Who Next For The Celebrity Couple Scrapheap?

As news of the shock celebrity split of the year (Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog… not the other one) hurtled around the globe, William Hill were looking into their crystal ball to see who would be next. Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman are 5/1 to have consciously uncoupled before the end of the year while Kimye are 10/1 to Runaway from each other.


“2015 has been a year of shock celebrity split and it is not beyond the realms of possibility that the double whammy of Zerrie and Kerggy parting will not be the last,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.  


Literal and figurative royal couples, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and David and Victoria Beckham, look safe and are 100/1 and 66/1 respectively to break up.


William Hill had 18 winners who correctly predicted that Perrie and Zayn would split in 2015 with one punter placing £10 at odds of 14/1 (returning £140).


To split before the end of the year: 5/1 Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman; 8/1 Frank Lampard and Christine Bleakley; 10/1 Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux; 10/1 Kim Kardashian and Kanye West; 16/1 Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie; 20/1 Kate Winslet and Ned Rocknroll; 20/1 Peter Crouch and Abbey Clancy; 66/1 David and Victoria Beckham; 100/1 Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
