Los Angeles - Abe Simpson is the red-hot favourite to be killed off in The Simpsons.

Al Jean, a longstanding executive of the US animated sitcom, recently revealed one of the show's major characters is to be killed off in the 25th series, and the loveable family's Grampa Simpson has emerged as the most likely to bite the dust.

According to bookmakers Ladbrokes, the odds on Abe passing away have been slashed from 6/1 to 3/1 after several punters backed his time in Springfield to come to an end.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: "There's been a flood of money for Grampa Simpson and the early cash suggests he'll be leaving the show sooner rather than later."

Other favourites

The Simpsons producer Bill Schultz has hinted either Grandpa or Sideshow Bob will get the chop from the show, but also said whoever dies could reappear in the programme at some point in the future.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, he said: "Even if a character was killed, what is to stop them from bringing them back?"

Other short-priced favourites to be killed off include Comic Book Guy (3/1) and teacher Edna Krabappel (7/1), but it is 200/1 for one of the Simpson clan, Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa or Maggie, to be killed off.
