Kevin Thurlow was a finalist in Series 47.

He defeated Deanne Meeres in his first game, scoring 123 points in the process – a score that was at the time the highest ever debut score on Countdown. He became an octochamp, beating future contestant Philip Jarvis and future semi-finalist Peter Lee during his run and returned for the final rounds in summer 2002 as #6 seed. He pulled off a minor upset by defeating #3 seed Lee Hartley in the quarter-finals, but was defeated in the semi-finals by ultimate runner-up Tom Hargreaves. His own record of his experience on the show can be read on The Countdown Page here.

He competed in the first tournament, COLIN 2005, and subsequently CoBris 2005, COLIN 2006 and CoBris 2006.

Thurlow then founded the Countdown in Redhill tournament (or CoRed for short), which began in March 2007.

Outside of Countdown, he also appeared on the show Brainteaser.
