Episode 7612

From Countdown

Episode 7612 was broadcast on 8 October 2021, as part of Series 84.

Ahmed Mohamed played Kerry Holden, with Ahmed Mohamed winning 112 – 66. The Dictionary Corner guest was Dr Phil Hammond, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

Channel 4's technical failures continued in this episode: once again, the episode was missing subtitles, but in addition, the second advert break was cued in too early, omitting the teaser, the clue, and the break bumper. Luckily, however, Robinson reprised the clue after the break. The morning rerun of this episode which aired on 2 November 2021 retained this same issue.
