‘Can we cut that out!’ exclaims the star of 8 Out of 10 Cats, referring to Jimmy Carr’s awkward introduction.


‘Can we cut that out!’ says the star of 8 Out of 10 Cats, who is mortified by Jimmy Carr’s awkward introduction.

On Friday, Channel 4 premiered an all-new season of 8 OUT OF 10 CATS DOES COUNTDOWN, but it wasn’t off to a good start for guest team captain Roisin Conaty, who was desperate to have her first interview with host Jimmy Carr “edited out.”

On Friday night, Jimmy Carr joined Rachel Riley and Susie Dent to host an all-new episode of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

In addition to the return of team captain Jon Richardson, stand-in captain Roisin Conaty, and guests Rob Beckett and Kiri Pritchard-McLean, comedian Huge Davies joined Susie in Dictionary Corner on the Channel 4 comedy.

Roisin was left red-faced by her awkward introduction, so the hilarity didn’t take long to start.

Jimmy moved on to Roisin and Kiri after welcoming Jon and Rob to the show.

As applause erupted in the studio, Jimmy said, “Up against them this evening is guest team captain Roisin Conaty.”

Roisin chose to make a horns gesture with her hands in response to the applause, before holding her head in shame.

Jimmy and Rob, two other comedians, quickly picked up on it and began imitating the hand gesture.

“I’m sorry, Rosh,” Jimmy apologized as he raised his hands in the air.

“What the heck is a cowabunga?”

Roisin burst out laughing, pleading with Jimmy, “Can we edit that out?”

Roisin burst out laughing as she claimed the gesture was unintentional because she was “panicking,” leaving the audience in stitches once more.

“What was that?” Jimmy inquired once more as Roisin explained, “It was meant to be ironic.”

“Is that a mouse?” the After Life and Man Down actress inquired.

“There was something on that curtain, but it wasn’t a mouse,” she continued, before going on to explain what happened next: “Then this happened.”

“Can we edit that out?” Roisin inquired off-camera to the production crew, but Jimmy’s teasing didn’t stop there.

“If it embarrasses me, I’ll just try to distract attention… is that a mouse?” Jimmy joked.

Jimmy continued with the script on his card, attempting to move the conversation along.

“Roisin says she’d be a country singer if she weren’t a comedian.”

“I’m sure comedy’s loss would be country music’s gain if you did that, Roisin.”

The remark elicited laughter, but Roisin saw an opportunity to keep the jokes going and made a sarcastically held hand gesture.
