Lindsay Denyer

Lindsay Denyer was an octochamp in Series 19.

A newsagent from Falmouth, Cornwall, she beat Felicity Brown in her first appearance, she quickly racked up a further seven wins to become the only octochamp of the series, and returned for the final stages as #1 seed. She beat Linda Keen in the quarter-final, but lost to Gino Corr in the semis.

Denyer returned for Championship of Champions V, and beat Mandi Hale in the first round before losing to eventual winner Tim Morrissey in the semi-final.

Denyer became the first female octochamp in the show's history. With an aggregate of only 386 points in her eight heat games, Denyer is also the lowest-scoring 9-round octochamp.
