Bond beckoning for Kylie?

Bookmakers have slashed their odds on Kylie Minogue becoming a Bond girl.

It follows claims the singer has been shortlisted for the coveted role.

A source told the Daily Star: "It's just a matter of whether she will play the 'good' Bond girl or the 'evil' Bond girl."

Ladbrokes say they've cut their odds from 4/1 to 2/1 after a run of big bets.

A spokesman said: "Punters can't get Kylie out of their heads."

Kylie's spokesman said film makers are always sending her scripts, but said no deal had been signed yet over the new 007 movie - dubbed Bond 21.

Britney Spears has already said she'd love to be a Bond girl, but Pierce Brosnan is thought to be keen on Keira Knightley. Carmen Electra has also been mentioned as a possible contender.
