Massive Gamble On Zayn Bagging Number One This Year!
Zayn Malik has claimed that he wants to be a “normal 22 year old” but William Hill have had to slash the odds of him getting back on the bike before the end of the year. After he announced he was leaving the band, his odds of having a number one single before the end of the year were 5/1, however, that price has been gobbled up and he is now just Evens to top the charts before the start of 2016.
“Zayn will clearly have been planning his exit strategy for some time and while he wants to be a normal 22 year old he will clearly have given some thought to his future and despite leaving 1D, his future looks very bright,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
As for the band that he has left, William Hill have pushed out their price of One Direction splitting from 2/1 to 3/1 after they performed just hours after Zayn left the band.
“The four remaining members of the band were clearly gutted to be performing so soon after Zayn’s departure but they did well and this could be the making of them,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
Zayn will no doubt be wishing to spend a bit of time with his fiancée, Perrie, and it is 4/1 that the pair finally marry this year.
Malik is 100/1 to replace Jeremy Clarkson on Top Gear.
