A rather embarrassing eight-letter word popped up on Countdown today

*immature laughter*

TODAY ON COUNTDOWN, this eight-letter word appeared on the board.

That Rachel Riley then opted to use the phrase “pop up unexpectedly” when tweeting about the incident just makes the whole thing even better.

The word caused some viewers to choke on their tea.

While others got the word themselves and were only delighted.

And, of course, there were a whole load of double entendres.

Alright, leave it out.
