Subject: Bookmaker suspends Bond song betting after £15,000 bet

Written By: Philip Eno on 07/30/15 at 2:02 am

A leading bookmaker is refusing to take bets on which artist will record the next James Bond theme song after one customer tried to place a £15,000 wager on Radiohead being selected.

"Nobody risks £15,000 on a hunch," said a spokesman for William Hill, who make the band 6/4 favourites to get the gig.

Ladbrokes, Coral and Paddy Power have also suspended betting.

A spokesman for Radiohead said he had "no comment" on whether the band would be performing the Spectre title track.

Bond star Daniel Craig is known to be a Radiohead fan, having quizzed frontman Thom Yorke for Interview magazine in 2013.

Speculation about whom will sing the song has been feverish in recent days, with Ellie Goulding emerging as another favourite.

The star posted a photo on Monday that appeared to hint she had been chosen.

"That's a wrap!" the singer wrote on Instagram, next to a photograph of her leaving Abbey Road studios in London.

The historic recording facility was where Adele recorded the title track for Skyfall, the previous James Bond film, in 2012.
