From Countdown

Leaney in his seventh edition.

Glynn Leaney was a contestant in Series 39 and the runner-up of Series 40. Leaney won six games before the start of the Series 39 finals; he was offered the opportunity to carry over to the next series rather than enter the finals unbeaten as #7 seed (as there was some uncertainty about the final seedings board at the time of the end of filming of the heats, owing to #6 seed Vicky Smith not being able to make the studio dates for the quarter finals), and he elected to do so.

Leaney's son Chris would go on to appear on Countdown in Series 75 in 2016. At the end of Chris's first game, Glynn made a brief cameo appearance.
