Photoshopped Picture Of Rachel Riley Saying She'll 'Present Countdown Naked' Goes Viral

Photoshopped Picture Of Rachel Riley Saying She'll 'Present Countdown Naked' Goes Viral

As we know, the 2018 World Cup in Russia is well underway and everyone all over the world is getting very excited about seeing their team go all the way to the final, and England fans are no exception.

One person who appears to be especially keen to see them do well is Countdown's Rachel Riley- a photo of her in front of sign that promises she'll do the show naked if England win has been making the rounds has sent Twitter into a real frenzy.

Today, though, she dispelled the photo as a fake on Twitter, reposting it and joking that it was actually Nick Hewer, Countdown's host, who said that. At least, we hope she was joking.

Naturally, her rebuttal has been getting almost as much attention as the original photo, and people on the social media site have been having a lot of fun with it. Like this one, from historian/TV presenter Greg Jenner:

Thankfully, Rachel dispelled his theory almost instantly with a dose of good natured humour:

Plenty of other people have had their say about the whole thing, too. A few people made this obvious, but still amusing joke.

Others pointed out the obvious - the likelihood of it happening is very, very, very slim. We're not being defeatist, by the way, just realistic. Deep down, you know it's true.

Just last month, maths genius Riley and Sky Sports' Kirsty Gallacher the biggest ever payout on The Chase.

Taking on the notorious Chasers, the pair raked in £160,000 between them on behalf of the charity Soccer Aid, which raises money for Unicef UK.

A source told the Sun: "Everybody was amazed with their efforts. Most of the time celebs make a bit of a fool of themselves trying to take on the likes of Anne Hegerty and co.

"But Kirsty and Rachel absolutely destroyed the Chaser and went home with a massive pot of cash for a great cause. They were very pleased with themselves."

Though the payouts up for grabs are often bigger on the celebrity version of the show, no one has raked in such a large prize in over a thousand episodes.

Riley is an Oxford graduate who studied at Oriel College, where she earned an upper-second class (2:1) degree in maths. This led her towards fame on Countdown, where she replaced Carol Vorderman as the show's go-to numbers expert.
