James Norton and Michael Fassbender are the frontrunners to become the next James Bond in the week Daniel Craig became the second longest-serving 007.

Craig has starred as the spy in four films over more than 11 years, although is it not known if he will continue in the franchise.

His last outing as Bond was in 2015's Spectre, but shortly after its release he said he would rather "slash my wrists" than appear in another film as the secret agent.

According to bookmakers Coral, betting has surged on Norton or Fassbender taking over from Craig.
