Former Countdown host shares racy video while on holiday in Portugal

Carol Voderman, 61, posted a video on her Twitter and Instagram yesterday to tell followers that she is “now on TikTok”.

However, the former Countdown host, who lives in Wales, also had explain to her 235,000 followers that she is “not topless” as her bikini couldn’t be seen in the clip.

Speaking from Portugal, Carol said: “Hello you lovely lot. I’m now on TikTok. Well who’d have thought it?

“If you click on the link in my bio, we can have a lot of fun on that.”

She finished by saying: “Have a lovely day. Lots of love from Portugal.”

Carol also used the post as an opportunity to promote her bikini top from Omg Swimwear and Tan Cream World’s SPF50 sun cream, which has “instant bronzer included”.

Carol and Richard co-hosted Countdown from 1982 until his death in 2005.

In May 2005, Richard was taken into hospital with pneumonia but while there, doctors found a problem with his heart.

He had an emergency operation for endocarditis on 24 June, but it was not successful and he died two days later.

On the evening of 27 June, the episode of Countdown that was supposed to air was postponed, out of respect.

A day later, Countdown returned and Carol gave an emotional tribute to him saying the “clock stopped too soon".

After his death, it was reported that Carol thought about leaving his show as the pair had grown very close.
