Katie Price and Alex Reid split to cost bookmakers thousands
Even though an official statement has yet to be released, there is high speculation surrounding the marital break-up of Katie Price, aka Jordan, and Alex Reid, meaning bookies are expecting to shell out large sums of money as soon as the split is officially confirmed.
William Hill and Paddy Power were just two of the bookies who named the reality TV couple as one of the hot favourites to be the first celebrity couple to break up this year.
And where one romance ends, another relationship will inevitably soon be on the horizon, which is why bookmakers are already calculating odds for Katie Price’s new beau. William Hill spokesperson Rupert Adams said: "Katie Price has cost us a few quid on a couple of occasions when she has split from her husbands and Alex was popular when he won Celebrity Big Brother. We have already opened the betting on her next victim, offering 4/1 a plastic surgeon and 11/4 that she marries a non-league footballer."
Other career choices for Jordan’s next husband include an actor at 5/2, and 5/1 for him being a singer or dancer. On the celebrity break-up subject, William Hill are also offering odds of the next celebrity split of the year, with Russell Brand and Katy Perry being placed at 7/2, Lewis Hamilton and Nicole Scherzinger at 10/1 and even Prince William and Kate Middleton, who have outside odds of 66/1.
