Channel 4 will air the new series of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown in May.

Filmed at the MediaCityUK in December, the show is now in its sixth series - even though it was originally commissioned as a one-off.

Jimmy Carr continues as host, alongside team captains, Sean Lock and Jon Richardson. Guests for this latest outing include Bill Bailey, Lee Mack, Kathy Burke and Rhod Gilbert.

It was commissioned for Channel 4 by Madeline Knight and it’s made by Endemol alongside ITV Studios - the producer of Countdown.
