Celebrity Big Brother

From Countdown

Jump to: navigation, search

A Countdown-themed challenge was incorporated into the reality television series Celebrity Big Brother 7, and was broadcast on 11 January 2010.

For this challenge, the Celebrity Big Brother house was temporarily referred to as the "Last Legs Retirement Home". Therein, five of the contestants (Stephen Baldwin, Dane Bowers, Heidi Fleiss, Vinnie Jones and Alex Reid), competing as the "Last Legs" team, took on reigning Countdown series champion Chris Davies. Chris Davies won 53 – 12.

This episode used the unique 5-round format of LLNNC, which is, notably, the only known format featured in any incarnation of Countdown to have included two consecutive numbers games.

Jeff Stelling, Rachel Riley and Susie Dent occupied their normal roles as primary presenter, arithmetician and lexicographer respectively. The Dictionary Corner guest was Kaye Adams.

Notably, in Round 3, Last Legs initially declared the incorrect "50 × 100" as the first step of their solution, rather than the correct "50 × 10". When Rachel informed them of this, they corrected themselves; it was thus decided that they would still receive the points. In addition, perhaps out of pity, Last Legs were awarded 5 points for their solution in Round 4 despite having been beaten by Davies. Likely due to time constraints, neither of Davies' step-by-step numbers solutions were televised.
