The Cambridge-educated presenter has won legions of fans since her career began on Channel 4’s Countdown in 1982, and always wows with her age-defying looks and stunning figure. 

Speaking about growing more confident with age, she told MailOnline: ‘Young women beat themselves up about being perfect and there is no such thing.

‘I do keep fit though, I started with a new trainer, a rugby captain in Wales and we have a good laugh. He’s pushing me harder now with weights. It’s the weights you need as you get older because I’m quite happy with my body weight.

‘I don’t actually know what I weigh but I’m happy, I don’t need to go on a diet or anything like that.

‘As you get older, you lose muscle mass and I’m now actively building muscle and I enjoy it. I do what I want to do and I’m not harming anybody, I’m just cracking on with being alive.’

Carol is mother to daughter Katie, 29, and son Cameron, 23, from her ten-year  marriage to second husband Patrick King, who she divorced in 2000. 

She was last known to be in a relationship with Red Arrows pilot Graham Duff, with their four year romance ending in 2016.
