Turner Leads The Field In Incredibly Close Bond Betting…

Aiden Turner heads the betting to be named as the next James Bond with a new series of Poldark just around the corner. He is 7/4 with William Hill amidst rumours that Bond bosses have their list of potential Daniel Craig replacements should he step down. Other names in the frame include James Norton at 5/2, Jack Huston at 3/1 and Tom Hiddleston at 5/1.

“There is no clear favourite as to who will pick up the reins when Mr Craig hangs up his tux for the last time and we have seen a number of different actors at the head of the betting at various points over the last 12 months,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “If we were to look at the betting, it would be difficult to suggest who will be the next Bond but a lot easier to work out who is on the shortlist.”
