8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 1, Episode 5 was a special episode broadcast on 13 September 2013, as part of 8 out of 10 Cats Mash-ups Series 1.

8 out of 10 Cats regular Jon Richardson and Lee Mack (who stood in for Sean Lock) were the contestants, along with Bob Mortimer and Adam Hills who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of Adam Hills, winning by 153 – 0 in a 9-rounder, with the size of the winning score achieved primarily due to the fact that the conundrum for this episode only was worth 100 points.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician, and Joe Wilkinson helped her out from round 5 onwards. The Dictionary Corner guest was Alex Horne (accompanied by his band, The Horne Section), and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

There was also an appearance from Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards, who appeared as the front end of Joe's pantomime horse.

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