Ivy Baird, also known as Dixie Baird (from her full name of Ivy Dixon-Baird) was a finalist in Series 2. She was from Nottingham.
In 1991, Baird also participated in an unreleased Countdown Masters episode against Frank Houston from Series 14. Between 2002-2003, she filmed a 15-round game against Series 1 winner Joyce Cansfield, but this was also never broadcast, giving Baird the distinction of being the only contestant to have ever participated in two unreleased games.
