Bookmaker Ladbrokes has slashed the odds on Richard Madden becoming the next James Bond after big support for the Bodyguard star to land the role.


Current 007 Daniel Craig is set to leave the role after filming the 25th instalment of the famous spy saga later this year/early 2019, and the subject of who will be replacing him has been the hot topic for quite some time.

Recent reports have claimed Bond bosses are keen to make Idris Elba as the first ‘black Bond’ and he remains a front-runner at 4/1 behind 2/1 favourite Tom Hardy, but a new name has entered the race in recent days with Madden becoming a contender for the role after earning much praise from viewers for his performance on BBC drama Bodyguard.

Madden has been the subject of 70% of all bets in Ladbrokes' Next James Bond market over the last week, and as a result his odds have been slashed from 33/1 all the way in to 10/1.

“Richard Madden has impressed viewers and punters alike in the BBC’s new hit show,” Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati told Bettingpro.com. “We reckon he’s got a genuine chance of swapping Budd for Bond.”
