'Countdown' filming stopped due to contestant's chest hair

By
Filming was stopped on the afternoon game show Countdown because a contestant was showing too much chest hair.

In the instalment that will air on December 3, a 24-year-old student chose to wear a V-neck top.

However, chest hair was visible which prompted production staff to pause filming to tell the contestant to cover up, reports the Kirkintilloch Herald.

The contestant recalled: "Having been instructed to either wear a shirt or V-neck, I opted for the latter - which was funny because on set there was a complaint that I was showing too much flesh and that my chest hair might offend some people.

"I had to have my T-shirt taped so it held up higher."

He added: "The filming was great fun and meeting the Countdown team was brilliant."
