There’s not long to go until ‘Emmerdale’ fans discover who pulled the trigger when Robert Sugden was shot, and bookies have now published their predictions ahead of the big revelation.
The shooter will be unmasked in a special flashback episode that airs on 22 October, and there’s definitely no shortage of suspects.
Betfair have now named Michael Parr’s character Ross Barton as favourite, offering odds of 1/2, with Paddy Kirk close behind.
Fans who fancy a flutter ahead of the reveal may want to look a little further though, and the odds for a number of seemingly-innocent characters have reduced massively in recent weeks.
Trader Colm Rock explains: “As we creep closer to the big reveal, the price for Emmerdale’s vicar, Ashley Thomas has inexplicably crashed from 100/1 to 5/1 second favourite in recent days.
“Prime suspect and village bad boy, Ross Barton remains the 1/2 favourite mystery character to have pulled the trigger on Robert Sugden but Paddy Kirk has also been well-backed from 14/1 to 5/1 joint second in the market.
“Aaron Livesy had spent some time at 3/1 and second favourite but despite finding himself behind bars last week he is now 8/1 behind Rakesh Kotecha who has been backed in from a staggering 50/1 to 7/1.
“Lachlan White is a character that’s no stranger to controversy and at 10/1 has seen some support, even his co-star Gemma Atkinson reportedly suspects that he could be guilty but that it may be ‘too obvious’ as a storyline.”
