And the word in question? That’ll be ‘vaginas’ (stop giggling at the back).
One person not laughing was host Nick Hewer, who kept a straight face as he asked Dictionary Corner if they could better it, to which guest Jimmy Osmond said: “I think that about does it. We have ‘saving’… not nearly as interesting.”
Remaining straight-faced, Nick quickly said: “I think we’re happy enough now we’ll move on.”
The daytime Channel 4 show has treated us to an array of amusing words of late.
In April, Rachel’s face pretty much said it all as she spelled out the word ‘squirter’ on the ‘Countdown’ board.
Prior to that, one memorable episode saw Dictionary Corner’s Susie Dent gleefully pronounce “shithead” as a possible answer in one round, while a month earlier, ‘vibrator’ also left Rachel giggling.
Things also took a naughty turn when Rachel’s boyfriend and former ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ partner Pasha Kovalev joined Dictionary Corner, and left his girlfriend red-faced as he declared “phallus” as an answer during one round.
