That's the one sq. More about the prod treatment if they don't want you. Plus of course Kelvin was in the original plans. I have him well onside, but when I looked at the stats top scorers in week 1 have a terrible win record.

Probably have a couple of stand ins on call. I remember from somewhere that the auditions to get on the show are quite intensive. They would have been well aware of his ability.

What they tend to do is start chipping away. Picking fault with things the viewers can't see. Very rare that a white male triumphs without them trying to get them beat. That will be the test for me, can Kelvin's support hold up against prod machinations. Very unlikely they will allow a coronation.

Yes Abbey was joint top iirc, and visited the dance off on the way to winning.

to me it seems like most winners have been up there early doors and the progress is a perception created by scores, comments, bad weeks, etc.,  apart from the ringiest ringers who were never particularly likeable from the outset

Interesting isn't it hems, I feel the right type of runner could still easily win without having 'the journey'. I suppose Danny Mac is the closest in recent memory, he was short priced fav at the close of play but Ore had the better night. Pity we don't get to see the pv of course.
