Countdown star Anne Robinson was interviewed on Carol Vorderman’s BBC Radio Wales show at the weekend. The new host of the Channel 4 quiz show scolded the radio presenter for not letting her co-star Nathan Sussex get a word in during their chat, as they compared notes on the popular programme.

“Who is your co-host?” Anne asked Carol towards the end of their conversation.

“I’m Nathan, I’m here Anne.

“I’ve got a cutting-edge question…” he added.

“You must ask it… she’s not given you a chance to say anything,” Anne remarked.

“I’m enjoying the convo. It’s lovely,”(sic) Nathan went on to say.

“Are you learning any new words on Countdown? Are there any words that have surprised you?” he asked.

Carol, 60, famously appeared in the first series of Countdown in 1982 with original host, the late Richard Whiteley.

She continued to appear as a regular for 26 years.

Anne took the helm last month, following the departure of former host Nick Hewer.

During her chat with her predecessor, she said it was “really lovely” to speak to the former star, who she quipped probably knew more about the show than she did.

Anne went on to say that presenting the show was a little harder than it looked.

“It’s a show that looks very easy. I think the first few shows I’m quite stiff.

“But I think now, I am endlessly curious, so I’ve started to talk to the contestants and talk to them each round, so it’s become great fun.”

“I hope you have many happy days on there,” Carol warmly added.

Following the broadcast, the radio DJ took to Twitter to thank everyone who had been involved in the show.

Two pictures of herself accompanied the post.

True to form, the mum-of-two looked sensational for her stint on the airwaves.

She could be seen in a figure-hugging jumpsuit with a large belt that showcased her slim waist.

“Think I’ve got my weight lifting belt on today,” she joked, in view of her 463,300 followers.

She went on to say that she’d been “cracking up” at stories her co-star had been sharing on the show.

“Live on my show BBC Radio Wales…cracking up laughing with @natsus telling stories of getting stuck in clothes…omg the tales,”(sic) she tweeted following by laughing emojis.
