Maybe but it's not been the case with standard CoCs in the past.
With the exception of CoC XII, where it happened with Corby -- he had to be entered into XIII instead. (Possibly Martin Bishop in CoC XIII too, although this seems to be more as a result of them having too many people from Series 59 already.)
Sorry to go back to a post from ages back, but have been reading through and saw my name.

I was invited to CoC, but was starting a new job during the filming days, so couldn't make it.

Ah, OK. Thanks for clarifying. (And sorry for talking about you behind your back. :P)

Did they ever have a proposed first-round opponent for you, or did this all happen before the draw was made?

Really good to see that a C of C is finally taking place. I think there will be some classic games and I wouldn't be at all surprised if there's more than 1 game which both players max all the way to the conundrum. I personally think that this whole tournament will go down really positively with the viewers, or negatively and be seen as an "apterous exhibition" Will make sure to keep tabs on what's happening in the tournament

Not familiar with all the names there but from what I've seen I think Dylan will probably be a clear favourite and I'd imagine Callum would have a very good chance too. Good luck to all taking part.
Probably the second tallest ever series finalist.
