Episode 7577

From Countdown

Episode 7577 was broadcast on 20 August 2021, as part of Series 84.

Jeremy Slaney played Shireen Ahmed, with Jeremy Slaney winning 95 – 56. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jeremy Thompson, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

The episode was billed as Rachel Riley's 3,000th episode, with Pasha Kovalev presenting her a bouquet of flowers and her daughter Maven making an appearance at the start of the programme.

Thompson provided the solution in Round 9, and Ahmed yielded her Round 14 pick over to Riley.

NOTE: The conundrum is illegal, as SNOWCRETE is also a valid solution.
