her phone, predicting how Simon Cowell would answer a series of seemingly random questions and somehow changing their t-shirts without most of the audience noticing. William Hill offer odds of 16/1 about DNA winning the show.

Other contenders at the time of writing are magician Niels Harder (50/1), eight-year-old stand-up comedian Ned Woodman (66/1), comic Adam Keeler (100/1), dancer Dan Graham (100/1), dog yoga teacher Mahny and her dog Robbie (100/1) and dancing-people-dressed-as-pets, Paws With Soul (100/1).

It is obviously very early days for this year’s series, and more acts will be added as it continues, but bettors who want to strike an equally early wager could get a good price for doing so. Visit William Hill to keep an eye on the Britain’s Got Talent market, and good luck with your bets.
