Well, along with many workplaces across the country, we coughed up some hard-earned cash to put together a world cup sweepstake.
With baited breath all the ifour gang started with optimism and excitement which faded for some as certain teams (ahem!) didn't make it through the group rounds.
But we all enjoyed the studio banter as, one by one, each team went home leaving an exciting fight for third place and then the final.
So, without disclosing just how much they won (cough cough), the winners are Jimi in third place with The Netherlands, Dave in second place with Argentina and Melissa in first place with the well deserved winners Germany. Drinks are on those guys and girls!
Let's spare a thought for Mark eh?
