Nicole Scherzinger must be feeling quite uplifted today because Hannah Barrett has emerged as the early favourite to win The X Factor this year according to an ITV This Morning Poll.
Today the program conducted a poll where viewers voted for the act they would like to see win the show. Hannah was in front by a slight margin with 16 percentage points followed jointly by Nicolas McDonald and Rough Copy who both polled 15 percent of the votes.
The poll also shows that the two acts with most to fear in the early rounds are Lorna Simpson and Shelley Smith. The pair had only 1 percent of the viewers votes, which is not good news for Over 25s mentor Sharon Osbourne who has never had a winner on The X Factor.
