Daily Mirror shitposting. It was never good, but somehow, them, the Mail (cricket articles aside), and the Express have somehow got even worse recently.

I noticed Innis was credited as a researcher for the Christmas edition of University Challenge - is this new?

I happened to be the contestant in the Five Words, Five Grand section on The Dave Berry Breakfast Show on Absolute Radio this morning.

You can see how I did here, go to 19:45.

Seven, according to his Apterous wiki page, so fewer than Dinos, Ryan, me, and probably a few others.

Keep plugging away. Have you tried for Impossible? They are a great bunch of people, plus it's a very winnable show and you get up to five chances to win the daily ten grand jackpot.

Seen a few on 15 to 1 to recently. Nick Hall is on today, another former player Kate Strang won her show and one of Bradley Horrocks' prelim opponents Leah Holroyd made the final 3. Could be more...

Martin Hurst's original vanquisher and Quarter Finalist Robert (Rob) Jones, was on Radio 2's Popmaster quiz today. He got to the final round with an impressive 33/39 pts but could only name 2 out of 3 J Lo hits in the 10 seconds required...

Was it a repeat ?
You was certainly one of the best contestants I've seen recently , personality wise.
I got the last question right because I've been to Singapore and they don't have a racetrack.
Well not in 1986 at least.
Nice of The Beast to say the team would have won with you in it.

Why thank you! It was a repeat, initially shown March 2016. No idea it was going to be shown until someone spotted it and told me. In hindsight, Singapore is far too small to have its own full race track, but I only had enough time to think "WHERE THE HELL IS MONACO" about three times before having to pull something out. Ah well, no regrets.

I'm sure you will do well on your next quiz show.

Was the reference to Willie Thorne being a world snooker champion some kind of piss take, 25 years after Baddiel and Skinner used to mercilessly mock him on Fantasy Football?
