Rachel Riley’s face is a picture as ‘blowie’ is given as an answer on Countdown

RACHEL Riley’s face was priceless on Countdown last night as she spelt out “blowie” on the board.

Comedian Shappi Khorsandi offered the word on the Channel 4 show, insisting that it was a kind of fly.

Her six-letter answer raised eyebrows around the studio but Rachel managed to stop herself from giggling as she put the word on the board,

“It’s a fly,” Shappi said.

“A kind of fly.”

It was up to Susie Dent on Dictionary Corner to confirm the comedian was right and a blowie is the informal term for a blowfly.

Clever Shappi one-upped the other two contestants who only came up with five-letter words including ‘bowel’ and ‘whale’.

Last year Countdown was forced to blur out the word “w***ers” after it appeared on the board – leaving Rachel in hysterics.

The quiz show previously took an awkward turn after an embarrassed-looking Rachel  assembled the words ‘c*m budgie’ on the famous board.

Other previous rude words on the show include a**e’, ‘clit’, ‘shags’, ‘no panties’, ‘vaginas’, ‘m***e’, ‘todgers’, ‘noshed’, ‘teabags’, ‘t**t’ and ‘OK I squirt’.
