Wombling Christmas Could Cost William Hill £100,000!
William Hill have seen an unprecedented gamble on the Wombles to top the Charts on Christmas day and their odds have plummeted from 50/1 to 7/1.
"This is the biggest ever November gamble for a song to be the Christmas number one. On Sunday we were offering 50/1 on the Wombles gaining the top spot, now they are just 7/1 and could get shorter," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
