She also shared the images on Twitter and said, "Trying to sort the webcam at @BBCRadioWales… I have lessons to learn @OwainWynEvans."

Her fans were quick to share that she's not alone when it comes to technology struggles with one replying, "Modern technology is a nightmare, I'm with you on that LOL," while another added, "Don't stress it Vorders."

Carol has fronted her own series on the radio station since 2019, after stepping in to host her own Sunday morning show during the summer of 2018. She became a full-time member of the team on June 8, 2019.

At the time, the mother-of-two spoke out about taking on radio as opposed to television, where she is most known for hosting Countdown. "Even though I've hosted thousands of TV shows, I hadn't hosted my own radio show since I was a youngster back in 1984," she explained. "We have such a laugh and get up to all sorts of mischief (my favourite hobby), and all the feedback and phone calls and stories from everyone who's listening, well, it's wonderful," she added.

Her career began way back in 1982 on Channel 4's Countdown, which she left in 2008.
