Countdown viewers stunned as contestants dealt very X-rated conundrum anagram

Countdown is known for its incredibly awkward moments, more so now it has a cruder spin-off, 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

But the regular Channel 4 show more than punches above its weight and often clipses its spin-off in the awkwardness stakes.

And a recent episode proved just that, as contestants were faced with an anagram that left those in the studios sniggering and viewers at home laughing out loud.

During the show, the two brainboxes competing to win the show are challenged with unscrambling the famous anagram in order to claim victory.

Much to the delight of social media, the anagram the contestants were presented with was "SLEAZYNOB".

Leo managed to claim the top spot, knocking Martyn off as he revealed the word to be "lazybones".

Shortly after the word popped up on the screen, viewers flocked to social media to share the moment.

One viewer tweeted: "How was this the conundrum in regular Countdown & not Cats Does Countdown?!"

While a second asked: "Where's Sean and Jon?!" acknowledging Sean Lock and Jon Richardson who appear on the 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown version.

A third added: "Today's genuine daytime #Countdown conundrum… [crying] with tears of joy. Nearly dropped my brew."

"My immature ass was LIVING for today's Countdown Conundrum @C4Countdown @Channel4," exclaimed a fourth.

Mathematician Rachel Riley was smirking when the word appeared.

Last month, she offered a sultry grin when the word "orgasmed" was revealed after comedian Shappi Khorsandi revealed the eight-letter word.

Just days before, she was left red-faced went he word "blowie" was unveiled.

Shappi was on hand to insist that a blowie was in fact a species of fly.

As Rachel struggled to hold her laughter in, Shappi said: "It's a fly, a kind of fly."

Susi Dent was on hand to prove that the word was in fact a colloquial term for a blowfly.

Other episodes of Countdown have seen Rachel spell words out including "phallus," "w***ers", "erection" and "squirter".

Countdown airs weekdays on Channel 4 at 2.10pm.
