Host shocks after spelling out rude word live on TV

A TV host has caused a ruckus online after she spelt out a hilariously rude word live on TV.

British Channel 4 TV show Countdown, which is a show that involves number puzzles and word jumbles, broadcast the awkward moment this week, showing host Rachel Riley cheekily smirking.

Rachel Riley had Twitter in meltdown with the hilarious word puzzle rearrangement, where one contestant spelt ‘squirt’ out of the nine letters on the board.

When the camera flashed to Rachel standing at the board, she had actually rearranged the letters to say ‘OK, I squirt’.

A slight giggle could be heard in the studio, with Rachel sheepishly smiling at the camera.

And while they moved on pretty fast, viewers didn’t miss a beat.

“Channel 4, channel four, channel filth,” one person said.

“That's brilliant,” another person said.

Channel 4 also showed that they’re not afraid to have some fun, by mocking themselves on Tiwtter.

“We'll just leave this here...,” they tweeted, alongside a picture of Rachel and the rude board.

Rachel Riley also posted a picture of the hilarious moment, writing “just another day at the office” beside it.
