Before the Britain's Got Talent final has even begun, experts claim that the winner has been 'decided' and the result of the competition is a forgone conclusion.

After weeks and weeks of audition shows and five nights of live semi finals, it all comes to to the grand finale on Sunday evening, when 11 acts, including a still to be confirmed Wildcard go for victory on the ITV show. It's been a week of eclectic performances in the knockouts, with many viewers not in agreement on who has gone through from each.

Two acts made it through from each of the semis, one on the public vote and the other with the judges, although three times out of five they took things back to the viewer vote, having been split with their decision. It's one of the acts who topped the vote who is seen as the clear frontrunner in the Britain's Got Talent winner odds, with bookies convinced that singer Sydnie Christmas will win.

Syndnie's odds have been shortening and shortening all week, thanks to her amazing rendition of My Way in Wednesday night's third semi final and, with just hours to go until the final, every single bookmaker had her as the overwhelming tip to win, with her the only act to be odds on the whole series.

In their final odds, Betway had Sydnie at 2/5 on to triumph, with her nearest rival being Alex Mitchell on 4/1 and Northants Sings Out Choir regarded as the outsiders on 80/1. Discussing the BGT final betting, Chad Yeomans, expert spokesperson at Betway, said: "Sydnie Christmas certainly did it 'her way' in the Semi Finals by singing the classic Frank Sinatra hit and winning the public vote in the 3rd Semi Final on Wednesday. She is priced at a strong 2/5 favourite to win the final overall."

He added: Second in the market is Alex Mitchell, or Mr Mitchell to his students, he is priced at 4/1 after wining the final semi final on Friday night. Britain's Got Talent is one of the few shows on TV that brings together acts such as singers, magicians, comedians and dancers amongst others. Ten acts are currently confirmed for the final, a judges wildcard will also enter the running on the night and could they spring the surprise?"
