Betting on The Great British Bake Off’s Next Presenter
Following Mary Berry’s announcement that she will not move with The Great British Bake Off to Channel 4 the bookmakers have been quick to open markets on her replacement.
It is very early days and there has not yet been any hint from the production company as to who the replacement could be but at William Hill and Paddy Power the favourite is Clare Balding at 7/1 followed by Jo Brand at 8/1. Another popular choice is the 2015 winner Nadiya Hussain who is also available at 8/1.
In true bookmaker fashion there are of course odds available on some highly unlikely people. Jeremy Clarkson is available at 33/1 as is comedian and actress Maranda Hart. The longest odds available are 150/1 on the Chuckle Brothers while Samantha Cameron and Sarah Brown come in at 125/1.
