Pictures: Man United’s Ryan Giggs surprises Countdown’s Rachel Riley on her 1000th show
Channel 4′s daytime quiz Countdown is a cult show in England, and the show’s assistant Rachel Riley got a huge surprise on her 1000th episode.
Riley, a Manchester United fan, was shocked when Ryan Giggs turned up on set and handed her a personalised Red Devils shirt.
Riley told reporters about the event:
I had no inkling that I had just filmed my 1,000th episode when Nick announced it on the show, and I was touched that the Countdown team had surprised me with the news. As [presenter] Nick [Hewer] continued, I thought they might have got me a bunch of flowers. But I nearly fell through the floor when Ryan Giggs suddenly appeared with some!
As a lifelong red, I’ve watched Giggsy rack up 1,000-plus appearances since I was five, so there couldn’t have been a more special way to celebrate mine.
Pictures of Ryan Giggs on Countdown can be seen below.
