Rachel Riley is the numbers expert on Channel 4’s long-running quiz show Countdown.

Rachel appeared in the 11th series of the popular BBC1 dance show Strictly Come Dancing and she was also the co-presenter of the Gadget Show on Channel 5.

She is a regular guest on the hit comedy panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats on Channel 4 and has competed in the special C4 mash-up shows 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Deal or No Deal. She has also appeared on BBC primetime shows I Love My Country, Britain's Brightest, The Guess List and Top Gear.

Rachel appeared in the series  24 Hours to Go Broke (Dave) where, teamed with comedian Joe Wilkinson, she was tasked with spending £10,000 in a day in Thessaloniki, Greece's second largest city. Given a strict set of rules on how to spend it, Rachel was thrown in to some bizarre and challenging situations involving vegetables, Greek Gods, and a fancy dress football match.

She is an avid Manchester United fan and presented a special show for MUTV alongside Ryan Giggs and Rio Ferdinand, as well as an exclusive live studio interview with Andy Cole.

Rachel has put her grey matter to the test by appearing on BBC1's Celebrity Mastermind and has also raised substantial funds for the charities she supports by using her brainpower to win on various celebrity editions of quiz shows including 5 Minutes to a Fortune (C4), Tipping Point: Lucky Stars (ITV), Pointless Celebrities (BBC1), The Bank Job (C4), Million Pound Drop (C4) and The Chase (ITV) and Fifteen to One (C4).

Rachel appeared in the Channel 4 Dispatches documentary ‘Kids Don't Count’ which asked how and why we are failing Britain's children when it comes to maths. Rachel visited a primary school in Bristol to help encourage the children to tackle their maths demons.

Rachel has a keen interest in promoting maths and science to young people. She makes frequent school visits and has been involved in a number of national numeracy initiatives.

Brought up in Thorpe Bay, Essex, Rachel graduated from Oriel College Oxford with a degree in Mathematics, covering Quantum Theory, Fluid Mechanics and Applied Maths and was made a scholar in 2006.
