Bookmakers have tipped Arctic Monkeys to win the Mercury Music Prize for their album ’Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’.

A spokesman for Ladbrokes said that the Monkeys were head and shoulders above the competition.

“It’ll be a major surprise if they fail to win,” he told BBC News, “(They have) frozen the rest of the field out of the betting.”


The winner, who will take home a cheque of £20,000 will be announced tonight (September 5).
