Surely if its the average since you cant go below 1 then everyone must of predicted around 1,2,3 otherwise the average would never be below 24 area.

Hmm, lots of speculation. I thought it was confirmed to be a split screen editting trick??
However, Roger Heath-Brown, Professor of Pure Mathematics at the University of Oxford, has dismissed Brown's explanation.
"Mathematically it is complete rubbish. It is a bluff on his part," he said.
And David Spielgelhalter, professor of public understanding of risk at the University of Cambridge added: "There is a difference between guessing between the weight of an ox and guessing lottery balls, which is un-guessable.
"That is just a clear wind-up and complete nonsense. There is absolutely no way he did that."
