I’ve been under stress for 40 years, says countdown genius Carol Vorderman. That’s why I’m talking now…
She has a natural talent with numbers. But now Countdown Genius Carol Vorderman has revealed another “superpower” — honed from “being pinned for 40 years.”
The 62-year-old says this allows her to deflect any personal criticism as she embraces the role of an anti-corruption activist.
She tells Today You magazine: ‘When you have false headlines written about you, helicopters over your house, your kids followed by paparazzi, and every part of your life — my body, my face, my hair, my sweaty armpits, my cellulite — abused over a very long period of time, one of two things happens. .
“Either you go under, which I will never do. Or you give me great power.
“You think, ‘Well, you (her critics) don’t have anything in your blood closet anymore, do you?'” “I have nothing to apologize for so I live without apology.
Carol Vorderman, 61, tells YOU magazine she’s been under stress for 40 years.

“And where I feel a sense of right or wrong—as opposed to right or left—I call it that.”
Miss Vorderman recently made headlines after clashing with Women’s Health Minister Maria Caulfield over postmenopausal workers. She has also launched a campaign of criticism against her ex-girlfriend, Baroness Moon, over allegations that she profited after lobbying for PPE contracts during the pandemic.
“I always kept my opinions to myself, but I was very angry at the lack of freedom of speech and what I believe to be the corruption that was going on,” she explains.
“So many people stop me every day on the street and say, ‘Thank you, we feel like we don’t have a voice.'”
Miss Vorderman’s no regrets also extends to her love life and ‘no strings attached’ relationships with multiple men.
Calling her “special friends,” the mother of two adds: “I’m continuing with this regimen and it’s working very well.
‘There are five of them.’ One has been friends for 11 years, and one for seven. My kids know most of them.
Miss Vorderman said they are all celibate and she works on the principle that she does no harm.
