Normal People odds-on to win a BAFTA

Popular BBC series Normal People is odds-on to win a BAFTA.

The hit show has also led to Paul Mescal’s odds being slashed in a bid to become the next James Bond.

Normal People has already driven BBC Three to its best week ever for programme requests on iPlayer, and our traders make it just a 1/2 shot to win at least one award at the next BAFTAs.

The success of the show has also seen odds slashed on Paul Mescal replacing Daniel Craig as the next James Bond to just 16/1, from 100/1 last week.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Normal People is the biggest show on the iPlayer platform right now and recognition at the next BAFTAs looks inevitable according to the latest odds.”

Could Paul Mescal be on course for a BAFTA Bond double?
