Can’t wait to be in awe of what Tim Peakes has achieved

Carol Vorderman

“Off to see Astronaut @astro_timpeake tonight at @stdavidscardiff Hall,” she enthused on Instagram. 

 Can’t wait to be in awe of what he’s achieved.”

 The former Countdown mathematician admitted that her fascination with the world of space has dated back a long time, as she promised to show fans photographic evidence.

 “The space industry holds a special place in my heart,” she explained. 

“I’ll post a pile of pics going back years of the rocket launches and events I’ve been to.” 

 She added that she had been “privileged for many years to be the only Brit to sit on the Board of Directors of NASA Challenger Centers, set up to encourage young people into understanding and enjoying human spaceflight even more”.

The event is billed as “an epic and thrilling journey to the International Space Station as part of [Tim Peake’s] first ever UK tour”. 

In 2015, the European Space Agency astronaut became the first Brit ever to “visit the International Space Station to conduct a spacewalk (and run a marathon!) whilst orbiting Earth”. 

Some Instagram fans wondered jokingly if they could come with Carol to the event, while jillryan78_ praised, “Incredible achievement. You are an inspiration Carol.”

Others seemed more distracted by where Carol had bought her sizzling outfit. 

Plus s_daud12 praised her “absolutely gorgeous n beautiful”(sic) appearance. 

Carol’s social calendar has been full recently, with the previous day seeing the Welsh beauty attend the Wales vs Fiji Rugby Union match, donning a very eye-catching bright red tracksuit.

She also recently attended the Football For Change gala, which promoted the needs of “young people in some of the UK’s most challenged communities”. 

“The charity raises money to help underprivileged kids and does fantastic work,” she praised on Instagram.

 It is a cause close to Carol’s heart as she herself grew up in a single-parent family blighted by poverty and related to the challenges that many youngsters sadly face. 

She attended the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool for the event, which was merely a few miles away from the Liverpool Women’s Hospital that was targeted by a bomber one day later in a suspected terrorist attack. 

Carol had previously received treatment at another nearby children’s hospital in Liverpool, Alder Hey, as a toddler for a “life-changing operation”. 

She revealed that her brother Anton had been a regular there as a child too, and had endured 24 operations in total as a result of a “severe cleft lip and palate”. 

“[I] am eternally grateful to this great city for all of the love given to us,” the star wrote on social media.
