Can you now use 'chillax', 'bromance' or 'selfie' in Scrabble? They're among a number of new words that have been added to the Official Scrabble Players Dictionary, which is published in the US.

Other new words include 'hashtag', 'texter' and 'frenemy', but can British Scrabblers start putting them on their boards?

Stewart Holden from the the Association of British Scrabble Players explained to Rachel Burden and Nicky Campbell on BBC 5 live Breakfast what this means for the UK game.
