I’m A Celebrity… South Africa star Carol Vorderman proved just how flexible she is with a series of new workout snaps

Carol Vorderman showcased her incredible curves in matching black workout gear, as she hit the gym on Wednesday. The former Countdown star, 62, who lives in Bristol, took to Instagram to give fans a glimpse of her workout.

The I’m A Celebrity star showed off her unbelievable flexibility, as she lay on a gym mat and pulled her leg towards her head with a green resistance band. She is also seen pulling her leg to the side with the band in another snap.

Carol beamed in the snaps as she posed and gave her 339,000 followers a glimpse into her gym workout. She donned a pair of tight black leggings and a matching long sleeve crop top from the clothing brand Stronger, with a pair of neon green trainers.

Carol appears fresh-faced in the snaps, with her iconic long blonde hair cascading over her shoulders. She is no stranger to flaunting her figure in fitted outfits and most recently posted a slew of bikini snaps that she took when preparing for her stint in the ITV spin-off show.

The TV star can be seen in another snap training her arms as she performs intense pull-ups on a rack. The I’m A Celebrity star captioned the post: “I love a gym workout with @meldeane12  BOOOM!”

Carol tagged her personal fitness trainer, Mel Deane, who also trains the likes of actor Jamie Dornan, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher and former Footballer Rio Ferdinand. In a short clip, she can be seen lifting weights from a seated-to-standing position.

This comes after Carol left I’m A Celebrity viewers giggling during her intense trial on Tuesday night’s episode. After Ant and Dec explained the underwater trial, 'Tanks of Torment’ , Carolclaimed that she has “Britain's most buoyant bottom.”

The TV star previously won the ‘Rear of the Year’ award twice, having bagged it in 2011 and then again three years later, in 2014. I’m A Celebrity viewers found Carol's confession amusing and took to Twitter to post about her comments. One fan joked: “Never need armbands with Carol around!,” while another said: “HAHA Carol.”

Once the trial started Dec couldn’t resist making another reference to Carol’s famous ‘rear,’ he said: “That's the problem with having Britain's most buoyant bottom. It's difficult to get down!” while Ant replied: “Very difficult!”

The 'Tanks of Torment' trial saw her swim through sea creatures to gain stars and meals for the camp. Although the challenge started with a giggle, it ended with Carol in tears as she wasn’t able to complete the trial due to her fear of drowning.

Carol could only move from one section to the next, when Fatima cranked the handle to open the connecting doors. However, when it came to the last section of the tanks it became too much for Carol to handle. 

It was filled with snakes of all sizes and before entering Carol realised that there was a large snake waiting for her inside the breathing room. Carol had managed to collect seven stars, but the prospect of going into the last tank made her panic and she became visibly emotional. 

She admitted to Fatima, Ant and Dec that she couldn’t go ahead with the trial because she has a fear of drowning. Carol said: “I can't do that. I'm not sure I want to do it. I've got this fear of drowning.I have this real fear of drowning. And it's like my ultimate fear.”.
