COUNTDOWN star Rachel Riley has been left-faced after being forced to spell out yet another rude word on the game show.

Rachel, 36, had placed a selection of vowels and consonants on the board before the contestants tried to make the longest word possible.

Once the 30 second ‘Countdown’ had bonged, host Colin Murray smirked and said: “Interesting first round…”

Contestant and current champ Quinn Bartlett then stifled a laugh as he told of his eight letter word, saying: “Urinates.”

Rachel, wearing a gorgeous red dress, did her best to keep straight-faced as she spelt out the word on the board.

Grinning, Colin confirmed in a sing-song voice: “Urinates is there!”

Quinn’s opponent, contestant Leome Francis, unfortunately lost the point, as the best he could come up with was the six letter word ‘purist’.

Fans found the scene amusing, with one joking on Twitter: “All 4 has always been a quality streaming service.”

This, however, is by no means the first time that Rachel has been left mortified during an episode of the Channel 4 game show.

In previous programmes, she has unwittingly spelt out words including ‘crapped‘, ‘vaginas‘ and even ‘p*****‘.

Meanwhile, last week it was confirmed that Les Dennis will be taking over as Countdown’s newest host for several weeks this August.

The announcement comes following Anne Robinson’s permanent departure.

The former Watchdog host had spent just over a year in the hot seat before quitting and said she had ‘stayed longer than she signed up for’.

Colin is currently holding the fort until Les starts his guest role on August 4. Colin will then return in late August and continue to host Countdown until the end of the year.

A permanent replacement for Anne has yet to be announced.
