Following the announcement of the New Year’s Honours List, William Hill are looking ahead at some of the names that may have been missed off this time around who could be in line for an acknowledgment in the next 12 months.
Kenny Dalglish is a 5/1 shot to be made a Sir either in the summer or next year’s New Year’s Honours List, with John Simpson 8/1. Rebecca Adlington and Adele are 8/1 and 9/1 respectively to be made Dames.
