Rachel Riley struggles to keep a straight face after she spots a VERY rude word hidden in the letters on Countdown

And Countdown star Rachel Riley struggled to keep her composure during Tuesday’s show, after she spotted a rude word hidden among the letters in the hilarious challenge.

The presenter, 34, grimaced at the camera after placing the letters on the board, but managed to regain a straight face as the game continued.

Oops! Rachel Riley struggled to keep her composure during Tuesday’s Countdown, after she spotted a rude word hidden among the letters during the latest challenge

In the final letters game of the show, contestant Tony requested a selection for the board, and first asked Rachel for a vowel.

Rachel – who filmed the show while she was still pregnant with her baby daughter Maven – read out the letters as she placed them on the board, beginning with a U.

She then followed with several other letters including C, N and T, before turning to the camera with a grimaced expression.

Whoops! The presenter – who filmed the show before giving birth – spotted the cheeky word hidden on the board, and simply grimaced at the camera before the game continue

Despite the clear presence of a rude word on the board, Rachel returned to a straight face so the game could continue, with the cheeky reference going unnoticed by the show’s contestants and host Nick Hewer.

Of course this is not the first time that a rude word has accidentally popped up on the Countdown board, and last year Rachel took to Instagram to share a selection of the cheekiest words to pop up on the board.

Rachel welcomed her first child with husband Pasha Kovalev in December, and revealed that their baby daughter was two weeks overdue.

The numbers guru made her pregnancy news public last May, putting the Countdown set to good use for the announcement.

Posing in front of a board of letters spelling ‘r tiny mate’, an anagram for ‘maternity’, she placed her hands on her blossoming baby bump.

She captioned the snap: ‘Pash and I have a conundrum for you…you have till December to work it out! We’re over the moon excited.’

The mathematician started dating former Strictly Come Dancing professional Pasha when they met and were partnered on the show five years ago in 2013, they went official in 2014.

Rachel ended her 16-month marriage to James Gilbert three months into the series. They had met while studying at the University of Oxford.

Pasha and Rachel tied the knot in a secret Las Vegas ceremony this summer.
