8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 15, Episode 4 was a special episode broadcast on 9 February 2018, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 15.

Acting Team Captains Johnny Vegas and Joe Wilkinson were the contestants, along with Rhod Gilbert and Roisin Conaty who were their teammates respectively, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Johnny Vegas, with the assistance of Rhod Gilbert, winning by 31 – 19 in an 7-rounder and they won a Countdown dog kennel.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was Tom Allen, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent. Darts player Andy Fordham made a special appearance as a guest as Johnny's mascot.

Interesting and notable moments from the episode are listed below:

1) In the introduction, while Joe was introducing his mascot which was an actual mascot of himself, Fabio, one of the show's models smacked the latter with a wooden chair which broke into pieces and dragged it off stage with much laughter ensuing. Also, Johnny challenged Jimmy if he and Andy scored over 101 points in a game of Darts, they would disturb him which they did after they obtained 108 points with Johnny having the last laugh by throwing his unused dart at him.

2) During the 30 seconds of Round 1, the music was replaced by a heavy metal tune with punksters dancing in the centre of the studio. The studio lights as well as the table lights also turned to green. Also, due to an unidentified woman behind Rhod's postbox assisting him with his declaration in Round 1, it was considered cheating by Jimmy and as a result, both teams scored six points each instead.

3) In Round 3, Jimmy and male models gave tea and giant biscuits to the contestants and the Dictionary Corner.

4) During the 30 seconds in Round 6, Jimmy and Rachel went into a Photo Booth to take pictures. Unbeknownst to both of them, Fabio was inside the booth and "kissed" Jimmy multiple times on his face.

NOTE 1: In this version, both players' declarations were allowed, although points were only awarded for the best answer.

NOTE 2: The conundrum had two valid solutions: RELAPSING and SPANGLIER.
