The former Countdown star was stunned by the Strictly professional's behaviour during a recent telly appearance together.

Carol Vorderman, 57, and Anton Du Beke, 52, had some flirty banter during a recent appearance on BBC game show I'll Get This.

During part of the game they were challenged to send a text to a recipient of their choice that encouraged them to reply with the word 'sausage'.

They weren't allowed to use the word in their message but try their best to get the response they needed.

Rylan Clark-Neal, Ed Gamble and Ellie Taylor were also part of the game but Anton decided to send his message to Carol.

Announcing who he'd sent his text to the dancer said: “I’ve gone for someone who will certainly know what to write almost instantly.”

“Would you like to see my? Please fill in the blank.”

If the innuendo wasn't enough, Anton made things a whole lot cheekier when he said "Carol you can reply to me anytime you like".

Carol continued to banter with a response of her own and said "Not until pudding!".

Of course the flirtation was only in the spirit of the game as Anton is happily married to his wife Hannah Summers and the pair welcomed twins, George and Henrietta, in March 2017.
