Carol Vorderman looks unrecognisable in dazzling graduation throwback snap

Carol Vorderman has wowed fans with an unrecognisable throwback snap as she posed in her graduation gown in 1981.

The 61-year-old TV star can be seen rocking a black and white cap and gown and long permed curly brown hair as she smiles for the camera to celebrate her graduation from Cambridge University over 40 years ago.

“Ha….1981….age 20 (started @Cambridge_Uni age 17) ..awwww. Whose idea was it to have a bad perm just before graduation? ….oh yes….mine,” posted Carol, followed by three laughing emojis.

The Tweet came in response to a post that featured an old newspaper article from 1977 about Carol, who had been “accepted to read aernonautical engineering at Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge.”

The tweet read: “front page of the Rhyl Journal and Prestatyn weekly July 1977 posted on a historical site on FB for Prestatyn, Meliden & Gronant today.”

Carole’s response to the article read simply: “Awwww….diolch xx”

The Pride of Britain presenter made fans jealous over the weekend after sharing some beautiful snaps of her enviable weekend in the Brecon Beacons.

Carol, who lives between Clifton and Pembrokeshire, spent the “perfect Sunday” at the beauty spot as she kept her 200,000 Instagram followers in the loop via selfies and nature snaps.

The star’s active lifestyle is clearly keeping her in such incredible shape, as she shared photos from two hikes in Wales.

Saturday saw Carol tackle a coastal walk near Swansea, while on Sunday she headed to the Brecon Beacons for a 12-mile mountain hike.

On Saturday Carol told her fans: "I've had a lovely weekend. This is all around the Swansea area, stunning, quiet, beautiful and then busy and full of lovely cafes. Pick your spot. So happy."

Fans rushed to comment on Carol's post, writing: "Stunning," "That looks like fun" and, "Wow! Beautiful place Carol!"

Carol added: "12 miles and a mountain in the Brecon Beacons. Lovely hike. Only saw a handful of people today. It felt like we were walking in a happy paradise. Got back in time for a sunset and a pretty crescent moon high in the sky.#dirtybootsandmessyhair”

Back in December 2021 Carol treated herself to a van which she has been converting, telling her followers: "This is about freedom and being outside and sharing the stars and the good air and great friendships. Unburdened."

Carol has previously said she walks between 12 and 20 miles twice a week and performs bodyweight exercises too. "In terms of squats, or the equivalent of squats, I probably do over 20,000 a year… that's a lot," she said.
