Who is on the Show?

As always, Jimmy Carr will host the 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown Christmas special.

Captains Sean Lock and Jon Richardson will take their usual seats while Susie Dent and Rachel Riley will be doing all of the serious bits – AKA numbers, words and staying sober!

Special guests include Peep Show’s David Mitchell and the instantly recognisable Joe Wilkinson – the bearded comedian who looks like he doesn’t want to be there and could very well be homeless.

There’s also Kathy Burke (Perry from Kevin and Perry), comedian James Acaster, and plenty of pointless presents flying around the screen.
