Team Tom, Team Gavin, Team Jennifer or Team Just two weeks in, and already a favourite has emerged, with bookies taking bets on which star will be the winning manager this series. And, according to William Hill, it's Jennifer Hudson who is set to take the crown.

Jennifer's position at the head of the pack is likely thanks to Mo Adeniran, who picked the American star to be his mentor in the very first episode. He currently stands as favourite to win the singing competition after wowing both the judges and the audience.

"Jennifer is proving to be an excellent judge and could well win at her first attempt," William Hill spokesperson Rupert Adams said of the 35-year-old, who is making her Voice debut this season. "Clearly ITV were keen to get the show off to a flyer, and there remains a theory that Mo is the best of all the contestants."

Mo blew all four judges away with his rendition of Paolo Nutini's Iron Sky when he appeared on the opening episode of the series. The talented 21-year-old recently opened up about his experience on the show, and explained why he thinks Jennifer is the perfect mentor for him.

The 21-year-old had already decided he would pick Jennifer if her chair turned round

"It was such a relief when so many judges turned around, but before I went I thought to myself that I’d go with Jennifer if I was lucky enough for her to turn around," Mo told the Liverpool Echo.

"My plan was that if Jennifer turned around then I'd pick Jennifer as my mentor. She's so talented, her voice is amazing. She's been through a lot and I really respect her."

He added: "Since the audition Jennifer has been amazing. She understands what I'm working towards. She really is a massive star, but it's nice that she's so humble."
