Stevi Ritchie is backing Ben Haenow to win 'The X Factor' final this weekend, and admits he would've loved to have sung with Olly Murs
Stevi Ritchie thinks Ben Haenow will win 'The X Factor'.
The 34-year-old wannabe popstar has revealed he'd like to see his fellow over 25 contestant win the competition after being voted out last month.
He said: "To be honest I have to go with my overs. Ben or Fleur, I think possibly Ben might win it, but a lot of people are saying Fleur ... I mean all three of them are going to get record contracts without a doubt, but I think Ben has probably got the edge. I don't know why but I think he'll clinch it."
The cheeky chappy also confessed he wishes he'd made it to the final this weekend so he could've performed a duet with his musical idol.
Quizzed on what song he would've sung in the final, he said in a Q&A with Mecca Bingo: "Straight forward, Olly Murs as my celebrity duet and singing 'Dance With Me Tonight', definitely. I think that would be a great one because it is the first audition that I did, and of course I forgot the lyrics, so it would be quite ironic to actually remember the lyrics and do it with Olly. [sic]"
Meanwhile, Stevi is hoping his former mentor Simon Cowell will offer him a presenting gig in the new year.
He added: "Well I would still like to say that I will keep in touch with Simon and he will offer me a job next year, doing something on camera, I don't know what, anything really."
