Carol Vorderman has taken the Internet famously speculating about the identity of her “five special friends” with whom she’s had relationships.
The TV presenter, 62, said that everything is working out very well because he does not want to be in love and not a jealous person.
Carol – who has “never one-night stands” – said her lovers are all celibate – and she wouldn’t mind if any of them fell in love with someone else and moved on.
The former Countdown Star made sure none of her partner’s names were released publicly and never mentioned any romance on her social media.
Carol has devoted most of her recent posts to her fitness regime, giving fans a glimpse into her workout routines.

One thing that definitely connected Carol to a younger generation was her attitude on dating and her willingness to talk about her relationships candidly, if not in detail.
“Oh yeah, yeah, my special friends,” she said. “I am continuing with this regimen and it is working very well.”
There are five of them. She said: ‘One has been friends for 11 years, and one for seven. My kids (Katie, 31, and Cameron, 25) know most of them.
Carol admits she enjoys the independence and freedom the setup gives her and says there’s no problem with her partners wanting more intimacy than what you give, “as long as you’re completely honest and have a good time.”
Everyone involved is celibate — it works on the principle that you shouldn’t hurt — and if one of them met someone else, that’d be fine.
She continued, “I’m not a jealous person and I’m happy when my friends are happy, whether they’re ‘special friends’ or not.
“The purpose of my life is to be happy, not to fall in love. I just find people interesting and life interesting.
And you can get to a point where you choose the parts that you enjoy. You can’t be in your 30s because you’re making your own career path, you’re beholden to bosses and all that stuff. But in my sixties…”

Carole has been single since separating from journalist Des Kelly in 2007, after having two marriages, first to Christopher Mather from 1985 to 1986 and then to her second husband, Patrick King from 1990 to 2000 – the father of her two children.
She has become a social media star thanks to some of her sexy posts in which she wears tracksuits and dresses.
“It’s just fashion,” she says. “I’ve always had a big a**.”
Carol works out in the gym and is a staunch advocate for healthy therapies: fasting, turmeric, hyperbaric oxygen therapy…
To stimulate mitochondria in cell regeneration and help ward off dementia, take spermidine tables. “It’s named after what you might imagine because that’s where it was first found,” she laughed.
“But these tablets aren’t made of that.”
She watches what she drinks “because I can’t stand a hangover,” hasn’t had surgery and admits to injecting her face with Botox and P3.
“Call me someone on TV, male or female, of any age, that doesn’t have that stuff!” Says. “But often I don’t comb my hair for days.”
