Rachel Riley says sweetest Valentine’s Day card ever was ‘worth the wait’

Rachel Riley was absolutely right when she said this super sweet Valentine’s Day card was worth the wait.

It may have been almost a month since the most romantic day of the year, but the Countdown host has just received a lovely surprise from one of her many admirers.

Taking to Instagram , the maths whizz revealed a cute card sent to her by one of her youngest fans, a little boy named Elliot, who she met on the set of the show last year.

Posing up for a selfie with the famous Countdown letters board in the background, Rachel revealed the card which had the words "You can count…" above a giant pink glitter heart.

Inside the message continued "…on me".

It was addressed to Rachel and signed "love from Elliot".

The former Strictly Come Dancing star, who is in a relationship with pro dancer Pasha Kovalev, also shared snaps from her first meeting with Elliot.

Standing off to the side, Rachel holds up a single red rose and another card as Elliot spells out his name on the board, before they pose up together for a sweet picture.


Sharing it with her fans, Rachel said: "When it’s true love they’re always there for you when you need them Thanks Elliot!

"A year may have passed since we met on set but our shared love of Countdown endures. Postman finally delivered my Valentine’s Day card today but it was worth the wait!"

"Watch out Pasha," one fan joked.

While another said: "That is definitely true love!"


And another commented: "Too cute, the wee fella has skills on the lady wooing front"

However, one of Rachel’s admirers was a little jealous.

They said: "I’ve been sending cards for years and you never mention it. Heart broken."
