She has such a way with words...

UPDATE: Someone, most likely a student who's supposed to be revising for exams, went to the effort of recording the moment Myleene Klass got the word 'GOBSHITE' on Countdown yesterday. Well played, mystery student, well played.

Countdown has had its fair share of dodgy, dirty and downright rude words over the years, but while appearing on the popular Channel 4  show this week, Myleene Klass created a cracking curse word that all Irish people hold dear to the hearts.

Presented with the letters, O, S, I, E, B, T, G, H and D, the English singer, presenter and model opted to go for a "rude one" when she formed the eight-letter word 'GOBSHITE'.

Klass even got the thumbs up from Dictionary Corner's Susie Dent, who described the word as "chiefly Irish" and "vulgar slang".

The potty episode is due to air on Channel 4 at 14.10 today, but here's a sneak peek at the naughty word in question.

All we got was 'GET'. Some people just have the gift it seems.
