Florence Cappleman-Lynes in Series 84.

Florence Cappleman-Lynes was an octochamp in Series 84, the first under Anne Robinson. She is also an Apterite. She lives in Rochdale and is married to Series 82 runner-up, and fellow Apterite, Sam Cappleman-Lynes. She has qualified to return for the series finals in December 2021.

Florence started her Countdown journey in the 12th heat of the series on 13 July 2021, emerging victorious with the first century under Robinson. After a run of two wins with scores in the 90's, Florence wrapped up her unbeaten run with another five more, all with scores above 101. She solved a crucial conundrum in her sixth match against Jonathan Walne and concluded with a personal best score of 124 points.

She is the 50th member of the 800 club entirely under the "new" 15 round format, having attained 860 points across her run, and is the first woman, as well as the twelfth person ever, to solve all eight conundrums in their preliminary matches on the show. With 22 letters, she has the joint-longest name of any octochamp to date (the other being the late Michael Macdonald-Cooper).
