Carol Vorderman has admitted she ‘feels like she’s still 20,’ after wowing fans with her ageless complexion.
In a new interview the Countdown presenter, 60, confessed she’s in denial about her age and has embraced feeling young at heart, adding she’s also ‘genuinely happy’ being single and has no plans to start hunting for ‘the One.’
Speaking as nominations opened for this year’s Pride Of Britain Awards, Carol told The Mirror: ‘I know I’m 60 – I know that because my birth certificate says so…. In my head I feel like I’m 20!’

Carol split from her Red Arrows pilot boyfriend Graham Duff five years ago and has been keeping in shape since with intermittent fasting and a personal trainer.
Of the prospect of a new romance, the presenter coyly explained: ‘I am genuinely happy being single with ‘special’ friends.’
And Carol will have plenty of time for dating whoever she pleases as she also revealed that she will no longer be working on TV projects.
The presenter detailed how she’d worked incredibly hard in 2020 and that her health suffered as a result, so she decided enough was enough.

She said: ‘Next year it will be 40 years since Countdown started. But I’m not that bothered about being on the telly any more…. I don’t want to do it any more.’
18 months ago, Carol bought a house where she grew up in Pembrokeshire, West Wales and intends to spend the majority of her time there, instead.
The move comes after Carol admitted that she isn’t sure what to do with herself now that her two children Katie, 29, and Cameron, 24, are adults and her mother died in 2017.
Speaking on GMB at the time of her mother’s passing, Carol said: ‘She was an amazing lady and was always with me. She’s worked with me since I was 25 and lived with me, so I miss her terribly.
‘But there was nothing left unsaid or undone, and as she would say, ‘Its not a tragedy, I’m nearly 89 and have had a great life.”
