Countdown viewers were left shocked when two cheeky words made it into the show in today’s episode. Rachel Riley was among those left wide-eyed over the spelling in the latest edition hosted by new quizmaster Anne Robinson.
The show today featured some rude words when it aired on Channel 4.
Both ‘rideable’ and ‘pornier’ were among those spelt out on the popular quizzing show.
Dictionary Corner featured writer Grace Dent alongside Susie Dent in today’s show.
At one point the pair managed to land an eight-letter word on the show with “rideable”.
Later in the episode, Dictionary Corner also came up with “pornier”.
Grace said: “We have a seven, pornier, which I don’t quite understand what it is.
Susie then explained: “It means more pornographic.”
Rachel raised her eyebrows at the choice of words, while Anne weighed in with her thoughts.
The new Countdown host said: “Yes, that makes sense. Thank you.”
Following the episode, some viewers took to social media to discuss the unusual choices.
One fan penned: “Today’s #Countdown was nothing but filth.”
Another added: “#countdown with ‘Pornier’
“I think we need the show pre-recorded or put on past the watershed.”
Elsewhere, Rachel opened up about wanting to star in Countdown for longer than her predecessor Carol Vorderman.
Carol presented on the show for 26 years before Rachel took over in 2008.
Now the former Strictly Come Dancing star has admitted she’ll be staying on the show for as long as they’ll have her.
When asked about this by MailOnline, she said: “As long as they’ll have me!
“I’m halfway there already. She did 26 years when I took over.
“I love it and I’m really lucky that it brings me other opportunities, and it’s not every day so I’ve been able to have loads of family time.”
“It’s really fun and I’m really good friends with Susie who I’ve worked with all this time and the team behind the scenes are brilliant.”
Countdown airs on weekdays on Channel 4 at 2.10pm.
