What are Danny’s odds for I’m A Celebrity and Strictly?

A spokesperson for Betfair said: “Danny Dyer is 2/1 to swap the Queen Vic for being served jungle treats and appear on I’m A Celebrity in 2022 following his EastEnders exit.

“As for his acting, Dyer is 80/1 to don a black tuxedo and replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond and 100/1 to play the next Dr Who, while Emmerdale at 6/1 is the most likely top soap that he’ll appear on, ahead of Hollyoaks (8/1) and Coronation Street (10/1).”
