8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7, Episode 17 was a special episode broadcast on 4 September 2015, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7.

8 Out of 10 Cats regulars Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the contestants, along with Greg Davies and Holly Walsh who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Sean Lock, with the assistance of Greg Davies, winning by 27 – 25 in a 7-rounder and they won a set of Countdown ski gear.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was Vic Reeves, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was notable in that the retired British professional boxer Chris Eubank made a special appearance after Greg imitated his voice once again since Episode 5 of the same Series much to his surprise. Later on, Sean had to guess whether Greg or Chris was speaking a set of lines while his hands covered his eyes. Vic then joined in halfway through to create more confusion and generated much laughter in the studio.

In Round 1, the clock music was replaced by a group of acapella singers singing to that tune. This same group woud later go on to perform in all Christmas Specials on the show since 2015.

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