You might think that trivial concerns might have gone out of the window considering the fact that we’re in the middle of a global pandemic, but Carol Vorderman has chosen this time to speak up about how people only care about her bum and not her brains.

Not really sure if that’s true because she is recognised as a Countdown legend by most people, but whatever. She was talking to Platinum 10 magazine – which admittedly might have happened before anyone even knew about Coronavirus – where she said the following:
One of the sad things is that people think I am only ever talking about the way I look.
I just choose to pay no attention to it.
I was a free school meals kid. I got to Cambridge from a comprehensive.
That just didn’t happen in the 70s.
Now I do a lot of work with kids from a similar background to me.
I have my online maths school, I sell I-don’t-know-how-many education books a year.
But that never gets talked about.
Instead it’s, `how big is her bottom?’
I’m not thin but I am a size 10.
I go in at the middle and very much out at the bottom and top.
I put it down to long walks, three gym sessions-a-week and 20,000 squats-a-year.
I mean I suppose she has a point there, but she kinda shoots herself in the foot by then going on to discuss her butt and her figure herself? Surely it would have made more sense for her to just keep focussing on her educational work with disadvantaged kids rather than steering the conversation around to her backside if she didn’t want to talk about it? Doesn’t really make any sense, but I guess it’s a bit of a distraction from the Coronavirus though hey?
For more of the same, check out when she said she had a number of lovers who she shags on the regular. Hardly talking about her brains all the time herself is she?
