Carol Vorderman: Countdown legend, 59, marks birthday in bottom enhancing skintight jeans

Carol Vorderman, 59, took to Twitter and thanked her fans for their “lovely messages” as she celebrated her birthday on Christmas Eve. The Countdown favourite gave a glimpse of her voluptuous derriere in the figure hugging trousers.

Carol shared a full length snap of herself sporting a tight-fitted ensemble to give her 420,000 followers the best possible view of her attire.

She paired the skin tight bottoms with a long sleeved polo neck jumper which gave fans a glimpse of her small waist.

The TV star also sported a pair of chunky knee-high boots elongating her toned legs.

Carol accessorised her outfit with a wide black belt with an oversized gold buckle around her waist, to ensure her hourglass frame was impossible to miss.

A second shot was the beauty alongside her BBC Radio Wales co-star Owain Wyn-Evans.

She rocked a Santa Claus hat while her pal sported a costume fitted six-pack donned with Christmas decorations.

The busty bombshell turned sideways to flaunt her famous behind in profile as she smiled for the camera.

The ex-Countdown presenter, who left the show in 2008, wore her honey tresses down in tousled waves and sported light make-up.

While third person added: “You look great Carol.”

The former Loose Women host also cheekily joked she had just turned 43 on her big day in a previous Twitter post.

She wrote: “Happy Birthday to me….43 today Calling all friends or relations of XMAS and New Year babies (anytime around now)…..tell me of your special “baby”, no matter what age and what you’d like me to play for them this morning on @BBCRadioWales Hooray and happy birthday.”

Carol followed up with another tweet, saying: “More pics later…..but you know I believe I’m blessed to have as many wonderful people as I do as friends, good friends…and two great happy kind children…awwww…Time on my birthday for feet up on the sofa….a bottle of champagne and The Sound Of Music….Bliss.”

She is best known as a presenter on Countdown, where she performed the letters and numbers duties from 1982, when the Chanel 4 game show began, until her departure 26 years later.

Carol was subsequently replaced by Rachel Riley, 33.

Elsewhere, the small-screen star hinted she wanted to marry her pal and fashion guru Gok Wan on a recent broadcast of BBC Radio Wales.

Their cheeky banter led the Countdown star jokingly offer her hand in marriage to the TV presenter.
