Could this be Britain's unluckiest man?

James Robinson has been entering TV gameshows for 12 years – but has never won a penny!

The 26-year-old has appeared on half a dozen programmes since the age of 14 but has walked away each time empty-handed.

The lad, from Mirfield, West Yorkshire, suffered his latest failure just this month on Channel 4's Fifteen To One, when he reached the final six before getting the boot.

In the past, the self-confessed game geek has also appeared on Pointless, Breakaway, Mastermind and Countdown - twice - as well as auditioning for The Chase.

James came close to glory in 2011 when he reached the final of Pointless, but narrowly missed out on first place.

He was quoted in the Daily Star saying: "I haven't actually won any money yet but I put that down to just being unlucky. I have a Pointless trophy and a Countdown goodie bag though."

The game fanatic is now hoping to bag a place on BBC shows Perfection, National Lottery – Who Dares To Win and Only Connect.

Let's hope he gets gameshow victory soon!
