Punter set for £100k Jedward Eurovision payout
Bookies William Hill are once again in fear of Jedward after a Hills customer placed a £5,000 bet at 20/1 that they will win the Eurovision Song Contest, should the customer be correct then they will win a massive £100,000.
It is the second four figure bet on the Irish duo, who have been cut from 20/1 to 14/1, and early indications are that a Jedward victory could cost the industry an astonishing £2 million.

William Hill hope to take £1 million by the time the show has finished on Saturday 14th May and as it stands, France are the 11/4 favourites with the UK offered at 11/2.
"Jedward may well appeal to the Eurovision audience and should they win it will be the worst result for the bookies in Eurovision history!" said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
