There is a clear frontrunner in the betting on who will replace Ryan Tubridy as the next host of the RTE Late Late Show.

Tubridy shocked bosses and TV viewers last week by announcing he was standing aside as the host at the end of the current series after 14 years at the helm.

On Friday night's show, he hinted at his replacement might be by wishing them luck, "whoever she may be," suggesting a female host is being lined up for the flagship show for the first time.

Current affairs presenter and Laois native Claire Byrne is the clear favourite in the betting having been backed into 6/4 from 9/4 with BoyleSports.

Early favourite Miriam O’Callaghan has now drifted out to 9/2 in the betting having once been as short as 4/6 odds-on.

Of the other female contenders, Prime Time presenter Sarah McInerney is now also 9/2 from 9/1 while the biggest mover of them all is Ask Me Anything presenter Angela Scanlon who was slashed to 9/2 (from 33/1) after a few interesting wagers were placed in a Dublin City Centre shop.

BoyleSports is quoting just 1/14 on RTE bucking the trend and choosing a woman (or women!) for the role and a considerably larger 7/1 that Tubs will be replaced by another man.

Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “It’s been a busy ever-changing market since we opened the betting last week and we’ve seen interest in quite a few different names, all female, with some surprising interest in Angela Scanlon, but Claire Byrne is by far the most fancied for the top job at Montrose.”
