Celebrity Letters and Numbers

From Countdown

Celebrity Letters and Numbers is the Australian panel show which is based on Letters and Numbers, the Australian version of Countdown. It premiered on 2 October 2021 and is broadcast on SBS (Special Broadcasting Service). The show is equivalent to 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as it features local celebrities and has more comedic upbeat tone compared to the original show.

The series features David Astle as the lexicographer and Lily Serna as the arithmetician, both of which were in the original show, but the presenter Richard Morecroft was replaced by comedian Michael Hing in this version. Also, all the words in this series are checked by Collins Dictionary and not by Macquarie Dictionary as it was in the original show.

Two series of twelve episodes each were commissioned by SBS.
