Countdown new girl Rachel Riley turns up the heat in red mini

Wednesday September 23, 2009

It wasn't just vowels and consonants dominating the thoughts of Countdown viewers this week.

New maths whiz Rachel Riley - who replaced old favourite Carol Vorderman on the show in January - has been donning a series of sexy dresses as the programme looks to raise viewing figures.

The 23-year-old bombshell's sartorial choices this week have included a figure-hugging hot pink shift dress, followed on Tuesday by this French Connection number.

Since the Oxford graduate took over from Carol, the show's viewers have gone down from 1.3 million to 650,000.

And Rachel admits it hasn't been easy filling the shoes of brain box Carol.

"All I can do is do my best. I'm trying to be as good as I can, trying to develop my skills as a presenter."
