McDowall: It's Marcus or Misha

Jai McDowall has said he is backing Marcus Collins or Misha B to win The X Factor.

The Britain's Got Talent winner, who has been watching the current series avidly, reckons the competition will come down to those two.

"I don't know who I want to win because for a while, it was Misha B. But now I quite like Marcus. It's between the two of them, so if either one of them wins, I'm OK," he revealed.

The 25-year-old, who will release his debut album Believe on December 12, admitted Misha, who has courted controversy in the series, has captured his affections.

"I quite like Misha, because she is really good. I think she's got what it takes to make it. Regardless of whether she wins or not, she would do pretty well out of it. She stands out. In the M&S advert, she's the only one that I think really stands out - and she's a babe, so that sums it up," he added.

Jai was "shocked" to see the exit of bad boy Frankie Cocozza.

"I was quite disappointed about Frankie. I think he comes across as quite a nice lad, but he made a stupid mistake," he said.

"He's just a kid and kids will be kids. I think we've not seen the last of him to be honest but he has blown his chances with The X Factor, which is a shame, but hopefully he will still do OK."
