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’.
