Countdown’s Rachel Riley reveals surprise football ‘dream come true’


COUNTDOWN star Rachel Riley hosted the Treble 99 reunion game at Old Trafford this weekend.

The Countdown starlet isn’t shy about her love for Manchester United – something she made very clear in her most recent Insta post. 

Rachel Riley hosted the Treble ’99 Reunion Game in Old Trafford on Sunday, making a “childhood dream” come true. 

Paying tribute to the team’s mega win back in 1999, the game was a star-studded event. 

The winning team, including David Beckham, reunited once again to take on the football legends of Bayern Munich. 

Sir Alex Ferguson returned to the sidelines – his first time managing a team since 2013 – to take the reigns on the big day. 

Man U fans were delighted to see the team utterly blast Bayern Munich at the match, winning five-nil. 

Money from the ticket sales, adding up to over £1.5million, went to a children’s charity in Manchester. 

The 33-year-old mathematical guru took to social media to show off her superfan status, posting snaps from the football field. 

Labelling it a “Special, special day”, she gushed about the epic win: “Amazing to see the legends fire five past Bayern.”

In the comment section, her 389,000 followers started a heated debate over the strength of her favourite team. 

One user wrote: “Good job today!”

Though a second added: “Stunning, shame you’re a Man U supporter though!”

While a third chipped in: “Smart, beautiful and a Man United fan, I’m in heaven!”

Taking after her dad, the blonde beauty has been a lifelong supporter of the Mancunian footie team. 

Her hosting gig comes just days after she broke the news that she is pregnant with her first child. 

No doubt, she’ll raise a miniature Man U supporter to keep the family tradition going.
