James Squires was a contestant in Series 24 and 40.

He first appeared as an eight year old and, after a narrow defeat, the production team allowed him to appear again seven years later. He scored better on his second attempt than in his previous but unfortunately he lost on a crucial conundrum. Squires is the only contestant known to have been admitted to the show a second time while still under 16.

Despite this, he has since become a competitive Scrabble player and finished 7th in the 2017 UK Open.
