Does Carol Vorderman have a boyfriend?

In a new interview, the star has revealed that despite her single status she is, in fact, dating.

However, when it comes to walking down the aisle, Carol says she’s well and truly over the idea.

My happiness doesn’t depend on being part of a couple.

“I’m single and, yes, I am dating. Would I marry again? Honestly, I just can’t see it,” she told The Telegraph.

“I am always on the move and I have a pretty low boredom threshold. My happiness doesn’t depend on being part of a couple, I know that.”

She went on to confess that the idea of sharing her life with someone made her feel “positively sick”.

Carol for Countdown comeback?

The TV star was recently named as the favourite to replace Nick Hewer on Countdown.
