Carol Vorderman explains ‘very lumpy’ appearance in tight workout clothes during her walks

Countdown legend Carol Vorderman, 60, has admitted she tends to stuff rubbish down her top and leggings when she’s out walking in the Welsh countryside in order to avoid littering. The maths expert, who is usually spotted enjoying daily walks in skintight workout gear, shared her admission with Julia Bradbury on her BBC Radio Wales show yesterday.

Carol’s comment prompted the former Countryfile presenter, who is also a walking enthusiast, to declare that her habit must make her body look “very lumpy” to any onlookers.

The star got onto the subject while discussing Julia’s work with environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy.

Julia fumed of littering: “It’s just so horrible! 

“How can you go to a beautiful location, suck in those views, enjoy it, and then leave your bag of chips behind? I don’t get it.”

Carol agreed with her radio guest, before giving her listeners some handy tips and tricks about how to keep tidy while out and about.

She told Julia: “I don’t get it!

“I will always take a little plastic bag with me, or if I’m on a long walk obviously my rucksack, all my rubbish goes in my rucksack.

“But there have been times when I’ve gone, ‘I just fancy a Welsh cake’ and it comes in a little bag.


Julia quipped: “So basically, everyone’s going, ‘God, that Carol Vorderman has become very lumpy! What are those funny shapes? Is she alright? Has she got some strange disease? She’s got leg lumpitus, what’s going on?’”

Carol giggled at Julia’s remark and admitted: “I’m not a class act Julia Bradbury.”

“You are! That’s why we love you,” Julia reassured the presenter.

It comes after Carol took to Twitter to share her progress after taking on The Big Walk for Wales’ leading prostate health charity Prostate Cymru.

Carol has to walk 26 miles in July to complete the challenge.

At the beginning of this month, Carol explained she has a trick to prevent herself from suffering any knee problems.

She told her 463,000 followers: “Morning gang. Walked 10 miles to kick off the @pcbigwalk as #TeamCaptain for @ProstateCymru. 

“Little secret…one leg is 5mm longer than the other (most people have this but don’t realise), so I put an orthotic in one trainer to stop knee problems. 

“It works. I’m defo weird.”

Kate Middleton wears £795 polka dot skirt for first appearance at Wimbledon 2021

Kate Middleton, 39, appeared at Wimbledon today to watch day five of the tennis. She was joined by British tennis champ Tim Henman, who sat next to the Duchess to watch today’s matches.

Later today, tennis champ and friend of the Duchess Andy Murray will play against Canadian Denis Shapovalov. 

But Kate wasn’t at Wimbledon just to watch the tennis – she also visited the kitchen used by AELTC over the past year to support the local community throughout the pandemic. 

Over the past year, the kitchen prepared and distributed some 200 hot meals every day.

And today, one of those helping out was the Duchess herself as she helped staff and volunteers prepping food.

She also heard more about this charitable initiative from executive chef Adam Fargin, who has been leading the project.

Kate was seen in pearl earrings today – and an expert has spoken about why these are a staple for the Royal Family.

Diamond expert at Austen & Blake Anthony French said: “Diamonds and pearls – the epitome of royal jewels – have been seen paired together on many of the royals including the Queen, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton over the years.”

Members of the Royal Family have styled the iconic jewels in different ways.

“Often worn together when tending to their formal affairs, female royals have paired them in a number of ways,” Anthony said.

“Meghan has been seen in a pair of white gold diamond and pearl earrings.

“The Queen is often seen wearing a string of pearls around her neck, accompanied by a diamond brooch.”

When royals such as Kate have donned diamonds and pearls, the expert suggested they give a strong message that can be copied by anyone wearing the jewels. He explained they can add “class” to an ensemble and help “impress”.

Prince William and Kate Middleton’s ‘weird’ Euro 2020 appearance called out by Chris Evans

Prince William, Kate Middleton and their eldest son George were joined by 40,000 supporters at Wembley stadium for England’s clash against Germany in Euro 2020. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge caught the attention of Chris Evans, who questioned the couple’s match appearance.

Speaking on his self-titled Virgin Radio Breakfast Show today, the radio DJ admitted he was baffled why the trio appeared socially distanced while watching the game.

The broadcaster said he was unsure why the royals stood so far apart from one another, as they are living in the same household.

“William, Kate and George were there,” Chris began.

“They were socially distancing from each other and they’re in the same bubble.”

Chris remarked: “Where was Prince Harry? We know he is in the country.”

He cheekily addressed the brothers’ rumoured rift, as the radio DJ joked he was sure Prince Harry wished they had made up before the big football game.

“I bet he’s thinking, ‘Why didn’t I make up with my brother before the game?'” Chris joked.

Prince Harry has returned to Britain for the unveiling of a statue in honour of his late mother, Diana, the Princess of Wales.

Gunman shoots ex-wife 4 times on day of court appearance for child custody battle, deputies say

HARRIS COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) — A man accused of shooting his ex-wife four times Monday morning, the day they were scheduled to appear in court for a child custody hearing, has been arrested.

Harris County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home on Memorial Crossing Drive near Memorial Falls Drive in response to a shooting/home invasion around 3:30 a.m. Monday.

