John Hadfield, 32 years after his first appearance, in Series 80.

John Hadfield was an octochamp in Series 14 and contestant in Series 80. As of his 1st appearance, he was a showroom manager for a bedroom furniture company from Isleworth, Middlesex. As of his 2nd appearance, he was the Town Crier of Westbury in Wiltshire.

He survived a crucial conundrum on his début, and went on to accumulate 429 points to qualify for the finals as No. 3 seed. He faced Frank Houston in his quarter-final match, where he built a 10-point lead after the first three rounds. He then fell to 5 behind five rounds later after missing an available T extension of FUNNIES and blundering in the last numbers round. Houston eventually solved the crucial conundrum UNCLEPEAT to upset Hadfield's run.

Hadfield returned for a second debut in 2019, but unfortunately ran into Elliott Mellor who ended with the highest ever score of 152 points on Countdown.
