8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 5, Episode 4 was a special episode broadcast on 29 December 2014, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 5. This was the 2014 Christmas Special as well.

8 Out of 10 Cats regulars Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the contestants, along with Kathy Burke and David Baddiel who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of David Baddiel, winning by 38 – 28 in a 7-rounder and they won his and hers Countdown swimwear.

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.

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

NOTE 2: This was the first ever episode to have seven rounds in the history of the show. This has now become the second and current permanent format of the show since 2015 although occasional episodes are filmed with eight rounds still. Coupled with that, this was the only Christmas Special to date that did not have any Christmas themed Music to replace the standard clock theme.
