Brainbox Rachel Riley sent Good Morning Britain fans into meltdown with her choice of dress on today's show (May 16).
"Anyone can work at it. There's this idea that literacy is more important than numeracy, but the research shows they're equally as important."
But it appears viewers were distracted by her plunging summer dress, as fans rushed to Twitter to discuss how "fit" she looked.
There's this myth that there's a maths brain.
One remarked: "@RachelRileyRR you looked super sexy on GMB in that dress... major fit."
Another tweeted: "How have I not realized how FIT Rachel Riley is? #GMB."
A third commented: "@RachelRileyRR is looking hot on @GMB #GoodMorningBritain this morning. Nice way to start the day I say lol."
Rachel tweeted about her slot on the show and the responses from her own followers were much more constructive.
One told her: "I actually used trigonometry a couple of weeks ago (after a refresh on GCSE Bitesize) for the first time in nearly 20 years. I think its things like trig that people find scary/pointless but as you said, focus on solving everyday maths issues to help prepare kids for adult life."
Another fan said: "Maths is both the lock and key to science, everyone needs maths!"
Rachel is dating former Strictly Come Dancing Pasha Kovalev, who quit the BBC show in February.
The dancer announced at the time that he's decided to leave the show after eight years, saying he's ready to "find a new challenge".
However, The Sun claimed that Pasha decided to part ways with the show because Countdown presenter Rachel feared becoming a victim of the show's so-called 'curse' and thought he was being "underpaid".
A source told the publication: "Rachel is adamant Pasha is being paid far less than his hours deserve. Strictly has a particularly gruelling schedule and when you weigh that up against his pay packet, she feels it’s not worth it.
"Pasha isn’t one of the more unionist dancers who push back at producers when they’re working 18 hour days. He just sees it as part of the job."
