Carol Vorderman, 60, has opened up on items she has held onto over the years, including scripts from her TV shows. The BBC Radio Wales host admitted she has clung onto camera instructions from Countdown, Pride Of Britain and Better Homes.

I’ve got old scripts

Speaking on objects that people struggle to let go of, Carol said: “Some of the things are precious, things that I love to go to like F1 or the races.

“I always keep the programmes, and this, that and the other. Dougie Brimson, who is a very famous writer, he says ‘I’ve got boxes full of notebooks and numerous copies of printed manuscripts of every book I’ve written since I’ve become a writer back in 1995’.

“That’s a lot of paper. He says, ‘They are utterly useless  and I won’t look at them again, but I can’t throw them away’.”

Carol then explained how she had also kept camera scripts, which are used to let the camera crew know which angles to use for filming.

She continued: “See I’ve got old scripts, well not that we had a script, but a camera script for Countdown, Pride Of Britain, Better Homes. I’ve kept all those.”

Carol is hugely popular with fans after her stint as a host on Countdown for 26 years.

She has hosted Pride of Britain since 1999 and Carol Vorderman’s Better Homes ran from 1999 to 2003.

After appearing on Countdown she joined Loose Women back in 2011, before quitting after just three years.

Carol has since made it clear that she will not be returning anytime soon, after abruptly leaving the programme.

The star shared a poll from a Loose Women fan page on her Instagram story, revealing she had voted “no” to going back in the future.

The fan account had uploaded an image of Carol from her time as one of the Loose Women panellists, while the poll asked: “Would you like to see @carolvorders return to the show?”

Carol received a majority of “yes” votes from fans, with 60 per cent of users hoping she would make a comeback.

It appeared the former Countdown host did not feel the same way, as she had promptly hit the “no” button on the poll, and re-shared it to her own social media followers.

Shutting down any speculation over a Loose Women return, she wrote: “I’ve answered that with a big NOOOOOO… I think that should do it.”

Instead, the maths whizz is busy hosting the yearly Pride Of Britain Awards and is now a weekly presenter on BBC Radio Wales.

Her busy schedule means there is little time for romance and, after two failed marriages, Carol is now content with focusing on herself.

In an interview with the Telegraph, she revealed: “My happiness doesn’t depend on being part of a couple. I’m single and, yes, I am dating. Would I marry again? Honestly, I just can’t see it.”

Carol, who turned 60 on Christmas Eve, has been mostly single for over a decade.

She split with her ex-boyfriend, Des Kelly, in 2007 and has not dated publicly since.

Carol’s been married twice and has two children with former husband Patrick King.
