British bookmakers LADBROKES are taking bets on who can run faster - Jennifer Aniston or BEND IT LIKE BECKHAM star Parminder Nagra.

Both celebrities have signed up to take part in the Olympic torch relay in Greece this summer (04), and the bookmakers are keen to cash in on which actress will run the faster leg.

Aniston insisted reports of her torch-bearing were exaggerated when she attended the New York premiere of her husband Brad Pitt's new film Troy earlier this week (begs10MAY04), but that's not stopping betting Brits from waging on her.

Nagra, however, is the current favourite.
