A very WET Innuendo Bingo with Rachel Riley off’ve Countdown Early career During a university vacation, Riley considered a career in the financial sector, and completed an internship at Deutsche Bank in the City of London.
The experience put her off: although already familiar with male-dominated environments in the field of mathematics, she found the extreme behaviour of city traders wearing, and not being a “morning person” she also disliked the early morning train commute. Her maths degree helped her get a job performing statistical analysis for a price comparison start-up company. Riley also briefly considered doing a postgraduate degree, a master’s degree in concrete, being attracted by the intersection of maths, tensile strength and civil engineering. Strictly Come Dancing From September 2013, Riley appeared in the eleventh series of the BBC One ballroom dancing programme Strictly Come Dancing with professional dancing partner Pasha Kovalev. She was eliminated in Week 6 of the show, on 3 November, after losing out in the dance-off against Abbey Clancy and Aljaž Škorjanec.
According to Riley she lacked a natural talent for performing, so instead sought to frame each dance as that of a character. For the first five weeks, Riley suffered from stage fright, commenting that “As soon as the music would start, I would have a fuzzy brain and it was like an out-of-body experience”; after seeing a cognitive behavioural therapist she was able to control her breathing, and so was only able to truly enjoy the show for what proved to be her final appearance. Countdown On Countdown, Riley replaced the long-serving Carol Vorderman. Like Vorderman, Riley’s specific role was to handle the placement of letters and numbers in the anagram puzzle and arithmetical problem rounds, in addition to solving the arithmetic problem if the contestants have been unable to do so. Riley’s appointment to Countdown was announced at the same time as the announcement of a new main host, Jeff Stelling, replacing Des O’Connor; the duo of Stelling and Riley were in place for the new series beginning in January 2009.
Although she had no ambition to be a television presenter, she was encouraged to apply by her mother, and decided to do so because she was interested in the numbers part of the game. Having beaten 1,000 applicants for the role, she commented “There’s only one cool maths job around and I was lucky enough to get it so I’m absolutely thrilled”. Riley takes the role of solving the numbers round so seriously that if she cannot solve it on the show, she takes it away with her to finish, commenting “I’m really OCD about it. I have to get it. I like puzzles – that’s what I do, that’s why I applied for the job, that’s why I used to watch Countdown when I was younger. I like solving stuff.” She has attributed this compulsion to a nervy and flustered start in the role which resulted in her making some errors, although she says she has since got the hang of it and the task is now a matter of routine. In contrast, on account of her “really immature sense of humour” she has some difficulty in maintaining her composure during the words round whenever rude words appear.
