Carol Vorderman reveals she took out restraining order over ‘stalker’ who followed her campervan

Former Countdown host Carol Vorderman has revealed she had to take out a restraining order earlier this year, after experiencing a terrifying stalker situation.

Carol, 62, converted her £100,000 custom van into a portable home, which would allow her to travel up and down the UK, however she was left having to stay with friends after someone began following her van.

The TV presenter opened up about her scary experience on Instagram as she shared a compilation clip of her travels this year.

She wrote: OUTDOORS 2022. I’m alive and breathe when I’m outdoors, properly outside. From @juicemasterretreats @jasonvale walking 13 Miles a day with @jules__sampson … hiking in the @breconbeaconsnp to beachcombing….I just love it all."

She then revealed more about the stalking situation, as she continued: "Next year I’ll be away much more in my @vordervan.

"Had to go with my friends in their vans this year cos of a bit of a “Vorder stalker” thing going on. But 'civil restraining orders' have now been signed, so ONWARDS…..

"Ain’t no stopping me now I’m on the move" she finished.

OK! has contacted Carol's representatives for further comment.

Putting the scary experience behind her, Carol, who recently celebrated her 62nd birthday, shared that she has become 'obsessed' with all things fitness and is looking forward to continuing to workout in 2023.

Carol shared a video containing multiple clips of her throughout the year, from exercising on holiday to training with ex-Lioness Alex Scott.

Captioning the video montage, she wrote: "GYM THIS YEAR I’m obsessed with gym stuff. Gives me such a high….

"Had a rotator cuff issue earlier in the year which meant I couldn’t even close the curtains without holding my right arm up with my left BUT once over that. Booommmmm….".

Carol added: "Back on it… Here’s to a healthy 2023 Thanks to all my trainers this year especially @robrinder and @alexscott2 who you might spot on here," along with a string of laughing emojis.

The TV personality recently celebrated her 62nd birthday and marked the occasion by sharing a collection of photos of herself throughout the past 12 months.

One of the snaps sees the TV star attending the Top Gun: Maverick premiere in May, where she donned an on-theme fitted khaki green pilot jumpsuit, while a second showed off the stunning red gown she wore while presenting The Pride of Britain Awards in October.

Another saw the former Countdown star posing in front of the Carol Vorderman Buttery, part of the dining area at her alma matter of Sidney Sussex College at the University of Cambridge.

Sharing the photos to her Instagram, Carol wrote: "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME [balloon emoji] Looking back at the past year and feeling so grateful for all the fun I’ve had yet so excited for what’s to come."
