Rachel Annabelle Riley[2] (born 11 January 1986[3]) is an English television presenter best known for co-presenting Countdown on Channel 4 and The Gadget Show on Channel 5. In January 2009, she replaced Carol Vorderman as the co-host of Countdown doing the letters and numbers selection and mathematics solutions. She hosts the show alongside Nick Hewer.[4] Riley has co-presented over 1,000 episodes of Countdown. She is currently participating in the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Riley was encouraged to apply for the Countdown position by her mother. She did not have an ambition to be a television presenter, but decided to apply because she was interested in the numbers part of the game. Riley was chosen from more than a thousand applicants despite having no television experience. In an article for BBC News, she said, "There's only one cool maths job around and I was lucky enough to get it so I'm absolutely thrilled". She began presenting Countdown alongside Jeff Stelling from 12 January 2009. In an interview in August 2009 she revealed that it had been difficult for her to step into Vorderman's shoes, and that she had even been criticised by certain Countdown viewers for getting some of the maths puzzles wrong. Her 1,000th episode was shown on Tuesday 25 June 2013, where she was presented with a signed shirt and a bunch of flowers by Manchester United player Ryan Giggs[8][9] who had celebrated his 1,000 football pitch appearance the same year.
