The odds on Priti Patel becoming the next leader of the Conservative party have been slashed by bookmakers.

Over Easter weekend the former Home Secretary was backed into 8/1 from 14/1 to take over from Rishi Sunak.

As a result Patel sits third in the betting at Star Sports, behind 5/2 market leader Kemi Badenoch and 4/1 rival Penny Mordaunt.

“As confidence in Rishi Sunak as the Conservative Party leader wanes, some amongst the Tory ranks are already looking ahead to who will replace him – whether it be before or after this year’s General Election,” Star Sport’s political betting analyst William Kedjanyi told FreeTips.com.

“Priti Patel appears to be the newest name on everyone’s lips and has seen plenty of money in the market, being backed into 8/1 from 14/1 last week to assume the responsibilities held by Sunak.”

Next Permanent Conservative Party Leader Odds

Kemi Badenoch – 5/2
Penny Mourdant – 4/1
Priti Patel – 8/1
Suella Braverman – 8/1
James Cleverly – 10/1
Robert Jenrick – 12/1
David Cameron – 20/1
