The name's Shelby, Thomas Shelby. But could Cillian Murphy be about to take on another huge role?

Daniel Craig will leave the role following the 2019 movie 'Bond 25' and the hunt for his replacement is on.

Names in the running so far have been Harry Styles, Idris Elba, Tom Hiddleston, James Norton and Cillian's Dunkirk co-star Tom Hardy.

However, it's looking very good for the latecomer to the race as the bookies have just slashed Cillian's odds from 125/1 to 12/1.

The move comes as OddsChecker is reporting that 72% of all Bond bets have now been placed on his name.
