Series 86

From Countdown

Series 86 is the current series of Countdown and the last to feature Anne Robinson as presenter, with most editions presented by Colin Murray.

After announcing her immediate departure from the show on 2 May 2022, Robinson's last episode will air on 13 July 2022. Murray will temporarily take over from 14 July for at least 75 episodes, as announced on his Twitter feed. [1]. It remains to be known whether he or someone else will host, either temporarily or permanently, beyond this.

Susie Dent did not appear in the first three episodes, due to contracting COVID-19. Episode 7796 aired two minutes earlier due to live F1, so at 2:09 instead of 2:11.

Apterites Graham Harrison and Edward Byrne have appeared in this series, with fellow Apterite Damian McEvoy due to appear later in this series.
