8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 16

From Countdown

8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 16 was a series of eight special episodes of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown that began on 13 July 2018 with a special commemorating 100 years of women's suffrage, and ended on 31 August 2018.

Notably, the first episode of this series was the first time Jimmy Carr did not host the show due to the reason mentioned above. Instead, Katherine Ryan hosted the episode, making it the first time in Countdown history that all presenters and contestants were female. Coupled with that, Episode 4 marked the 100th episode of the show since its inception in 2012. This was the first series where the host is seated at the very beginning rather than walking up to the centre of the studio to do the introduction.

Joe Wilkinson also made a special appearance as a guest in Episodes 4 and 5.
