Carol Vorderman stuns in a low cut red dress on her way to Houses of Parliament | The Sun
18th October 2022

CAROL Vorderman was dressed to impress in a pillar box red dress as she made her way to Westminster.

The former Countdown host, 61 – who has been outspoken about the effects of the menopause leaving her a "sobbing wreck" – was heading to the Houses of Parliament for a special menopause rally.

The brightly-coloured garment, which featured long sleeves and a low square neckline, made sure the telly favourite could not be missed.

Carol left her blonde hair in loose waves and wore a silver drop pendant to finish off her look.

She took to her Instagram Stories on World Menopause Day to write: "I'm on my way to the Houses of Parliament to join a rallying cry."

Carol tagged the Menopause Mandate Instagram account – which has organised the event.

The menopause is hormone deficiency syndrome – particularly the depletion of the hormone oestrogen – which affects all females later in life.

Admitting the full depths to which she plunged, the I’m A Celebrity star previously said her dark moods hit so hard some days she could not get out of bed or make basic decisions.

She even compared it to the grief she suffered after the death of her beloved Countdown co-host Richard Whiteley in 2005.

For the last six months of 2015, she told how she found herself in a deep depression after beginning to experience menopause symptoms in the summer.

Carol said: “Had I been in different circumstances, I could understand why people take their lives — because you can’t think of a way out.

“I couldn’t see the point of going on sometimes. It was a horrible place to be. I’ve been struck by grief, and experienced bad times. But this was different.”

She spent six months suffering in silence, before she said the “penny dropped” just after Christmas 2015 as she realised that her lows were linked to her time of the month.

Carol then saw a leading specialist who gave her two hormone replacement gels made from the yam plant. Overnight she felt an immediate change, and since her appointment has been depression-free.
