If you fancy a break from the serious business of picking out the form teams in the opening weeks of the new Premier League season, William Hill is offering punters the chance to bet on the next big British TV classic to be resurrected.
Some of the nation’s favourite shows have returned to the small screen already this year – including Cold Feet, The Crystal Maze and Porridge – and the response has been enthusiastic. That means you can be sure that there are plans for many more revivals in the pipeline.
If you’ve got a favourite that you think is ripe for a comeback, William Hill is offering you the opportunity to put some money on it.
The Generation Game is favourite for a return, at evens, with The Vicar of Dibley at 2/1, The Fast Show at 3/1, and The Big Breakfast an outside bet at 25/1. Meanwhile, sports fans will want to get behind a Big Break comeback, priced at 8/1.
