Back­ing for Alex

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

ALEXAN­DRA Burke headed into the first Strictly episode with a big bet placed on her to win.

A stake of £1,000 – the largest placed on any con­tes­tant to date – was stuck on the X Fac­tor win­ner, 29, with Lad­brokes.

For­mer JLS singer As­ton Mer­ry­gold leads the way as the 3/1 front run­ner, fol­lowed closely by Satur­days’ Mol­lie King at 4/1 and Alexan­dra at 9/2.

Jes­sica Bridge of Lad­brokes said: “Alexan­dra’s got the X Fac­tor with pun­ters.”
