The Independent Online
YOU WILL not be unaware that the hunt is on for a new James Bond. Bets are being placed. William Hill has reported a tidal wave of support for Coronation Street hunk Reg Holdsworth, the smooth-tongued corner shop proprietor, at odds of 1,000 to 1. I am not so sure. The Daily Express has predicted that the part will go to a Briton 'with dark snarling good looks and an overtly sexual line in body language.' Ring any bells? Raise your eyes, if you will, to the illustration above this column. The Captain is ready.
