It looks like it’s all adding up for this TV legend…Carol Vorderman is being lined up to star on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. The 55-year-old Countdown icon is in talks with ITV and is expected to land a six-figure deal to head Down Under.
Producers believe she will be a hit with older men — especially during the popular shower scenes — after enjoying sex symbol status for more than 30 years.
An insider said: “She is well-known and still carries a lot of sex appeal. ITV chiefs are also hoping that she will be the brains of the camp. She’s a TV legend and they’re prepared to splash the cash to land her.”
After leaving C4 game show Countdown in 2008, Carol co-hosted Loose Women before departing in 2014. Model and presenter Lisa Snowdon, 44, former footballer Robbie Savage, 41, comic Helen Lederer, 62, and Coronation Street actor Craig Charles, 52, have also all been tipped to take part.
