Carol Vorderman Admits Dating A Toyboy Was 'A Bit Silly'

Carol Vorderman has opened up about her love life as she insists that she is happily single after splitting from her toyboy lover.

The TV presenter, who has been divorced twice, recently broke up with Graham ‘Duffy’ Duff after four long years together, and has admitted that dating somebody so much younger than her was “a bit silly”.

Still, four years isn’t too shabby for something you consider silly, is it?

Speaking to The Mirror, the 55-year-old shared: “I’m not opposed to going out with someone ten years younger, it’s acceptable. But Duffy was fourteen years younger - that was a bit silly really.”

Carol also revealed that she is hoping to stay single for a long ol’ while, adding: “I’m happily single, freely independent and doing my own thing.

"The best thing about being single is being able to do what you want. If I want to lie in, I will. Or I’ll go see a friend, without having to check in with anyone. I can’t bear checking in.

"Asking, 'Oh, is it all right, darling? Do you mind if I go?’ I can’t do that any more - there’s no way I’m going to start again.”

The star had two children, 24-year-old Katie and 19-year-old Cameron, with her second husband Patrick King and now that they’re both grown up she hopes to fly an aeroplane around the world after Duffy taught her how to pilot during their romance.

It sounds like Carol could not be happier and is seriously embracing the single life.
