THE HERALD helped celebrate the opening of a new Ladbrokes in Seaside by placing a free charity bet.
Reporters Juliet Perry and Joanne Smith attended the official opening of the new betting shop and were given a free £50 bet from Ladbrokes .
They decided to split their money on the winners of X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing.
They put £25 on Holly Valance to win the dancing and £25 on Janet Devlin to come out on top in the talent show.
Both contestants made it through to the next round in last weekend’s shows and the Herald staff will be hoping they’ll go on to their respective finals at Christmas.
Any winnings will be donated to charity.
