Gamble On Attenborough To Be New Face Of £20

William Hill have seen significant support for Richard Attenborough to be the new face of the £20. The former actor and director has been backed in from 14/1 to 9/1 making him third favourite behind William Blake at 6/1 and JMW Turner at 8/1.

“Since the rather long shortlist was announced, it has been pretty much one way traffic for Richard Attenborough to be the face of the new £20 note and he could be favourite before too long,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
