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.”
