Still have to put up with it for another year though. Personally I hope with more episodes needed it means we might get some more specials!
Definitely not Jamie McNeill or Schrodinger's Cat....

That is a big assumption.

Hopefully it will happen, and hopefully it will realise my dream of nine octochamps in a series.

Is your dream to have nine octochamps in a series, or is it to cackle with schadenfreude as an octochamp with a subpar average is sent home?
Q: What is the longest word in the world?
A: "Gigaparsecs", because there is a gigaparsec before the last S.

A bit of both. I thought it would happen after we got eight at basically the first opportunity (series 47) as well as some seven-time winners, and we haven't had that many since.
