The episode was the third this series to see the return of a live, socially distanced studio audience, in line with government guidelines, grouped by household and wearing masks. There was a further audience watching the record from a separate screening room.

Regular rounds include 'The Odd One Out' where teams must identify what links three of four people, objects or pictures, and 'Fill In The Blanks' where the panel must find the missing words in newspaper headlines.
