achel Riley enjoys spelling out rude words on "Countdown".

The 32-year-old TV presenter loves how people don't have to be "serious all the time" on the Channel 4 show.

She said: "I think it's the fun part of "Countdown". A lot of rude words, you'd only know they were rude if you had a dirty mind.

Rachel also takes part in comedy series "8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown" and enjoys how "sharp" all the panelists are.

She added to the Daily Star newspaper: "Everyone on it is so funny.
