Countdown presenter Rachel Riley, 34, took to Twitter and shared two drawings from her early years at school. The mum-of-one admitted she had “no idea” why certain projects were set for children in the 90s as she shared an odd throwback.

In view of her 669,000 followers, Rachel posted a flyer of herself from her school years with a “worrying” caption.

The drawing read: “For sale… nine-year-old girl. Enjoys all sports. Plays piano. Bakes. Sews.

“Rachel Riley… a bargain deal of £1,000 a month.”

The Countdown favourite admitted she was taken aback by the odd school project.

Rachel tweeted: “Absolutely no idea what the hell kind of school projects was set for us in the 90s.”

The cheeky post gained over 600 likes but was a cause of concern for one social media user.

The person in question replied: “This is really rather worrying!”

“Not quite the same messaging as Southend High School For Girls (SHSG)” Rachel responded.

The Channel 4 star followed up with another sketch she drew in her younger years.

It read: “I look like this. I am a girl.”

Rachel captioned the drawing, saying: “Oh God. There’s more.”

Other social media users flocked to comment on the Countdown star’s post.

“How early in the 90s are we talking? I do not remember a ‘make a flyer to sell yourself’ project in my school! P.S nine-year-old Rachel sounds like a nine-year-old me,” one person remarked.

Another person commented: “Multi-talented from an early age obviously! However, that was a bit steep for the 90s.”

“£1000? No, no, no, you’re priceless,” a third person quipped.

Meanwhile, Rachel recently dished on her daughter Maven’s first birthday plans this month.

The mathematician welcomed her baby girl with her husband Pasha Kovalev last year.

Rachel explained: “We’re just going to take her out for lunch – nothing exciting at all because we can’t. We’re going to go to my mum’s for Christmas. Obviously, they are so close.

“She’ll have a bit more time with her there where she can tear the place up, pull the baubles off the tree and terrorise the cat,” the mum-of-one added to HELLO!
