Might be imagining it, but didn't Susie seem extra intelligent in this episode?
Like some kind of demure Clark Kent...

They must be desperate when the "celebrity" is just some hopeful from Dragons Den.

I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

Yeah, he went on with his own brand of tomato ketchup and he was set for life.

"Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Crisps" are very nice I'll have you know! I think he justifies his position on the show as he also does some radio presenting...

Levi Roots is famous and popular. "just some hopeful from Dragons Den" is shamelessly dismissive, yeesh. Doesn't matter how one gets started.

I mean, I wasn't particularly aware of what else he'd done, but I assumed he must have featured elsewhere to be on Countdown, but I see Countdown celebrities as fair game for a bit of piss-taking. Don't see the problem really.

Ergo: even Gevin has heard of him... ;)

Of the celebs who've appeared so far this series, I'd rank him -on a fame scale- higher than all of Suzi Perry, Michaela Strachan, Charlie Higson, Linda Papadopoulos, Raj Bisram, Martin Lewis, Nina Hossain, Phil Hammond, & Jeremy Thompson.
