The star has a new-found passion for paddleboarding

Maths genius Carol is quite the fitness fanatic, and often posts about her workouts on social media, crediting her healthy, balanced diet as a source of "brainpower".

The TV star encourages others to enjoy brain-boosting foods and a diet that includes plenty of fruit and veg, low-fat protein and starchy, fibre-rich carbs.

A typical lunch for Carol, taken from her book Eat Yourself Clever, is a tuna Nicoise salad and a pot of yoghurt or fromage frais. A balanced leafy green salad with protein-rich eggs and tuna as a source of omega-3 is the perfect midday meal for the Countdown star.
