Bookie jumps on FSoG bandwagon

Posted: August 28, 2012

As speculation continues that Fifty Shades of Grey is to extend its franchise into the world of lingerie, bookmaker Paddy Power is taking bets on which retailer will be first to stock the range – great news for anyone in the trade with insider information.

 

Soho’s Agent Provocateur is the 5/1 favourite ahead of Ann Summers and Lascivious both installed as 8/1 second-favourites. Housewives favourite Marks and Spencer can be backed at 16/1 but bottom of the bookies list come Aldi and Lidl, both considered 100/1 outsiders by Paddy Power.

 

Paddy Power said: “It’s been the most talked about book of the year so a lingerie spin-off is a certainty to get pulses races in bedrooms across the nation!”
