'2022 or later' still the overwhelming favourite in the market
While Johnson is seemingly flying closer and closer to the sun, bookies are still relatively confident about him clinging on to his job in 2022 at the very least, with odds of 1/4 on offer.
It’s fair to say the prime minister is no stranger to shrugging off controversy, but will the sheer weight of Dominic Cummings’ allegations, amongst many other things, see the hot water Johnson currently resides in reach boiling point?
Who are Johnson's potential successors?
Should Johnson meet his end, Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak is the favourite to become next PM, priced at 16/5.
Second-favourite is labour leader Keir Starmer, but his ascension would involve his party winning a general election, but he's available at 41/10.
Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: "Headlines in the press appear to have had a seismic impact on the political betting markets, with odds slashed across the board on Boris Johnson leaving office this year.
"In terms of a potential successor, Chancellor Rishi Sunak is the 16/5 consensus favourite ahead of Labour's Keir Starmer at 41/10, meaning no clear frontrunner has yet been established."
