It’s two Carrs for the price of one tonight as Alan Carr appears as a guest team captain on a new series of the panel/game show mash-up.

While Jimmy Carr hosts as ever, Alan will be partnering Kevin Bridges, while resident team captain Jon Richardson will be with Cariad Lloyd. Joining Susie Dent in Dictionary Corner are Elis James and John Robins, most noted for their radio show on Radio X, while Susie Dent will be in charge of numbers, and Fabio will be… well, we don’t know exactly what yet.

The show is always great to watch – mainly because you always that little bit surprised that this format ended up working so well.

8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown is on Channel 4 at 21.00.
