Take my wife... Leaders' debate novelty bets
It sounds like the start of a Bernard Manning joke but William Hill are offering odds on which of the leaders will be first to mention their own wife during tonight's debate on Sky.
Nick Clegg is the 6/4 favourite and we make David Cameron 7/4 with Gordon Brown 15/8. Bet here
William Hill are also offering odds of 6/4 that Nick Clegg will again refer to Gordon Brown as a 'desperate politician' as he did in a recent newspaper interview in the second debate on Thursday night (1/2 he doesn't).

250/1 FAINT HOPE? A William Hill punter has staked £10 at 250/1 that David Cameron will faint during the 2nd Leaders' debate.
"This is the oddest bet request we've yet received during the Election campaign," said Hill's spokesman Graham Sharpe.
