Episode C13

From Countdown

Episode C13 was broadcast on 8 January 2020, as part of Series 2 of Celebrity Countdown.

Sabrina Grant played Anna Richardson, with Anna Richardson winning 46 – 28, in a 13-rounder. The Dictionary Corner guest was Rufus Hound, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

NOTE: Grant did solve the conundrum in Round 3 correctly, but was not given points due to taking too much time. In Round 5, Grant's declaration of TERMITE was after the time, but Nick Hewer let it "sneak through". Rachel Riley also offered Richardson an explicit choice between the vowel O and the consonant T as her final letter in Round 7. Hound provided the solution to Round 12, though he admitted that "Susie wrote it down and put it in front of me".
