Millions of people enjoy a flutter every day, but most punters are betting on the races or the match - or are they? In his time at William Hill, author Graham Sharpe has seen people willing to bet money on the most outrageous propositions, and has gathered stories of odds, oddities and weird wagers from all over the world. One punter has taken odds of 500/1 that Michael and Latoya Jackson are one and the same person. Completely barmy? Well, Graham thought so until he checked the records and found that there is no record of Latoya before 1987 and that Michael and his sister have never been photographed together. Richard Burton was buried dressed entirely in red in order to win a bet from beyond the grave with Peter O'Toole, Paul Newman is willing to bet half a million dollars to prove that he is taller than 5'10" and George Rhodes won 86,056.42p for a 5p seven-horse accumulator bet in 1985 - an all time record.
