It will be Daniel Craig’s last outing as 007, with James Norton hot favourite to be the next James Bond.

Bookmakers have suspended all betting on him, following a series of secret meetings with 007 producers and film chief Barbara Broccoli.

There has been almost two years of frenzied speculation over the new Bond, with actors including Richard Madden and Idris Elba being linked to the role.

Ladbrokes confirmed that McMafia and Grantchester star James was 4-5 favourite to get the coveted gig and said it had halted betting; it is unknown if a mooted two-year, £40million contract has formally been signed.
