Countdown presenter Nick Hewer has revealed that Colin Murray will step in to replace him on the gameshow while he 'shields at home' during lockdown.
The 'Countdown' host came under scrutiny recently when she wore a top that claimed the Labour MP is a 'racist endeavour.'
The presenter has said she shared a bedroom with her mother and older brother and sister.
The contestant looked pleased with himself as Rachel Riley spelled out the explicit word on the board.
The 'Countdown' presenter is backing a campaign to block trolls after noticing the affect stress had on her unborn child.
A Countdown contestant is being praised by viewers for winning a round of the Channel 4 gameshow by spelling the word “hentai”.
The happy couple shared a picture from Sin City, where they tied the knot at the weekend.
Countdown's Rachel Riley has said she was moved to tears after her friend, comedian Katherine Ryan, offered public support to her in fighting back against anti-semitic online trolls.
The Countdown star is embroiled in an online row with the Scottish former MP over antisemitism.
It’s an 18-month old clip but viewers are suddenly going nuts for Rachel Riley after realising she went X-rated for an episode of Countdown – and all before the watershed. The 31-year-old was sporting a hint of nipple after opting to go braless in a tight-fitting pink dress in a throwback clip of the Channel 4 letters and numbers game show. Only last week, her boyfriend, Pasha Kovalev, who was sitting in Dictionary Corner with expert Susie Dent, left her red in the face after spelling out the word ‘Phallus’, a term for a penis.
Ricky Tomlinson has sensationally claimed that the late Countdown host Richard Whiteley was a government spy who helped to get him sent to prison. The Royle Family star was a plasterer before he embarked on a career in comedy and was jailed back in 1973 after having organised the first national building workers’ strike. Tomlinson, 77, is adamant that a documentary that aired on ITV on the night of his trial titled ‘Red Under the Bed’ and presented by the Countdown legend – who died in 2005 – and Woodrow Wyatt, persuaded members of the jury to put him away.
After watching her be generally amazing in the jungle, it feels like the nation’s fallen in love with Carol Vorderman all over again. This week, she opened up about her recent struggles with post-menopausal depression – and said that had it not been for her children, she would have considered suicide.
The 55-year-old is reportedly in talks with ITV and expected to be offered a six-figure sum to appear in the new series. ITV chiefs are also hoping that she will be the brains of the camp. Vorders joins a shortlist of possible I’m A Celeb cast-members, including Made In Chelsea’s Spencer Matthews and Lauren Hutton, Team GB Olympic gymnast Louis Smith, and former Strictly Come Dancing rivals Ola Jordan and Aliona Vilani.
