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).

Early morning paddleboarding sessions have become a regular occurrence for Carol, who frequently shares snapshots documenting her outings on social media.

While the mum-of-two usually resides at her main residence in Bristol, she has a second property in Pembrokeshire, Wales, and frequently gives followers a glimpse inside her home.

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.
