The remaining X Factor contestants face the judges – and the public – this weekend with an exit predicted for at least one member of boyband Stereo Kicks.

The eight-piece group, who range in age from 14 to 20, ended up in the bottom two last weekend but survived when Chloe-Jasmine Whichello lost the sing-off.

Their mentor Louis Walsh told the ITV’s singing show’s spin-off programme The Xtra Factor that he never wanted the group to have eight members.

He said: “Eight never worked in a boyband but Simon (Cowell) put them together. I wouldn’t have eight. I never wanted eight.”

Bookmakers William Hill are offering odds of 2-1 that at least one member will leave before or during Saturday’s show.

The firm’s spokesman Rupert Adams said: “To begin with it was idle speculation that the band needed to lose a couple of members but there seems to be something in this and it will be no surprise now if we see a cull.”

The group are 4-1 to be kicked off the show completely this weekend – just behind favourites Stevi Ritchie and Jake Quickenden.
