An ambition/rich punter has bet a whopping £30,500 that Saara Aalto will win this year’s X Factor competition. Should she actually pull it off the punter will be in for an amazing £62,650 windfall.

The bookies have suggested that Saara is now the favourite to win the competition.

William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said,

“Saara has come from nowhere to become the red hot favourite to win the X Factor and there are plenty of people who have been backing her to win in recent weeks, not least our punter who has staked £30,500 on her in the space of the last seven days”.

The singer who had a rocky start in her time with the juggernaut show said that she feared an anti-gay backlash and felt forced to live a lie after getting engaged to her girlfriend in the summer. She revealed that she and her girlfriend, Meri were the first gay female couple to come out in Finland.
