Haenow, Haenow X Factor Dream Is Over… Is This The End For The Show?

Following the not so shocking news that Ben Haenow has followed in the footsteps of Leon Jackson, Steve Brookstein and James Arthur by being dumped from Simon Cowell’s record label - William Hill offer 5/1 that 2015’s X Factor winner, Louisa Johnson, is unceremoniously dropped before the end of 2016.

The X Factor’s viewing figures have plummeted in recent years and coupled with a number of winners failing to even reach the top 40, it is 6/1 that the 2016 series is axed.

“There has been a growing voice suggesting that the X Factor should at the very least be given a rest,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “The fact that the winner from just 12 months ago has already been dropped is only going to add fuel to that fire.”
