Little Mix are bookies favourites to win X Factor

We're through ... Little Mix, with Tulisa Contostavlos

LITTLE Mix were odds-on favourites last night to win X Factor after Misha B was dumped from the final by viewers' votes.

Bookies immediately made the girl band — Jade Thirlwall, 18, Jesy Nelson, 20, Perrie Edwards, 18, and Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 19 — 4/5 on to win.

Marcus Collins, 23, is 11/10 second favourite and Amelia Lily, 17, is 5/2 with Ladbrokes.

Misha, 19 — rocked earlier in the competition by a bullying allegation — looked unsurprised as presenter Dermot O'Leary announced the result and did not shed a tear.

She said: "I just want to say thank you to everyone here at The X Factor for making my dreams a reality."

Misha praised her mentor, judge Kelly Rowland, and also thanked her family for their support. She then performed for the final time to a standing ovation from the judges with a self-penned rap and Jessie J's Who You Are?

The results show did not feature individual performances but began with the semi-finalists performing Wilson Phillip's Hold On.

Judge Kelly also performed a raunchy dance medley of her hits in a tiny pair of black shorts and a crop top.

Final fling ... Amelia Lily can't believe it

Misha's exit sparked a Twitter frenzy of support last night with soccer's Rio Ferdinand posting: "If Misha B doesn't become a big selling artist then she will have been let down."

The acts will perform in the final next week singing with Coldplay, JLS, One Direction and Leona Lewis.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said: "Little Mix have all the momentum. Fans can't get enough of them and the girls are clearly in pole position.

"If Little Mix fluff their lines between now and winning the prize it'll be a big shock. Punters had another fantastic night predicting the end - The Sun

I don't believe for a minute that Little Mix can win.  They will come third imho

Don't underestimate Little Mix's fanbase, it's a whole lot bigger than you think

Catwoman: "For one if I was a bloke, I would not flirt with you two. I have standards."
Toots: "If I had a figure like Ola's, I'd wear that outfit to Sainsburys!"

Well done Little Miss,  I think they'll do better than past winners.
