Who will replace Andy Coulson?


Ian Birrell is the 6/4 favourite with Ladbrokes to be David Cameron’s next spokesman.

With Andy Coulson’s departure confirmed several names have been linked with the position and despite ruling himself out of the running Ben Brogan is the 4/1 second favourite.

Rebekah Brooks is a 25/1 chance with Piers Morgan an interesting outsider at 66/1.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “The rumour mill is churning at full speed already and we expect the money to soon speak volumes about the identity of the new spokesperson.”
