Speaking about the incident on the long-running panel show, Vorderman said: "So, Laurence Fox was on Dan Wootton’s show and he said some terrible things about a female journalist called Ava Evans. Then there were lots of complaints, and then Laurence Fox was sacked but Dan Wootton, apparently there’s an internal investigation."

The former Countdown star was then asked by host Victoria Coren Mitchell: "More importantly, though, Carol, about Laurence Fox, would you shag him?"

Vorderman proceeded to pull a disgusted look on her face before shaking her head and saying "urgh".

Coren Mitchell then quipped: "You see, I think I probably would but…"

With Vorderman then exclaiming: "Victoria!"

Coren Mitchell ended the exchange by joking: "Call me Gen X, a difference of opinion is no bar."
