Do you make up these names to see if we're awake?
Ed, Clacton, UK

Gill, Hastings

Mark, Reading, UK

When I got home yesterday evening I had received a Christmas catalogue in the post. Is this the earliest ever?
Basil Long, Nottingham

David Faulkner, Chelmsford, UK

After winning: "How do you feel?"
"Were you expecting to win?"
"Are you happy with that?"
