No Kidding, Jodie and Guy Hot Favs For Top Gear

Jodie Kidd is the 1/3 favourite with William Hill to be named as a new Top Gear host alongside Chris Evans. The panel could be completed by Guy Martin, whose odds have tumbled overnight from 3/1 to Evens – making him the second favourite.  


Sky Sports host, Natalie Pinkham has also been a big mover being backed in to 8/1, while some of the more bizarre requests include Prince Harry at 100/1 and Sepp Blatter at 1000/1.


“The picture is starting to get a little clearer and with Jodie Kidd all but certain to be the female host, the race is on to be the final piece in the Top Gear jigsaw,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
