Susie Dent’s private life – co-star pals, heartbreak, and a hidden family – is recounted.

Susie Dent, Countdown’s in-house clever clogs, is a familiar face on our screens, but what else do we know about her?

Susie Dent is best known for her role as the super-smart lexicographer on Channel 4’s Countdown, but do you know much about her personal life?

The Brinkwire has gone behind the scenes of the bright TV star’s life to find out more.

We’ve discovered that, despite spending a lot of time learning new words, she also has two children and co-star friendships to keep her occupied.

Let’s take a look at what else goes on in the life of one of television’s smartest but most private women…

Susie Dent first appeared on the show in 1992 and has since become a fixture of the Channel 4 show’s iconic Dictionary Corner.

Along with Rachel Riley and new host Anne Robinson, the star is still part of the current Countdown lineup.

Rachel began working on the show in 2009 and is also a part of the spin-off show 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown with Susie.

Off-screen, Susie and Rachel are close friends, with Susie describing Rachel as “amazing.”

“Rachel is amazing, and Nick Hewer is amazing!” she once said. “It was a difficult time at first, having a complete change of personnel, and I was quite nervous about it.”

“She was brilliant from the beginning, I admire her work, and she is also incredibly kind,” says the author.

“Plus she’s a lot of fun! She’s a great friend to have, and I’m glad that comes across on both shows,” Susie added.

“It’s cliche to say that we’re all one big family, but it’s true!”

Susie and Paul Atkins, who had been married for 20 years, divorced earlier this year.

The couple is believed to have met in the 1990s and married in 2001, but have struggled in recent years to keep their relationship on track.

Paul is a primary school teacher based in Oxford, according to reports.

“It’s obviously a very sad situation,” a source told The Sun at the time.

“She has continued to work in all aspects of her job and is simply trying to make the best of a heartbreaking situation.”

Susie and her teacher ex-boyfriend “did everything they could” to keep their marriage together, according to reports.

“Clearly,” the source added.
