Bookies have suspended betting on the next James Bond as worries grow the actors name has been leaked.
A bookmaker has suspended betting on who will become the next James Bond after a large bet was placed on British actor Tom Hiddleston.
Tom Hiddleston, the star of ‘The Night Manager’ is heavily tipped to replace Daniel Craig as the next 007.
Tom’s odds were reduced to 1-2 before bookmaker Coral suspended betting.
Nicola McGeady, a spokesperson for Coral said: There is no smoke without fire, and following the big gamble on Tom Hiddleston in the last 24 hours,
“We’ve had no choice but to pull the plug on the market.
She continued: “Earlier in the year there was a gamble on Idris Elba and Damian Lewis, but nothing has come close to the recent gamble on Hiddleston.”
Tom is a “huge fan” of the film franchise, recently saying to Sunday Times: “I simply love the theme tune, the tropes and the mythology. I love the whole thing.”
