Anne Robinson’s explosive arrival onto Countdown has already been causing friction, with a divide said to be tearing through the programme and Rachel Riley reportedly threatening to quit.

And according to body language expert Judi James, the tension is clear to see.

Last month, it was reported Rachel, who has been on the show for 10 years as the resident maths whizz, and Anne haven’t seen eye to eye since The Weakest Link tyrant took over from Nick Hewer who gave up his seat as Countdown host after a decade on the teatime show.

While neither Anne nor Rachel have remarked on the reports of a rift, Judi has devoured a moment fans felt seethed with ‘tension’.

And Judi agrees, explaining that the ‘pre-game banter between Rachel and Anne does appear to have a layer of perma-frost at its core’.

She told ‘Neither woman appears to be using the kind of encouragement and affirmation sounds and signals you’d normally expect in a small-talk chat, especially one on the TV, where the “chemistry” is normally more emphatic.
