8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 12, Episode 7 was a special episode broadcast on 24 April 2017, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 12.

Acting Team Captain Lee Mack and Regular Jon Richardson were the contestants, along with Sarah Millican and James Acaster who were their teammates respectively, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of James Acaster, winning by 49 – 36 in an 7-rounder and they won a Countdown fridge-freezer.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dr John Cooper Clarke, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Just before Round 5, all players had to compose a poem for Dr John Cooper Clarke to hear and he would choose who had the best one. He felt that Jon's poem was the best, thus five points were awarded to his team.

Interesting and notable moments from the episode are listed below:

1) In Round 1, just as Rachel put up the first vowel, she mistook it as a V as she placed an A which was inverted. Oddly enough, V is a consonant and could not have been in the vowel box. Also, the vending machine prop used during the 30 seconds consisted of candy brands that were made up such as "Carr's Bar" and "Toblo-Moan", to which all of it spilled out after Rachel pounded on the machine.

2) Just before Round 2, Jon and James changed their nameboards to "Rico + Rico +" and would remain until the end of the show. Lee was also not asked to show his solution, however it can be assumed it was identical to Sarah's.

3) In Round 3, James asked Rachel to jumble up the letters on the board. Had he not done that, the selection in the correct order would have been ENLSIOGTR. Also, Jimmy "stripped" himself naked and stood in front of the contestants once the time was up. Sarah, although not playing that round, spotted the seven-letter word SORTING.

4) In Round 4, Jon lighted up his prop which was a bulb to indicate he had gotten the solution while the clock was still running. Just as the contestants were joking about the bulb after the round, the tungsten caught fire and shattered the bulb.

5) In Round 6, the clock music was replaced with a funky music alongside with Rachel and Jimmy lookalikes dancing in the centre of the studio acting as a battleground.

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

NOTE 2: During the Conundrum, although James declared the correct answer first, the points were given to Lee's team as Lee had buzzed in literally a split second before James did; this was proven by the indicator on the nameboards, disqualifying the former.
