Carol Vorderman has taken to Twitter to poke fun at some photos of herself alongside Gareth Gates. The Countdown legend couldn’t resist quipping at the stir they caused in view of her 727,000 followers.

The 62-year-old has been turning heads for all the right reasons at the Cheltenham Festival 2023 this week.

She was pictured having a chat with singer Gareth, 38, and she soon spoke out online.

The pair were seen laughing away together in an exclusive area of the event.

However, of course, everything was innocent with the Pop Idol favourite.

Carol used her social media update to also address being seen chatting with Matt Hancock.

The television regular sparked backlash online by talking to him on the balcony of a hospitality suite.

The mother-of-two has been outspoken about the 44-year-old in the past, making a dig just months ago following his appearance in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

She has since tweeted: “Excuse my pyjamas. Home after @CheltenhamRaces. Just seen a hilarious set up in an online newspaper about how I’ve been ‘cosying up to Matt Hancock’.

“I mean WTAF. Two videos to follow to tell you the facts. Surreal end to a wonderful day.”(sic)

Carol continued: “Laughing loudly about set up BS and Hancock… Also apparently according to other papers Gareth Gates and I are cosying up together.

“Jesus, I’ve been busy! Funny.”

She signed off: “Right time for bed here… back again tomorrow x.”

In the clip she said of Gareth: “Apparently I’m now having an affair with Gareth Gates. Really?”

She appeared highly amused, and laughed along as she poked fun at the pictures.

Gareth is thought to be single after splitting from girlfriend Chloe McLennan, 32, after two and a half years together in 2022.

A source previously told The Sun: “The writing was on the wall for some time, and it became clear there was trouble between them as Gareth has not liked or commented on any of Chloe’s pictures since November 11.

“With Christmas approaching, they have called it quits and want to make a fresh start apart in 2023.”

While Carol has been vocal about romance previously, talking openly about her five “special friends”.

Speaking of Matt, Carol also stated in the uploads: “I turned around and it’s Matt Hancock. ‘Hello, my name’s Matt.’ And I said, ‘Hi, I’m Carol and this is my friend Jules.’ You can’t call them [inaudible] in a royal box can you?

“Gina said [Matt] has ridden in a race. I said that’s interesting but we want to watch the race, so we turned around to watch the course. But he said, ‘Oh by the way thank you for everything that you do with your son about enlightening people about dyslexia. I am dyslexic.'”
