Countdown viewers in hysterics over Susie Dent’s X-rated answer: ‘Absolute filth!’
Those tuning in were left in hysterics when the Dictionary Corner star revealed that you could spell out “s***head” from the letters that had been chosen.
She told viewers: “I apologise for this one in advance, it is in the dictionary.”
“We’re only saying this because it gets you one letter further, but it’s s***head, I apologise.”
The show’s host Nick Hewer was left red-faced when Susie revealed her chosen answer for the spelling round, as he warned: “Susie wash your mouth out with soap!”

Meanwhile, Rachel Riley could not stop laughing at the 52-year-old’s suggestion and Nick’s reaction to the rude offering. But, she still went on to spell the word out on the board.
And, it wasn’t just the Channel 4 presenters who were left in hysterics, viewers at home were also amused by her answer.
Many took to social media to comment on her remark, with one user joking: “@Channel4 @susie_dent @C4Countdown I blame the 8 out of 10 Cats crowd. They're a bad influence.”
While another added: “@Channel4 @C4Countdown @susie_dent Classic!! (My 8 year old spotted that word too! But as Susie did I had to let him have it. Haha).”
