Countdown want to axe Rachel – go figure!

Countdown's Rachel Riley

I'm about to launch a campaign to stop Channel 4 taking Countdown off the screen.

Sure, life wouldn't be the same for me without Rachel Riley giving out the letters and adding up the figures and showing off that trim figure of her own, plus a new dress every day.

If afternoon viewers are dropping away don't blame Rachel (I can't understand why she isn't in that list of the world's most beautiful women).

The real turn-off is presenter Nick Hewer who is out of his depth in a show like Countdown.

We need Patrick Kielty in there with Rachel to give the series a boost.
