Christine Hunt (Series 4)
- For other people called Christine Hunt, see Christine Hunt.
A housewife from Towcester, Northamptonshire, she won three heat games early on in the series before losing at the hands of Peter Skiba. She returned for the final rounds as #7 seed, and beat Sydney Price in the quarter-finals before beating Peter Skiba in the semis in a rematch of their earlier heat game. However, she was outclassed in the final against Brian Hudson, losing 87 – 55.
She returned to Countdown in 2013, as one of 41 contestants taking part in the 30th Birthday Championship; among these, she was the one whose original finals appearance was the earliest. She received a bye to the first round, and won her first game against Series 8 contestant Sandie Simonis by a score of 88 – 78, after needing to get 2 conundrums to win. She then succumbed to the Series 66 champion Jack Worsley in round 2.
Away from Countdown, Hunt occasionally plays in Scrabble tournaments.
