Didn't think round 5 would have anything higher than 4.

So are you saying that was you? Presumably based on more recent comments ("Will we get 8 octochamps or not? I can tell you if you wish to know"), you're a regular in the audience? I was unfortunately never in the audience for my whole life. I know someone who knows if we get 8 octochamps or not tho...

When was the last series where a 7-time champion didn't make the finals? Was it Series 47? As a wiki/Countdown history geek I should totally remember this... guess I've gotta turn in my card now :mrgreen: Yeah that's right. 3 7 time winners couldn't make the finals. Bad time to be on the show right?
