A bookmaker has paid out on bets that Adele will be chosen to sing the new James Bond theme, before it has been confirmed.

William Hill originally offered 4-1 the record breaking singer would land the prize role, but had to shorten their odds due to the amount of bets placed.

There have been numerous reports that the London born star will sing the theme for Skyfall although no official announcement has been made.
