Steph McGovern catches out Countdown star Susie Dent with word 'no one understood'


Steph McGovern, 38, was surprised when she got one up on Countdown’s Susie Dent, 55, after she failed to recognise a word during a game of “word up” on her show Steph’s Packed Lunch. Susie looked stumped when Steph delivered the unique phrase that she revealed originated from Middlesborough.

“This is a Middlesborough phrase that I say, that no one understood when it happened to me,” the host giggled before reading aloud the statement.

“I fell off a tarzie into a beck – what happened to me?”

The camera panned onto a clueless Susie, who wasn’t too sure.

“I don’t know what a tarzie is!” she complained.

Recalling the moment, Susie remembered: “My boss said, ‘I think it would be a really good thing to do,’ and there were loads of us who rotated and it just wasn’t something I thought I wanted to do.

“You know me, Steph, I don’t like being above the radar, so I said no.”

Susie told Steph and her viewers what it took for her to change her mind.

“I was eventually persuaded, thank goodness because I love it,” she shared.

“Thank god Rula Lenska had big hair is all I can say, because I kept trying to hide behind it.”

Steph went on to ask: “What convinced you to do it in the end?”

The lexicographer responded: “He said to me it would be very good for my job.

“Oh, it was kind of a threat!” Steph remarked, before Susie agreed: “Yep, but I’m really glad that I did.”

Steph’s Packed Lunch continues weekdays at 12:30pm on Channel 4 followed by Countdown at 2.10pm.
