Carol Vorderman, 61, discusses her 'number of special friends' as she dishes out dating advice


Carol Vorderman candidly discussed her two ‘special friends’ as she dished out dating advice and the reasons why she dates multiple men on Friday. 

The presenter, 61, revealed that one of her close male friends is an astronaut who ‘calls her from the space station,’ and she has been dating both men for years – adding that she ‘feels free’ since choosing not to remarry. 

Carol has never revealed the identities of the men.  

Showing off her hourglass curves in a figure-hugging chequered dress, Carol joined Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond on This Morning to answer a callers burning question during the advice segment.

Phoning in to the show, the 52-year-old viewer asked both Carol and Gyles Brandreth what age group he should ‘pitch himself to’ when looking for ladies to date. 

The Countdown star explained: ‘I live my life in chapters, and you said and this chapter since I was about 50. So for the last decade or so, I’ve lived a life which is much freer. 

‘I’ve never felt freer. So I have ignored the looking for one person and I have a number of what I’ve called “special friends”.

She continued: ‘I don’t really want to marry again. I don’t really want to live with a man again. Have to look after him all the time. But this is a time to break this nonsense taboo, which is a person should only be looking for one other person that satisfies everything in their life. That’s hell.’

Adding of her ‘special friends’ Carol explained: ‘They don’t know each other, but they know about it. It’s a very honest relationship. 

‘One of them has gone on for many more years than my marriage. Yeah, it’s over 10 years. Another is seven. He’s an astronaut. He rang me from the space station.’

Carol has been single since she split from journalist Des Kelly in 2007, after being married twice, first to Christopher Mather from 1985 to 1986 and then to second husband Patrick King from 1990 until 2000. The couple share two children. 

Answering the caller, Micheal’s question, she continued: They’re not looking for love, they’re looking for companionship, looking for friendship, it may turn into love. 

‘The age is really immaterial, but my experience suggests that somebody roughly in your age bracket. You have more in common.

‘Go with someone who makes your heart sing babes. Even if it’s only for an occasional weekend. You do you!’ she concluded.

This is not the first time that Carol has candidly discussed the reasons why she dates multiple men after she told the Loose Women panel her choses earlier this year. 

The Countdown star told how she chooses not to have a serious relationship in her sixties as it gives her time for her outdoor pursuits and camping trips. 

She explained to panellists Charlene White, Katie Piper, Brenda Edwards and Nadia Sawalha how often female friends her age admit they have regrets over marriage.

She told The Telegraph last year: ‘The thought of sharing my life with someone again makes me feel positively sick.’
