Carol Vorderman, 62, dubs herself ‘the Little Mermaid of pensioners’ as she shows off wild new curly hair and tells fans how THEY can get her look
Carol Vorderman showcased her new wild curly hairstyle while appearing on This Morning on Friday and branded herself the ‘Little Mermaid of pensioners.’
The blonde beauty, 62, looked incredible on the ITV show in a figure hugging lilac leather midi skirt which displayed her famous curves.
Carol tucked a Karen Millen white long sleeve blouse into the number which boasted a large zip up the front.
She added inches to her frame in a pair of towering muted heels as she posed for photos in the studio ahead of going live.
The I’m A Celebrity star applied a flawless palette of makeup to accentuate her beauty including a bold dark smoky eye shadow and glossy pink lipstick.
Alongside a gallery of snaps shared to Instagram, she penned: ‘Had a great time as ever with @gylesbrandreth, @alisonhammond55 and @dermotoleary doing the News Review.
‘And lots of you saying nice things about my beach hair today. Thank you from a grateful pensioner. Ha’.
Carol later took to her social media to show fans how to get her incredible new hairstyle as she did a tutorial video with make-up artist Lauren O’Donnell.
She said: ‘It’s very simple I bought the deep barrel waver from Tony and Guy, it was between £20 to £25.’
Lauren began taking sections of Carol’s locks and showing fans how to get the same beachy waves.
Carol continued joking: ‘I use these by myself as well, aren’t I clever! It doesn’t take long to do. The Little Mermaid of pensioners.’
However on Twitter the look got mixed reviews, with one writing: ‘Carol’s giving me 90’s assistant manager at a Supercuts’.
While others were loving her new do, one said: ‘Photo doesn’t do your hair justice! It looked fab on This Morning…’
Another gushed: ‘Carol Voderman looks stunning. Her hair is perfect’.
A third added: ‘Loved your hair today’.
‘Fantastic, that’s looks amazing. Well done for sharing “How To”’, penned a fourth.
During her recently appearance in the jungle, Carol revealed she threw out her bathroom scales in 1999 as she discussed body positivity in I’m A Celebrity South Africa.
Joining Myleene Klass in camp, the girls spoke about their decision to ‘not be ruled by a number’ and discussed when they decided to stop focusing on their weight.
TV presenter Carol, who is no stranger to confidently flaunting her figure on social media, admitted she has ‘not known her weight this century.’
During the campfire chat, Carol said: ‘I only go on dress size,’ while Myleene explained how she threw out her scales following the birth of her two daughters.
She said: ‘Every woman knows the feeling when you get on the scales in the morning and it appears that your weight has gone up. “Oh I put on three pounds”, but you haven’t put on three pounds of fat in a day, you cannot physically do that.
‘You have probably retained water. I know how big I am or not by my volume so I just go on how my clothes fit really. I call it half a dress size. So I’m basically a size 10. And it I might go down to a ‘size nine’ or up to a size 11, and that’s fine with me.
‘I threw mine out in 1999. I have not known my weight this century.’
Myleene added: ‘The second I had daughters I threw the scales away. People ask me my weight all the time and I never know it.
‘Why would you let somebody measure themselves, measure their value, measure their contribution on a scale?
