Episode 7290

From Countdown

Episode 7290 was scheduled to be broadcast on 24 March 2020, as part of Series 82.

Mike Nevins played John Kelly, with Mike Nevins winning 63 – 60. The Dictionary Corner guest was Mark Pougatch, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was pulled from the schedule prior to broadcast due to its opening diatribe discussing what happened to social media accounts after their subject's deaths, which would have been insensitive in light of the COVID-19 pandemic which broke out after it was recorded. It was replaced by a repeat of "The Secret Life of the Zoo".
