Rishi Sunak is the most popular bet with Ladbrokes to become next Prime Minister.

The Chancellor is the current 5/2 favourite to succeed Boris Johnson in No.10, and the bookies have revealed that more bets have been placed on Sunak than Keir Starmer (3/1).

Ahead of Wednesday's Budget, the firm has priced up what phrases the Chancellor will use in his statement, and it's odds-on he talks about 'Climate Change' and that we need to 'Build Back Better', while even money says 'Housing Ladder' gets a mention.

'Marcus Rashford' is 5/1 to get a shout-out, while it's 16/1 the 'Great British Pub' is spoken about.

2/1 says Sunak wears a blue tie, with 5/1 on offer for black and white, green or red.

Ladbrokes spokesperson Jessica O'Reilly told FreeTips.com: "Sunak's the favourite with both the bookies and punters to become next PM, and should Wednesday's Budget be well received his odds could shorten further."
