I feel like this must have been covered before, but I hereby Ask Graeme: what are the highest aggregates for a one-time, two-time, ..., eight-time winner? (Ideally split for 9/old 15/new 15 formats.)

If someone had more than one run on the show, each is counted separately. I've counted everyone's totals in the same way: winning and losing scores count, but not drawing ones. Tiebreaks don't add points to a total. Note this might not match how a contestant's total was calculated at the time they appeared. The wiki indicates that in some early series draws counted towards your total but losses didn't, but this is obviously silly so I've ignored it.

9 rounder:

0 wins: Stuart Schofield (70)

1 win: Ray Johnstone, George Gruner (123)

2 wins: Jonathan Storey (188)

3 wins: Susan Shilton (253)

4 wins: Andrew Bull (310)

5 wins: Darren Shacklady (389)

6 wins: Chris Rogers (427)

7 wins: Rodney Marrison (455)

8 wins: David Williams (535)

Old 15 rounder:

0 wins: Terry Rattle (107)

1 win: Tim Charlton (193)

2 wins: Graham Dugdale (306)

3 wins: Matthew Coates (389)

4 wins: Roy Thearle (489)

5 wins: Marie Hayden (593)

6 wins: Chris Hunt (715)

7 wins: Steve Baines (758)

8 wins: Jack Hurst (946)

Although I haven't added series 69 to my main database yet, by means of a quick hack I've included all games up to today. So in case anyone hasn't seen recent games, I've spoiler-coloured it.

New 15 rounder:

0 wins: Alan Flanagan, Ross Lander (82)

1 win: Jean Wright (151)

2 wins: Peter Fenton (262)

3 wins: Jill Hayward (374)

4 wins: Margaret Lawless (359)

5 wins: Zarte Siempre (656)

6 wins: Gemma Church (602)

7 wins: Callum Todd (747)

8 wins: Dylan Taylor (974)

Zarte's 656 is not only the highest five-win total, but it's higher than the highest six-win total for the new 15 rounder, and higher than all but four of the 23 six-win totals in the old 15 rounder.
