8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 9, Episode 1 was a special episode broadcast on 25 February 2016, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 9.

8 Out of 10 Cats regulars Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the contestants, along with Vic Reeves and Aisling Bea who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of Aisling Bea, winning by 37 – 29 in an 8-rounder and they won a Countdown kayak.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician. The Dictionary Corner guest was David O'Doherty, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent. Entertainer and Winner of Series 8 of Big Brother Brian Belo also made a special appearance in Round 7 where he queued up to get Jimmy's signature.

Interesting and notable moments from the episode are listed below:

1) During the Introduction, Aisling and Jon donned suits and pretended to be bartenders to which they served cocktails. They would be seen wearing the suits for the remainder of the show.

2) Throughout the show, Jon's magic bean would grow a plant which was shown in a pot and by Round 5, the plant grew exponentially visible to everyone with the accompanying audio increasing its frequency. Sadly, Jon pulled it down to which it was then revealed as a fake, to which a squirrel mascot "fell" and called him a "prick".

3) In Round 3, Rachel attempted to "use" sign language to what Aisling was saying after the time was up. At the same time, after BONDAGE was spotted by Jon who was not playing the round, Sean pretended to have that word instead to add insult to injury on the former.

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