Carol Vorderman has wowed fans with a series of stunning looks over the last few months, and as the weather starts to turn colder, she clearly has no intention of stopping.

The presenter took to Instagram on Sunday, where she showed off her gym-honed figure in a new pair of skintight leggings with a back pocket detail, which she wore below a figure-hugging black top.

Carol continued: "He was nine years older than me… I used to call him 'my little Daddy' because… it's a long story, but our father… refused to meet me, I don't know why…."

The star seemed emotional as she spoke about her family, going on to say that her brother was "always kind and yet he suffered a lot of abuse because of how he looked. He grew – and still is – into one of the kindest, most loving, funny successful people I know…everybody loves my brother."

Carol then shared that her brother had found that in Romania and Bulgaria children born with cleft palates were often taken into orphanages because they couldn't feed.

He then set up a charity to train specialist nurses to show mothers how to feed their babies.

Carol concluded: "In the first two years, they managed to get over 40 children back with their mums, which makes me want to cry because that's my brother… he's wonderful."
