Tony in his Champion of Champions episode against Junaid Mubeen.

Tony Warren was the runner-up of Series 55.

He started his run by defeating Jenny Turner on 10 May 2006 towards the end of Series 54 to secure his first victory. Warren followed this with 5 more wins. After making way for the series finals and Championship of Champions XII, Warren completed two more victories to attain octochamp status with 712 points, to become the eventual #4 seed.

Warren came back to face an off-form Chris McHenry in the quarter finals, running out an easy 75 – 37 winner. Phil Watson was next, this time Warren had a bad start, finding himself 16 points behind after just 3 rounds. However, by the end of round 11 the scores were level again. Watson retook a slight edge, going into the conundrum 7 points ahead, but Warren turned LYFETREES into FREESTYLE in 9 seconds to book his final berth. In the final, Richard Brittain made sure the series victory was his, pulling away from Warren in the 2nd part and never looking back.

He returned for the Championship of Champions XIII facing the unbeaten Junaid Mubeen in the first round, but lost 80 – 55 in one of the lowest scoring games in the competition.

His own record of his experience on the show can be read on The Countdown Page here.

In 2009, Tony's wife, Carol, appeared as a contestant.
