8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 13

From Countdown

8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 13 was a series of four special episodes that began on 8 June 2017 with the 2017 Snap General Election Special and ended on 6 July 2017.

The Election Special was the first ever episode to feature the current set used on Countdown, preceding the normal version by three and a half weeks and used a special format due to the shortened duration of the episode. In 2021 this episode was removed entirely from the official catch-up service.
