The task was presented on the table. The contestants had to recreate a well-known piece of art using all 100 memo squares. Each square had to be drawn one at a time and then stored in a new memo box. After the task was complete, the contestants' memo squares were rearranged in a 10x10 square.

Lucy Beaumont: Lucy recreated what she claimed to be Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, but didn't make a plan and got poppies and sunflowers confused. As her art didn't resemble anything, she received 1 point.

Sue Perkins: Sue recreated a recognisable picture of Leonardo da Vinci's Mona Lisa with sausage fingers. She received 5 points.
