Robin McKay

Robin McKay was an octochamp in Series 74, and one of a very few contestants to have made eight century scores in their heat games. He is an Apterite and a passionate Wigan Athletic fan (possibly the only one in the world).

His début score of 129 is the joint-highest by any contestant in the history of the show (along with Giles Hutchings in Series 68 and Jamie Ilett-Jones in Series 71). He is known for his catchphrase "What you do is..." at the start of any numbers solution.

A total of 1119 points were available to McKay during his octochamp run, the highest total ever available to a player who did in fact go on to become an octochamp.
