Page is flattered by the rumours but continues to say that’s all there is to them. Nevertheless, the hunk remains the favourite at the bookies to replace Daniel Craig after No Time To Die.
Bookmakers Coral said: “Our betting for who the next James Bond will be remains a strong heat, with lots of contenders. However, it is Regé-Jean Page who we still favour [as] the favourite to be the next 007.”
The Bridgerton star leads the pack on 11-4, followed Tom Hardy on 7-2, Henry Cavill on 5-1, plus James Norton and Idris Elba on 6-1.
Just behind them are Richard Madden and Jamie Dornan on 8-1, with the latter having seen his odds cut after recently starring in The Tourist and Belfast. And a bit further back are Jamie Bell and Sam Heughan on 12-1.
