Carol Vorderman dances on the beach - before issuing surprise apology

The 60-year-old put a smile on fans' faces

Carol Vorderman had to 'earn' her breakfast on Tuesday - in the most unusual way. The 60-year-old took to Twitter to share a series of snapshots showing her on a beach in Wales and showing off her dances moves, still dressed in her wetsuit.

Fitness fan Carol explained in her caption that she had been attempting to perform the Haka - a posture dance in Maori culture that has become synonymous with the New Zealand rugby team (the All Blacks).

The real highlight is the panoramic balcony which offers up stunning views of the Welsh coastline. Featuring a glass front and a slate floor, the balcony has been kitted out with a rattan chair and footstool and a small table and is clearly one of Carol's favourite spaces in her home.

The star has gone for a luxurious grey colour scheme inside the property. In the lounge, Carol opted for a grey sofa with a matching soft grey throw and there are lanterns dotted around the room for added atmosphere.

The bedroom is just as stylish with a plush grey carpet, crisp white sheets, and a luxurious quilted bedspread.
