Current Prime Minister Boris Johnson and leader of the Labour Party Jeremy Corbyn are the chief contenders to enter Number 10, with the leader of the Conservatives fancied by the bookies at 1/4 to emerge as the country’s leader in the early hours of December 13.

Corbyn is less fancied at 5/2, while the leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson, who earlier this month made the audacious claim that she was “Britain’s next Prime Minister'' is an outsider, with odds of 33/1.

According to bookmakers, the most likely outcome of the General Election is a Conservative majority with odds currently floating at 1/2. A hung parliament is the second most probable outcome with odds of 7/4. A Labour majority is highly unlikely if odds are to be believed - that result is listed as 25/1.

Aylesbury and Buckingham will both be represented by two new MPs come December 13 when results begin to filter in with Speaker John Bercow and David Lidington both stepping down.

Conservative candidate for Aylesbury, Rob Butler, is backed by the bookies to take the place of David Lidington with ease. He's 1/200 to claim the seat which has been in Conservative hands since 1924. Labour are a long-shot to claim the seat at 33/1.

Buckingham, which has been occupied by the neutral Speaker since 2009, should be a far tighter affair.

The Conservatives are 1/8 favourites, with the Liberal Democrats rated at 11/2 to cause an upset. Labour are a distant third with odds of 18/1.
