Episode Cats32, billed as 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 6, Episode 5 was a special episode broadcast on 6 February 2015, as part of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 6.

8 Out of 10 Cats regulars Sean Lock and Jon Richardson were the contestants, along with Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of Bob Mortimer, winning by 30 – 28 in an 8-rounder and they won a Countdown swingball set.

Rachel Riley was, as ever, the arithmetician, and Joe Wilkinson "helped" her out from round 5 onwards. The Dictionary Corner guest was Jack Whitehall, and the lexicographer was Susie Dent.

This episode was the last time Joe Wilkinson was an arithmetician. Although he appeared subsequently with Rachel such as the Christmas Specials for 2015 and 2016, as he did not present the solutions, this is also the most recent appearance of a male arithmetician as well.

In Round 7, the first R was out of place but it was not corrected and thus, it appeared "higher" than the other letters.

NOTE: In this version, both players' declarations were allowed, although points were only awarded for the best answer.
