8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7, Episode 8 was a special episode broadcast on 3 July 2015, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 7.

8 Out of 10 Cats regular Sean Lock and Acting Team Captain Sarah Millican were the contestants, along with Roisin Conaty and Rhod Gilbert who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

Just before Round 5, Jimmy brought out Rachel and Susie to help the teams out, with Sarah choosing to take Susie and leaving Rachel to Sean's team. During her 23 years on the show, this was the first time Susie had ever competed as a contestant. This also meant that David took over Rachel's role in Rounds 5 and 6.

The match saw Sean Lock, with the assistance of Roisin Conaty and Rachel Riley, winning by 44 – 22 in a 7-rounder and they won a Countdown violin.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was David O'Doherty, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

In Round 5, after spelling out WORD by conincidence, the next shot showed David already having the other five letters in his hand, indicating the round had been set up. This round was also notable in that all nine letters were not aligned and straight initially.

In Round 6, the original target was 113 which could have been reached using 25 + 75 + 10 + 9 − 6. However, as Jimmy felt it was too easy, David pressed CECIL again for the eventual target of 816.

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