However, Betfair also carries interesting odds of 4/1 for a spin-off series this year. Quite what this spin-off series would focus on is anyone’s guess.

What about Strictly and I’m A Celebrity appearances?

A spokesperson for Betfair said: “The finale may have underwhelmed many, but the odds suggest it will not be the last you have seen of AC-12 on your screens.

“We make it odds-on that series seven airs next year and 6/5 in 2023 – while it is also odds-on at 10/11 for a spin-off show next year.

“Compare that to 8/1 for the show to have ended with Sunday’s finale.”

The company also issued odds for appearances by the cast in Strictly and I’m A Celebrity.

Vicky McClure was the favourite for Strictly (11/10), while Martin Compston is top of the list at 4/1 for I’m A Celebrity.
