Odds offered on Lopez to divorce
Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
Affleck and Lopez called off their wedding, citing "media attention"
The complex love life of Jennifer Lopez has led bookmakers to give odds of 7/1 on her marrying and divorcing boyfriend Ben Affleck in 2004.

Ladbrokes is also giving odds of 2/1 that Justin Timberlake and Cameron Diaz will wed, while Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher's odds of marrying are 1/3.

In the field of music, Pop Idol winner Michelle McManus is 66/1 to have five or more number one hits in 2004.

The odds on pop group Atomic Kitten splitting are 8/1.

Punters can place a bet on Rod Stewart stepping up the aisle with girlfriend Penny Lancaster at 5/4.

But there is little festive cheer for newlyweds Ulrika Johnsson and reality TV star husband Lance Gerard-Wright who have been given odds of 4/1 to divorce in 2004. The pair only got married in August.

And constant speculation about the marriage of Victoria and David Beckham has led to odds of 25/1 being given on their divorcing.

Horse racing movie Seabiscuit, which starred Tobey Maguire and Chris Cooper, has been given odds of 25/1 to win the best film Academy Award at the 2004 Oscars.
