Myleene Klass turns the air blue in tonight's Countdown when she comes up with an unexpected eight-letter 'Irish' word.

The former Hear'Say singer spelled out "gobsh**e" after the Channel 4 show's two contestants had both put forward the same seven-letter word, "ghosted".

Klass, who has also worked as a model, TV presenter and released several classical music albums, told host Nick Hewer: "I got a rude one. It's an eight... gobsh**e."

But the word received the seal of approval from veteran dictionary corner expert Susie Dent, who confirmed it was "chiefly Irish" and "vulgar slang".

Countdown is on every weekday at 2.10pm on Channel 4.
