British Gameshow Countdown asks: What word can you make using U,D,F,C,K,E?
March 25, 2010
Get you mind out of the gutter…although that was my first word too.
Numbers girl Rachel Riley cringed as the letters came up and host Jeff Stelling gave a wry smile.
However the two quiz entrants spared further blushes by digging out safe five letter words.
The full set of nine letters on the popular afternoon quiz also included A, G and O.
The contestants went for “caged” and “faced”.
And the Channel 4 programme, which marks its 5,000 edition tomorrow, was spared from further embarrassment when resident expert Susie Dent came up with two seven letter words – “dogface” and “dockage”.
The brain-game quiz show was made famous by Richard Whiteley and Carol Vorderman.
Since Whiteley’s death in 2005 hosts have included Des Lynam and Des O’Conner with blonde Riley replacing Vorderman last year.
That really brings me back to my youth and the Newlywed Show. When Ronin and I were kids, we didn’t have 250,000 channels to watch and complain that there was nothing on. So one of our staple shows was gameshows, like Password, Dating Game, 100,000 dollar pyramid and others. The funniest one is the Newlywed Game and you can see why…
Who doesn’t like it there?
