You Bet Gino Will Get Jamie's Gig!
Jamie Oliver and Sainsbury's will be parting company at Christmas and William Hill have opened a book on who the supermarket will decide to replace him with. Hills currently make Gino D'Acampo their 2/1 favourite with Marco Pierre White offered at 7/2 and James Martin a 4/1 shot. Of the outsiders MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace is a 12/1 shot and Tom Aikens a 16/1 shot.
"The Sainsbury's gig must be the most sought after advert in the food industry and although Gino is our favourite, I think that James Martin fits the profile like a glove and is good value at 4/1," said Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
