Dennis Fearon was the runner-up of Series 32. He won the final four heats of the series to return for the final rounds as #5 seed, and beat Graeme Sugarman and Satbir Gupta in the quarter- and semi-finals respectively, both by way of a sudden-death conundrum and both with a 63-53 scoreline. In the final against Alan Sinclair, it went down to a crucial conundrum with Dennis leading by 5 points.

However, this was incorrect, and as soon as the clock was restarted Alan buzzed with the correct answer, NOSTALGIA, meaning Dennis suffered his first-ever defeat on the show. Dennis returned the following week for Championship of Champions VIII, but was comprehensively beaten in the first round by David Acton.
