Jamie Oliver To Cook Up Another Christmas Treat?
Bookies William Hill have opened their betting on who will have the biggest selling book this Christmas and the odds suggest that Jamie Oliver is once again the man to beat at 1/2. Other titles that are expected to sell well include the Guinness Book of Records 2012 (11/2), the Inbetweeners Year Book (10/1) with Paul Scholes also offered at (10/1).
"The odds suggest that Jamie Oliver will be very hard to beat but we believe that the longlist is stronger this year than last and Jamie could yet be beaten," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
