Paul James in Series 67.

Paul James, a Security Guard from Brampton, Cumbria, was a contestant in Series 38, an octochamp in and the champion of Series 67, and a participant in Championship of Champions XIV.

He originally appeared on the show in April 1998 Series 38 aged 29. Returning early in Series 67, he achieved four centuries in his octorun to return for the finals as number 1 seed. A strong finish helped him defeat Grant Waters in the quarter-final, and survived an unsolved crucial conundrum in his semi-final against Rose Boyle to book his place in the final, where he defeated Heather Styles to win the last full series to be recorded at Granada Studios.

James returned in 2016 for Championship of Champions XIV but lost in the first round to Series 71 champion Dan McColm.

In 2012, he made his CO-event debut at COEDI.

In September 2001, he also appeared on and won an episode of The Weakest Link.
