Carol Vorderman: ‘Don’t start me on that’ Countdown star reacts to cheeky ‘toyboy’ request

Countdown legend Carol Vorderman, 59, and her friend Suzi Perry, 49, were interrupted during their Instagram live conversation yesterday when the former received a flirtatious comment from a fan. The presenters were catching up over a video call during the coronavirus lockdown when Carol spotted a comment from an admirer who wanted to be her “toyboy”.

The request from the Instagram user read: “Would love to be Carol’s toyboy.”

After noticing the message, The Maths Factor founder exclaimed: “I just saw someone say, ‘I would love to be Carol’s toyboy’!”

Suzi’s male companion, who she has nicknamed “the Geordie lodger”, could then be heard jokingly chiming: “That was me.”

The Gadget Show star remarked: “I think that might have been the Geordie lodger Carol, wasn’t it?”

Following the cheeky exchange, Suzi took the opportunity to quiz Carol about what age would be “too young” for her in terms of a potential partner.

She mischievously asked the star: “What age is too young?”

Carol pulled a bemused expression and warned: “Don’t start me on that.

“Do not even point me in that direction,” which prompted Suzi to collapse into a fit of giggles.

Carol has been married twice, to Christopher Mather from 1985 to 1986 and to Patrick King from 1990 to 2000.

She shares two children, Katie and Cameron King, with Patrick.

The small-screen star recently opened up about her attitude towards dating when she told Platinum magazine: “I absolutely do not want to settle down.

“And if you’re happy and something’s working out why change it?”
