Can I go back on Countdown after 10 years?

I have a vague memory of hearing that you can go back on Countdown as a contestant if it's at least 10 years after your prior appearance. Am I talking shit or is this actually a reality? Been stranded on an island for nearly a decade but might return to the motherland next year and this is literally...

I put that comma in so it would read like a jaunty rhyme. Not really up to date on the 30th B'day Championship but from the recaps it looks like some amazing games happening.
