Ben Haenow takes to the stage this weekend in a final bid to beat Fleur East and Andrea Faustini to the title of X Factor winner.

The 29-year-old van driver from Croydon has already recorded his version of “Something I Need” by One Republic which he will release as a single should he emerge victorious on Sunday night.

Fleur has also laid down her vocals for the One Republic song, while Andrea has gone down the balled route with a cover of “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength” by Whitney Houston.

But with stiff competition from two other strong acts, what are Ben’s chances of following the likes of Leona Lewis and James Arthur to victory?

Ladbrokes has named Ben as the singer most likely to cause an upset in the final with odds of 11/4. Fleur is the runaway favourite at 4/11 while Andrea is an outside bet at 14/1.

Look back at some of Ben’s best performances:

"Man in the Mirror" by Michael Jackson

"Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers

"Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen

"Jealous Guy" by John Lennon

"Come Together" by Ben Haenow

Ben will be singing “Demons” by Imagine Dragons on Saturday along with his song of the series, “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson, which he chose with mentor Simon Cowell.


The X Factor final airs on ITV this Saturday at 8.30pm and again on Sunday at 8pm.
