Carol Vorderman dons figure-hugging green dress for rainy day at the races
Published: March 12, 2019
At the Cheltenham Racecourse, Carol Vorderman stepped out in the rain to attend Champion Day.
The former Countdown star, 58, did not let the wet weather dampen her spirits arriving under a large umbrella with a big smile on her face.
The popular television presenter showed off her famous figure in a dark green dress with a hemline which fell to just below the knee and was styled with a pair of black T strap heels.
Donning a coordinating forest green hat, like the one she wore in the Australian jungle when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! three years ago, Carol added a cosy cream coat to keep warm.
At the start of the week, Carol told her 392,000 Twitter followers that she had a busy week to look forward to.
She wrote: “Big week ahead…..@BBCTheOneShow then @CheltenhamRaces and then Caerdydd for the RUGBY #grandslamison”.
Clearly, in her element at the moment and enjoying life to the fullest she signed off with the hashtag “#ILoveMyLife”.
Hoping to win big today at the Cheltenham Festival 2019, sport-loving Carol will then head to Cardiff to watch Wales take on Ireland in the Six Nations Grand Slam.
