£15,000 Bet Stops Bond Song Betting
The last 24hrs have seen a huge shake up in the betting for who will be unveiled as singer of the next Bond theme tune. It appears that opinion is divided but William Hill are suspended after a Middlesex based customer attempted to place a £15,000 online wager on Radiohead having got the gig.
“The first gamble of the day was Ellie Goulding and punters were backing her as if she already had the gig but just as we were thinking of pulling the plug we had a load of bets for Radiohead including one customer who asked to place a £15,000 bet on the band at 10/1,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams. “There seem to be all kinds of rumours and the plot has had more twists and turns than a classic Bond tale, but surely nobody risks £15,000 on a hunch.”
