Idris Elba storms next Bond betting
Bookies William Hill have seen a surprise entry into their next Bond betting as Idris Elba stormed the market with multiple enquires and he is now their 6/1 third favourite.
William Hill have also trimmed the price of Bond knocking Harry Potter off his perch, as having the highest grossing opening weekend from 6/5 to Evens.
"Daniel Craig could hang on for a while but the rumours and money suggest that Idris Elba is a genuine contender to be his replacement," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
"The reviews are extraordinary and we believe this Bond will be box-office gold," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
