Congrats to John. For a non-apterite, his word knowledge was strong and he may be a dark horse if he works on his numbers....

And it's even more likely if we include people whose heat runs are only partially in Series 81..... :!: :!: :!:

It would defeat the purpose if the top nine seeds aren't all octochamps though.

It says on the wiki that Luke Johnson-Davies will appear in December. Has he not got enough time for 8 then? Is that what you were referring to?

It's probably always been like this and I've only just noticed, but I see that the budget extends to four of the posher poppies, but contestants have to make do with the basic model. Saves buying new ones every year, I suppose.

I wonder why people on television wear poppies so much earlier than everyone else. And also, are they forced to? Let's see what Jon Snow has to say on the matter.

I imagine it's hard to buy them in August or whenever they recorded.
