Paul Anderson was a contestant in Series 81. He's a Full-Time Dad and Part-Time Musician from Dublin, but is originally from Limavady in Northern Ireland. He is also an Apterite and a moderator on Countdowners. He made his Co:Event debut at Co:Dub 2019.
Anderson is co-host of the Focal Talk podcast, along with Series 69 champion Callum Todd. In 2020, during a time of international lockdowns due to a coronavirus pandemic, Anderson launched ZoomDown, a series of games of Countdown played over the Zoom video call software broadcast live on the Focal Talk YouTube channel.
Anderson was at one point 8/1 with Ladbrokes to replace Nick Hewer as the next Countdown host (shorter odds at the time than the likes of Richard Osman), but ultimately the job went to Anne Robinson.
