The former Countdown star took to Instagram to announce the new addition, but it wasn't quite what her followers were expecting. Instead of sharing a photo of a new partner, Carol delightedly showed off a grey 4x4 that was branded with the word "MAN" on the back door.

She added: "A spanking new MAN @mantruckandbus 4x4 so I can get her into fields and onto beaches for adventures (and get her out again) genuinely beyond excited… The conversion is going to be ace with @vanlifebuilds."
Carol's fans were quick to respond, telling her she has found the "perfect match". One replied: "It'll be perfect for you!" A second said: "Perfect! Hope she'll do you well."
A third added: "Can't wait to see all your updates on this. This is epic!! Well done," and a fourth cheekily said: "Lucky MAN!"
Carol plans to completely revamp her new 4x4
Carol's new purchase will be perfect for her active lifestyle and will mean she won't have to find a last-minute hotel if she loses track of time paddleboarding – something she has had to do in the past.
She recently told HELLO!: "I like paddleboarding, hiking, and walking. During the pandemic, I was driving everywhere, sometimes six hours a day and I'd end up with a Deliveroo and a glass of wine in the hotel just to get over the day."
At least now she'll be able to return to her "new MAN".
