Rachel Riley
Numbers queen and television presenter Rachel Riley, 27, is best known for co-presenting Countdown and The Gadget Show.

The Oxford graduate was an unknown star when she joined Countdown in January 2009, becoming the face and brains behind the letters and mathematics solutions on the show.

In June 2013, Rachel became a presenter on the Channel 5 programme The Gadget Show, co-hosting alongside Jason Bradbury.
