Series 87

From Countdown

Series 87 is the current series of Countdown. It began 23 January 2023, following Championship of Champions XVI, and is expected to conclude in June. It is the third series to feature Colin Murray as host, and the first full series to feature him in the hosting role.

On 11 January 2023, on Steph's Packed Lunch, it was officially announced that Murray was the new permanent host. He is understood to be on a two-year contract, retaining his role until at least the end of 2024.

Apterites Peter Burke, Cillian McMulkin and Toby Rogers have so far appeared in this series; Burke won the last five heat games of the previous series and carried over his unbeaten run until Episode 7939. McMulkin notably tied the all-time record score of 154 points in his fifth appearance.