A preliminary investigation revealed that a Andrea Wright’s ex-husband cut off all power to her home, broke into the back window and shot her four times.

Aaron B. Wright was located and arrested later Monday morning and booked into the Harris County Jail, according to Sheriff Ed Gonzalez. He’s charged with aggravated assault.

Andrea is in stable condition, Gonzalez said.

According to Harris County Deputy Investigator John Mook, the couple has been divorced for about a year.

Their four children between the ages of 5 and 12 were home, sleeping in their beds during the shooting, according to Mook. They were all uninjured.

Investigators say Aaron may have anticipated losing custody of the kids when the pair was scheduled to appear in court Monday for a child custody hearing.

Aaron reportedly used the power box on the side of the home, which was unlocked at the time of the shooting, to cut off the power.

When asked if the ex-husband had made threats before, Mook said he had a history with Andrea’s new boyfriend.

“I do understand that he has threatened the new boyfriend multiple times,” Mook said. “I’m sure this was a contentious divorce as well. We’re looking into all of that.”

Surveillance video shows a second suspect with Aaron at the scene. Deputies believe the second suspect is his new girlfriend.

It is unclear if she was also arrested when Aaron was taken into custody Monday.

The pair reportedly drove to the home in Aaron’s work truck, parked down the street and approached on foot. They both fled the scene on foot, according to Mook.

The four children are safe with their grandmother, according to investigators.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with expenses.

Queen Elizabeth wears mint coat & diamond brooch for first appearance at Royal Ascot 2021

Queen Elizabeth II stood out wearing a mint coat over a floral dress. She was seen arriving at the races on the last day of the event, which took place today.

It appeared to be in the same shade with black and pink flowers across it.

She recycled her favourite black leather shoes which have a gold chain across the front.

The footwear is by Anello & Davide of Kensington and cost around £1,000.

The royal also wore a pair of white gloves.

The monarch chose to wear the Palm Leaf Brooch that previously belonged to the Queen Mother.

It was commissioned for the Queen Mother in 1938 and she wore it regularly.

Grand Theft Auto 6 E3 reveal latest: Will GTA 6 make appearance at Take-Two panel?

GTA 6 is one of the most hotly anticipated games of the generation, and it hasn’t even been announced yet.

Grand Theft Auto fans are counting down the days until GTA 6 is revealed, which has led to countless rumours about when the big announcement will take place.

With this year’s E3 event getting started over the weekend, all eyes are on the various online panels for updates about the next game in the Grand Theft Auto series.

Sadly, GTA 6 didn’t make a surprise appearance during this weekend’s Microsoft conference, which means it’s unlikely to be announced during E3 2021.

Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two Interactive is getting ready to hold its own interactive panel later today (June 14), although no new game announcements are expected.

Instead, the the Take-Two Interactive Panel will focus on ‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’, and not new games.

If you’re planning to tune in just in case, the Take-Two Interactive panel will be broadcast at 6.15pm BST on June 14. You can watch it on the official E3 YouTube channel.

Of course, GTA 6 could make an appearance as part of a surprise Summer Game Fest event that’s yet to be announced, so there’s still hope yet.

Without any concrete information surrounding GTA 6, fans have been getting their information via leaks and rumours.

Previous rumours have suggested GTA 6 will be set in the 1970s or 1980s, and feature a single playable protagonist.

Likewise, the next Grand Theft Auto game will allegedly take place in Vice City and Rio de Janeiro.

But despite rumours that GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, Express Online readers would prefer if the action shifted to London.

In a poll with more than 3,200 votes, nearly 1,500 fans said that GTA 6 should be set in London.

That’s compared to just 720 votes for Vice City, 372 votes for Tokyo, and 336 votes for somewhere else entirely.

As for E3 2021, many of the biggest announcements were saved for the Microsoft and Bethesda conference.

Bethesda announced at November 11, 2022 release date for space-based role-playing game Starfield.

Forza Horizon 5 was announced for Xbox devices, where it will launch later this year. Confirming earlier reports, the game will be set in Mexico.

Elsewhere, Microsoft ended the show with a look at new Arkane co-op game Redfall, which is an Xbox exclusive launching in 2022.

Rafael Nadal casts doubt over Wimbledon appearance after Novak Djokovic defeat

Asked if his appearance at Wimbledon was now in danger, the champion in 2008 and 2010 said: “I don’t know what I’ll do in my future.

“After two intense months in a positive gravel season without having achieved the final goal, I have managed to achieve two titles.

“The body after so much struggle usually suffers a slump. Wimbledon this year is in two weeks. It’s different from when I was 25 years old. I am 35 and you have to see how I recover in every way.

“I need to digest it all, be calm, take a few days off and go home. We have been locked up in Paris for two and a half weeks and I need to breathe a little, enjoy the good weather in Mallorca and what is going to happen is of little importance ”.

Another person wrote: “Always glam and fabulous even with jeans, t-shirt and a mask! Damn Kate, how could you be so amazing?!”

Kate’s outfit is a big change from the looks she has been serving royal fans this week while visiting various locations in Scotland with Prince Willian.
