Despite continued speculation that Zimbabwe-born singer Gamu Nhengu is DEFINITELY OUT of this year’s X-Factor live finals top bookie Paddy Power has, against the odds, reported a sustained torrent of betting on the 18-year old to be crowned this year’s champion.

It was thought that Gamu would be thrown a lifeline in the shape of a wild card entry into next weekends live finals however it is now believed that the lifeline has in fact gone to follow competitor Treyc Cohen AND NOT Gamu.

Paddy Power are the only bookmaker offering betting on Gamu to win X-Factor ‘with a run’ which means Paddy Power punters will have their losing bet refunded on Gumu if she does not take part in the live finals.
