Rachel Riley joined Nick Hewer for another round of Countdown this afternoon. Two contestants were in the studio racing against the clock to pit their wits against vowels, consonants and numbers. But during one letters game, the mathematician couldn’t suppress a snigger when a rude work came up on the board.
The current scoreboard stood at 66 to 44 and it was Sian’s turn to call out her letter requests.
“Can I start with a vowel please?” She asked Rachel and Rachel replied: “Thank you Sian, A.”
The next letter to appear was a consonant, R, followed by two more, S and Y.
A vowel was requested next and Rachel produced an E.
Rachel couldn’t help but notice what the letters spelt and giggled.
The contestants and Nick remained professional and continued.
Another vowel came next, U and a consonant was requested after which was an S.
Q and L were the last remaining letters and Nick called: “Stand by” before pressing the clock.
The words on the board were as follows: ARSYEUSQL.
After thirty seconds on the clock, the contestants produced their words.
Sian had a seven letter word while David had eight.
The words squares and squarely were offered and accepted.

Meanwhile, Nina Hossain who had joined Susie Dent in the Dictionary Corner offered an alternative word.
“Just a six, queasy?” The news anchor asked.
“Queasy, very nice,” Susie replied.
As for how the rest of the game played out, David was victorious.
He led the way with 95, while Sian had 65.
“David! See you Monday,” Nick said.
And he then asked whether Nina would be joining them once more – to which she said she would be delighted to.
Countdown airs weekday afternoons at 2.10pm on Channel 4.
