Last year Carol spoke of how she has been described as a “sex symbol”.

She said: “I get recognised in the street a lot, particularly after Strictly, but I’m certainly not famous.

“As for being a sex symbol? Well, that doesn’t even come on my radar.

“I’m just grateful to be on TV for being good at what I do, not because I’m a particular age or gender.”
