Tell us something about you we don't know. I was the first Northern Irish contestant on Countdown. Beaten on the Conundrum, but we still enjoy the effort presented by my opponent in an early round. Said with a lisp "Sweepy - like a sweepy movement". As my spell checker reminds me - it wasn't allowed.
