Andrew Strauss could be set for a career in politics according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies report significant interest in their 50/1 on offer that he goes to stand in Corby at the upcoming by-election with 16/1 the price he's a Westminster MP by or at the next General Election.

Should Strauss confirm he's running in Corby the Conservatives' current odds of winning the seat (12/1) would surely shorten to put pressure on warm 1/20 favourites Labour.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: "If Strauss goes in to bat in Corby the Tories' odds of securing the seat will tumble."
