I recently took a few shots with my 20D set to B&W, when reviewing them in-camera, they are B&W but when viewing in Capture One of PS CS RAW converter they are displaying in full colour.
Whats going on? Am I missing something here?

You'll only get B&W if you shoot JPeg, as the camera processes the RAW on the fly for this. RAW is always the full data the sensor sees, so will always be in colour until you process it yourself.
EDIT, if you shoot in RAW + JPeg you'll get the B&W Jpeg as well as the full RAW file.
No sounds like you got the full colour info
If its RAW it should be un-touched by camera settings. In fact its best in B/W as you can split the image into the three colour channels. If you take the monochrome from the red channel its like sticking a red filter on.
i just learned something/ thanks
John, applying a red fillter (in-camera) was the reason for setting to B&W.
