Hey, could someone tell me what the word 'punter' means in this particular sentence: I was a bit nervous going into it as I've read either bad reviews (broadsheets) or very good ones (tabloids, punters & Jonathan Ross). It is from a review of Johnny English. The meaning I found in most dictionaries doesn't make much sense in this context.
Not a teacher.
In this case "punter" refers to someone who is just a regular member of the audience, rather than someone who went in a professional role, e.g. a critic.
