We’re no stranger to seeing a naughty word or two pop up on Countdown, but we certainly weren’t expecting this eight-letter word to come from Myleene Klass!
In an episode due to air today (28th), Myleene joins Susie Dent in Dictionary Corner again, and managed to offer up an impressive eight-letter word, beating the other contestants who had managed the seven-letter ‘ghosted’.
The problem was, it was a “rude one,” as she told the show’s host Nick Hewer.
That rude word? GOBSH**E. Yep, gobsh**e.
We’re not sure who (or what) we love more – Myleene herself, or the fact that these things ACTUALLY happen on the show. Talk about a Countdown conundrum!
However, despite Myleene getting the giggles, expert Susie Dent confirmed that the 37-year-old’s word was definitely correct, explaining that it’s “chiefly Irish” and “vulgar slang.”
