Episode Cats31, billed as 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Series 6, Episode 4 was a special episode broadcast on 30 January 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 Romesh Ranganathan and Johnny Vegas who were their teammates, while Jimmy Carr reprised his role as the host.

The match saw Jon Richardson, with the assistance of Johnny Vegas, winning by 41 – 33 in a 7-rounder and they won a Countdown electric piano.

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

NOTE 1: In this version, both players' declarations were allowed, although points were only awarded for the best answer.

NOTE 2: The answer to the first teaser, hymnbook ☓ is not valid in the current version of the ODO as it is listed as two separate words.

A short segment of this episode was sampled in the 2 April 2020 episode of Jon Richardson and Lucy Beaumont's sitcom Meet the Richardsons.
