Carol Vorderman is recovering after falling down stairs while wearing four-inch heels and breaking her nose.

The 52-year-old ex-Countdown star ended up in hospital and has been forced to cancel TV appearances following the accident.

Carol admitted that she feels "like a complete idiot" after she ran down the stairs with her hands in her pockets following a meeting in central London on Thursday.

The Loose Women presenter's boyfriend, ex-Red Arrows squadron leader Graham Duff, took her to hospital where she had surgery on her face.

TV presenter Carol, who has a plaster cast on her nose, said: "I feel OK but, because I had my hands in my coat pockets while I was running, I had nothing to break my fall except my head.

"I really do look like I've done eight rounds with Muhammad Ali.

"The bruising round my eye has reached its peak. I have stitches in my forehead and left eyelid."

Carol, who also presents Food Glorious Food, added: "I am just counting my blessings that I didn't damage my skull or the left eye itself..."

In the past, you followed conventional wisdom, only to regret your choice. Don't make this mistake now, when there is an important career matter before you. Accepting a glamorous job is tempting, but you'd prefer a position that is more edgy and demanding. An unpredictable job is calling your name; grab it.More
