Nina Wadia OBE is a guest on Countdown. She is an actress and comedian who came to prominence in the television sketch show Goodness Gracious Me. She is also known for playing Zainab Masood in EastEnders from 2007 to 2013, and Mrs Hussein in Still Open All Hours from 2013 to 2018.
During her second run of appearances in August 2021, she was confirmed as a contestant on that year's Strictly Come Dancing. However, she was the first one to be voted out, and thus is one of the few celebrities who can claim to have done worse than Carol Vorderman.
