Has Carol Vorderman had plastic surgery?

Carol has previously denied going under the knife, but did admit to having botox.

One Twitter follower quizzed her about plastic surgery following an appearance on Lorraine, writing: “Settle an argument for me please Carol... girls in my office saying you can’t look that good without surgery, my argument is you work out a lot and they’re just well JEL."

The star then replied: “Lol… I go hiking two or three times a week… but I do have botox... and facials…”

Hitting back at claims she has had surgery on her figure, Carol also previously credited her curves to ‘an old pair of leggings’, when she was papped waiting for a taxi last year.

Addressing her 3,393K following, she wrote on Twitter: “Caught ordering an uber today after a meeting.....an old ⁦@KarenMillen⁩ top and old jeggings from ⁦@marksandspencer⁩.... but it's the same old Vorders.”

She also previously told Mail Online: “I promise I haven’t had bottom implants. It’s the same old bottom. In my family, loads of us have it: the Vorderman A**e.

“My daughter Katie has it. My nephew has it. We’re all sticky-out-bottom people.”
