Undefeated Champnio!

"And so, it came to pass that the right Royal Tudor monarch came to his fourth day as reigning champnio (sic) on Steve Wright in the Afternoon's Big Quiz. And verily, he didst triumph again and did gain more prizes of the tons-of-classic-soul-artistes-CD's variety. And he didst worry if he might cop a question the next day about "Coronation Street" or quantam physics of which he knew-eth precisely nowt, and wouldst lose all his worldly prizes. And there was much wailing and gnashing of teeth, and he didst chicken out and leggeth it with all his prizes and who couldst blameth him?"
Yes, in that rather florid way, I can confirm that I have retired, Rocky Marciano-like, undefeated as Champnio on the "Steve Wright in the Afternoon" "Big Quiz". It has been a really fun four days, and I know I got a big score today but I felt I was living on borrowed time and so yes, I took the cowards way out, and cut and run. I hope you have all had a good listen to me, if you missed it you can go to the Steve Wright page on the BBC Radio 2 website and click listen again!
So, I had now better go back to being a normal monarch again now!
