In the middle of the ongoing saga, Countdown star, Susie Dent, appears to make a thinly veiled swipe on Twitter.

Social media fans drew attention to the bold timing of Susie’s tweet last night, Friday, March 10, with Gary Lineker stepping back from Match of the Day following a controversial ‘breach’ of guidelines.

The TV star regularly tweets a word of the day, choosing yesterday’s word to be ‘mumpsimuses’, which she defined as: “Those who insist they are right and apportion blame to others without looking at themselves.”

One fan responded: “❤️ you Susie. The beauty of words to encapsulate the feelings of lots of the nation!”

Another added: “Oooh. Susie is close to getting cancelled for saying things that could be construed as criticizing the regime.”
