Online bookmaker, Fred Done has accepted a £1 million wager on the Grand National from Simon Cowell – of American Idol and X-Factor fame – and friends on 40/1 shot, De Luc and 66/1 shot, Le Roi Miguel.

It has been reported that any winnings will go to the NSPCC children's charity – as nominated by X-Factor judge Simon Cowell, billionaire businessman Phillip Green, and Marks & Spencer boss, Stuart Rose.

The Grand National will take place on Saturday April 8 at Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool and is the UK’s biggest gambling event, as well as being one of the most prestigious horse races in the world.

Fred Done have insisted they would be 'delighted' to pay out the biggest-ever winning bet on the Aintree classic. They said, 'We’re no strangers to large bets, so we’ve agreed to pay £1million for winning, £250,000 for second, £100,000 third and £50,000 fourth.'

If the two horses come first and second, the pay-out will be boosted to £1,250,000.
