Rachel Riley red-faced as Countdown fans left gobsmacked by filthy spellings

Viewers find it hilarious when cheeky words come up on Countdown, and they were spoiled today as two rude examples came up.

Rachel Riley was wide-eyed in shock over the choice spellings, which included "pornier" and "rideable".

New quizmaster Anne Robinson was confused by the choices.

“Rideable” was an eight-letter creation by Dictionary Corner, which on today’s show featured writer Grace Dent alongside Susie Dent.

Later in the episode they came up with the seven-letter “pornier.”

Grace said: “We have a seven, pornier, which I don’t quite understand what it is.

Susie explained calmly to Grace: “It means more pornographic.”

Rachel raised her eyebrows in mock shock, while Anne thanked Susie for the helpful explanation.

The former Weakest Link host said: “Yes, that makes sense. Thank you.”

Viewers rushed to tweet about the saucy word choices.

One wrote: “Today’s Countdown was nothing but filth.”

While another viewer penned: “Countdown with 'Pornier'

“I think we need the show pre-recorded or put on past the watershed” suggested another.

Rachel said recently she would like to try and break Carol Vorderman’s record for time on the show.

Carol managed an incredible 26 years before Rachel took over, back in 2008.

Stunning blonde Rachel says she’ll be on the show for as long as they’ll keep her for.

She told MailOnline about her ambitions to beat the record: "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.”
