Rishi Sunak shook hands on a £1,000 bet with Piers Morgan earlier this week

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak was once again in the news this week following his interview on Talk TV with Piers Morgan when he shook hands on a £1,000 bet with the presenter.

The bet itself was on whether deportation flights to Rwanda would take off before the general election with Morgan saying that he bets £1,000 that Sunak doesn't get anybody on those planes.

PM Sunak then shook hands on the bet and said that he is “working incredibly hard to get the people on the planes” and OLBG have hypothetical odds around the bet being paid.

Currently Sunak is 2/1 to pay out on the bet with Morgan the favourite at 4/6 to be the one who has to pay £1,000 to a refugee charity.

Sunak has since took a u-turn on the bet saying he was not a betting person

Sunak was interviewed on BBC Radio 5 Live on Tuesday after the interview had aired and said that he was taken by surprise in the interview by the £1,000 bet.

“I am not a betting person and I was taken totally by surprise in that interview," said Sunak in that interview but according to The Guardian it's since been shown otherwise online.

Sunak has spoke in the past about the pleasures of Spread Betting saying that he was doing Spread Betting online during in the past around Test Match Cricket.

Further odds look at who Sunak's replacement will be as next Conservative Leader

More odds are offered around who will replace Rishi Sunak as the next leader of the Conservative Party with the latest odds still putting Kemi Badenoch as favourite.

Badenoch is the 9/4 favourite with the current betting odds suggesting a 30% chance that she is the one to takeover from Sunak next.

It's unclear when the next General Election will be but it's certain that a loss for the Tories will signal Sunak's departure and a new leader for the party.
