As the UK wakes up to the news of a hung parliament, odds on Boris Johnson becoming the next Prime Minister are dropping.
Theresa May’s humiliating failure to secure a majority has put the future of her leadership in jeopardy, possibly opening the door to Number 10 and allowing Mr Johnson to sneak in.
Bookmakers Paddy Power are currently offering odds of 5/1 on the Foreign Secretary becoming the next Prime Minister – making his odds shorter than Jeremy Corbyn’s.
