Carol Vor­der­man: ‘Life’s never, ever dull!’

Carol Vor­der­man de­lights in re­veal­ing her ‘groupie’ wild side…

Best - - CONTENTS - WORDS: KELLY ALLEN

She might have looked the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of class when she hosted the Pride Of Bri­tain Awards, but that doesn’t mean Carol Vor­der­man doesn’t en­joy let­ting her hair down when she can!

The for­mer Count­down maths mas­ter, 56, isn’t as sen­si­ble as she ap­pears, and Carol has ad­mit­ted she has a wild side she doesn’t of­ten let the pub­lic see.

‘I go out a lot – I’m a party an­i­mal, let’s not lie about this!’ she said. ‘The party side of me isn’t a side that, gen­er­ally, I al­low to be seen.’

The TV pre­sen­ter ad­mit­ted that, dur­ing one par­tic­u­larly crazy in­ci­dent af­ter a Rag’n’Bone Man con­cert, she wound up on a stranger’s bed!

She ex­plained, ‘I went to see Rag’n’Bone Man in con­cert re­cently and ended up on some­one’s bed in the tour bus. Noth­ing rude hap­pened – it was just funny! I’m like a grenade you pull the pin on. Life is never, ever dull.’

Rag’n’Bone Man, real name Rory Gra­ham, from East Sus­sex, won two Brit Awards – the Crit­ics’ Choice award and the award for Bri­tish Break­through Act – fol­low­ing the suc­cess of his sin­gle, Hu­man, last year. The ex-Loose Woman is thought to have watched him per­form at his Bristol gig in April.

Carol has hosted the Pride Of Bri­tain Awards, which are shown on ITV, since they be­gan in 1999. Dressed in a fig­ure­hug­ging red gown for the red car­pet be­fore chang­ing into a sil­ver­skirted dress, Carol en­ter­tained guests in­clud­ing Prince Wil­liam and Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, as well as a host of celebri­ties.

While rev­e­la­tions of her an­tics may come as shock to fans of the mother-of-two, it seems this side of Carol’s per­son­al­ity is leg­endary to those who know her well.

Speak­ing about her ex-col­league and for­mer Count­down host, she added, ‘Richard White­ley used to say to me, “Vorders, you could make trou­ble in an empty room.” He wasn’t wrong. Peo­ple have an im­age in their heads of who I am, and it’s re­ally quite wrong.’

Ear­lier this year, the twice­di­vorced star be­gan dat­ing ‘com­pletely laid-back’ builder Cas Neill, 49, a gym-honed, tat­tooed di­vorcé. Could Carol be set­tling down at last?

‘I ended up on some­one’s bed af­ter a Rag’n’Bone Man gig. I’m a party an­i­mal – let’s not lie!’
