According to bookmakers Boyle Sports, her odds of taking over from Jodie have been cut to 4//1 while Olly Alexander’s odds are priced at 5/1.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “We’ve seen quite a few lively contenders backed to be the next Doctor Who this year, but Michaela Coel is the candidate on the end of the most consistent support.
“The latest flurry of bets comes in the wake of her BAFTA success and makes her the most likely successor at 4/1 from 6/1.”
The One Show airs weeknights on BBC One at 7pm.
