Bookmaker not taking bets on Corrie killing
Britain's biggest bookmaker has suspended betting on who kills Coronation Street's Tina McIntyre.
William Hill stopped taking bets on the ITV soap whodunnit yesterday at 9.46am after a "monster gamble" on rogue Tony Stewart from punters cut his odds from 100/1 to 2/1.
McIntyre – played by Michelle Keegan – will be seen falling from a balcony at a builders' yard after a dramatic confrontation with her killer on May 27. Her brutal end launches a hunt which will grip Weatherfield.
William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams said: "There was a real rush to back Tony – including a number of new account openings. We fully expect Tony to be unveiled as having done the dastardly deed."
The odds on the killer are 4/6 for Rob Donovan, 2/1 Tony Stewart, 5/1 Peter Barlow, 10/1 Carla Barlow and 16/1 for Tracey Barlow. Michelle Connor and Simon Barlow were at 25/1 to be named as the culprit.
