Odds On The Voice Will Return But Will Stevie Be A Success?

After Stevie McCrorie won the Voice, William Hill are offering 7/1 that he manages to bag a number one single before the end of the year. It is more realistic for a top ten hit and that is offered at 6/4. 

Despite the wealth of talent and big names, the show continues to struggle when compared to the X Factor but William Hill offer 1/6 that despite this, the show returns for another series.

With judge changes a regular occurrence on the show, all of this year’s judges are odds on to stay on for next year. Will.I.Am and Ricky are both 1/3 to return, Rita is 1/2 and Sir Tom is all but certain to be back at 1/6. 

“The Voice as a concept is a great show but the makers and judges are still struggling to bridge the gap between the show and chart success,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “It seems all but certain the show will return, however, whether Stevie is successful of not is still up for debate.”
