A number of bookmakers have launched odds on Boris Johnson’s exit from 10 Downing Street as speculation about the prime minister’s future continues.

With the PM recently seeing his approval rating collapse, and a handful of polls revealing that more people currently believe Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer would do a better job in charge, bookies have seen plenty of punters placing bets on Mr Johnson’s departure date.

Mr Johnson was 8/1 or bigger with firms as recently as the start of September, but as he continues to negotiate with the European Union over Brexit trade, and struggles to keep on top of the coronavirus pandemic, several bookmakers have reacted by shortening his price about a departure before 2021.

Paddy Power halved odds on Johnson being replaced as PM before the year is out from 8/1 to 4/1 following recent tabloid reports about an “Unhappy Boris”, while it is odds-on that he leaves Number 10 in 2022.

Spokesman Paddy Power said earlier this week: “It has been a chaotic few days for Boris Johnson, to say the least.  And the increased pressure is reflected in the betting, too, as his odds of being replaced before the year is out have shortened significantly.”

Who will be Prime Minister after Boris Johnson?

Betting on Boris’ departure date has, naturally, led to betting on the next Prime Minister, and at time of writing Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer is the bookmakers' favourite in the latest Next Prime Minister betting.

Sir Keir is a best price 2/1 with William Hill in their Next Prime Minister Betting market, ahead of Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak who is the 3/1 second favourite to be the next person in charge at 10 Downing Street, as well as the market leader in the latest Next Tory leader betting market.

Mr Sunak had been as big as 250/1 to be the next Prime Minister prior to becoming Chancellor earlier this year.
