Congratulations to Barry Simmons, television's newest Egghead.You have to say he never looked like losing any of the matches he was involved in.Commiserations to Shaun Wallace, 2004 Mastermind Champion, who had played so well to reach the final.
A huge raspberry to the BBC. I got home at about 5:45 this evening. It was too early tobe able to get the final on the iplayer. So my wife and I watched the celebrity Bargain Hunt on BBC2. Immediately afterwards, the BBC2 continuity announcer told us that Eggheads was to follow featuring newest Egghead Barry Simmons ! Thus completely ruining the final for me, and I am sure plenty of others. Thanks a lot !
