For TV viewers across the UK, Carol Vorderman will always be synonymous with Countdown, Channel 4's hit quiz show, in which she calculated the answers to mathematical conundrums with lightning like speed, leading to the affectionate appellation "The Numbers Queen". She appeared on Countdown from the show's inception in 1982 until 2008 (over 4,750 episodes!)
But Countdown is only a part of the equation that has added up to Carol's success as a TV presenter/host. She has also presented the BBC's science and technology programme Tomorrow's World, as well as hosting entertainment shows such as ITV's Pride of Britain Awards and Loose Women. Other shows she has presented include Take Nobody's Word For It, World Chess Championship, Dream House, Britain's Brainiest Kid, Have I Got News For You, Carol's Big Brain Game, The Sunday Night Project, Lorraine (as a guest presenter) and Food Glorious Food.
In addition, Carol's popularity has led to numerous guest appearances on such shows as Celebrity Stars In Their Eyes, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Top Gear, Ant & Dec's Gameshow Marathon, The Apprentice: You're Fired!, Would I Lie To You?, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Question Time, Room 101, Piers Morgan's Life Stories, The Jonathan Ross Show, Celebrity Squares, The Saturday Show, Tonight At The London Palladium, and Michael McIntyre's Big Show. In 2016, Carol finished in eighth place in the sixteenth series of I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!
Carol has had newspaper columns in The Daily Telegraph and The Daily Mirror, and has also written two books on Detox diets, with Detox For Life selling over a million copies.
Carol supports a number of charities, and is an active supporter and advocate of the RAF Association, appearing at airshows and taking part in other fundraising events.
