Appearances on the programme

Heat games

Macleod scored 124 in his final heat game to confirm membership of the 800 club and become number 3 seed for the finals.

Finals

Macleod was in top form throughout his quarter- and semi-final, scoring centuries in both games and achieving victories by more than 50 points in both games. Macleod's run ended in the final with a narrow defeat to Martin Hurst.

Macleod is one of a few, if not the first person, to have beaten two members of the same family on Countdown, having defeated Samantha Dorrough during the heats and then her father, Stephen Fuller, in the semi-final.

Championship of Champions XV

Macleod returned to Countdown in January 2019 as a contestant in Championship of Champions XV. He faced Bradley Horrocks in the seventh preliminary of the first round, putting in a creditable effort (including the niner OVERLINED) but ultimately falling 128 – 104 to the Series 77 runner-up.
