Rachel Riley holds back giggles as Countdown board spells out explicit phrase

Rachel Riley looked as if she was about to burst out laughing when the Countdown tiles spelled out a rather rude phrase.

The maths whizz, 36, was innocently standing by the board as she spotted that the list of vowels and consonants created the words "jiz" and "louder".

Wearing the slightest of smirks, Rachel looked as if she was fighting back the giggles as she held her tongue and ignored the cheeky words.

But the star, who looked stunning in an elegant floral dress, didn't allow the hilarious snafu to throw her off and pressed straight on with the show.

However, viewers also picked up on the funny moment and a few did not let it go by without commenting.

One person joked on Twitter that it was "naughty", while another teased that it was "very rude".

"Rachel Riley is a master of butter wouldn't melt mischief," quipped someone else.

Having rude words and phrases spelled out on TV is one of the hilarious hazards of the much-loved Channel 4 show.

Over the years there have been several crackers that have surprised viewers – and the presenters – and had them in fits of laughter, including words such as "phallus", "erection" and "orgasmed".

The rude words "a**wipe" and @gobs****" have even made an appearance in previous episodes.

Earlier this year, Rachel couldn't hold back the laughter after one of the contestants came up with the phrase "Up vaginas".
