From Natalie Cassidy to Mr Swallow, 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown often sees comedians carry out some convincing sketches. But series 18 episode 6 had viewers confused as to what really was the truth…
Harriet Kemsley and 8 Out of 10 regular Sean Lock were a duo on the show as father and daughter, but are they really related?
8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown: Meet Harriet Kemsley
Harriet Kemsley comes from Canterbury, Kent and was born on June 21st 1987 making her 32 years old in 2019.
The 8 Out of 10 Cats guest married fellow stand-up comedian Bobby Mair in 2017. The wedding was featured on Bobby & Harriet Get Married, their own reality TV show which can be watched on Comedy Central on demand.
Before getting married in 2017, the pair had their fair share of issues as a couple including Bobby’s infidelity in 2015. But rather than letting it get the better of their relationship, Bobby and Harriet turned their troubles into material for their stand-up shows.
Harriet is also an actress who has appeared in Bonobo and The Girl Whisperer. Before going into comedy she also studied English literature at Kingston University.

Is Harriet Sean Lock’s daughter?
No, it turns out that the idea of Harriet being Sean’s daughter was just a sketch for the show.
Harriet’s real parents, Fiona and Graeme, were the ones who suggested she go into stand-up comedy as a career.
During 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Harriet and Sean clearly enjoyed pretending to be related with Harriet joking: “You need to calm down, think of what mum would say”.
