Countdown star Susie Dent, 55, took issue with Pointless star Richard Osman, 49, after the presenter made an announcement on Twitter. The BBC quizmaster shared the news that the Bafta organisers have introduced a new daytime TV category for 2021.
But Richard cheekily joked on the micro-blogging site that his show Pointless didn't have a chance of winning.
In view of his 966,000 Twitter followers, he penned: "Already looking forward to losing this to Dickinson's Real Deal."
His tweet caused a stir with his followers, most notably from Countdown favourite Susie who took a cheeky swipe at Richard.
In view of her 581,000 followers, she replied: "How dare you."

Richard took the opportunity to amend his previous statement as he cheekily joked that Countdown would also lose in the daytime category.
"Ok, looking forward to us both losing," the Pointless star amended.
Susie replied: "That's much better, thank you."
Their cheeky back and forth comes after it was announced a daytime television will be honoured at the Baftas for the first time after growing numbers of Britons started watching programmes that air during traditional working hours.
