This year marks the 60th anniversary of the James Bond film franchise and we’re now over 12 months on since No Time To Die hit cinemas with no news of the next 007. Nevertheless, Coral bookies have Casino Royale auditionee Henry Cavill as their firm favourite on 6-4. A spokesman said: “Punters have been knocking us over in the last 24 hours to back him to replace Daniel Craig.”

Cavill, who stars in Enola Holmes 2 as Sherlock Holmes on Netflix tomorrow, has been the focus of some big film and TV news over the last few weeks.

Firstly, his fans rejoiced at his return as Superman to the  DC franchise, following a cameo with Dwayne Johnson in the end credits scene of Black Adam.

However, it wasn’t long before he left the world devastated at the news he wouldn’t be starring in The Witcher season 4, but would instead be recast with Liam Hemsworth.

Could this mean he’s gearing up to play Bond and doesn’t have time for the fantasy show? Anything is possible, although given his return to Superman that could well be the reason.

Cavill is also pushing 40 and EON Productions are looking for someone in their thirties to play Bond next. Nevertheless, he’s certainly shown he can portray a spy in The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the teaser for the upcoming Argylle.

Meanwhile, behind the star in second place at the bookies is Bridgerton hunk Regé-Jean Page on 7-2, followed by Tom Hardy on 5-1 and Idris Elba at 6-1.

Other contenders include Chiwetel Ejiofor (13-2), James Norton (10-1), Aidan Turner (12-1), Jamie Dornan (12-1), Jack Lowden (16-1) and Callum Turner (20-1).
