    I did it in two goes yesterday morning @BenCotto  and in three, this morning.  I try and use letters that are unusual in my first word and then it is just fluke.

    Did you know that there is an Italian dancer called Benjamin Cotto?  Well, now you do!!

    No, I didn’t know that @tui34. I’m vain enough to have checked my real name on Facebook - worldwide there are about 30 of us - but, until now, I have never checked my soubriquet. There are about 15 Ben Cottos, heavily concentrated in Italy. Che sorpresa.

    I got it in 3 today, lucky guessing the last 2 letters to start with.

    I have been watching Lingo since doing Wordle and would like to ask how you pronounce H.   

    I have always said "aitch" and was told that "haitch" was incorrect.  Most of the contestants and the compere pronounce it "haitch".   Help!!

    It is /Aitch/

    @tui34 I agree with you. "aitch" is correct and "haitch" isn't. Anne-Marie who is standing in for Rachel Riley on Countdown says "haitch" and it's not an easy word to say.

    Okay.  Thank you @Fire and @Fran IOM .  Surprised that it isn't picked up by the directors of these shows.  But anything goes now and I'm not talking about different accents.
