Carol looked as glam as ever for the big game

She went on: "If you've never been, it's amazing. It's not like Twickenham which is outside of London... this is slap-bang in the centre of Cardiff... 200 yards from the train station... and right in the shops and bars centre...

"Like taking Wembley which is miles and miles out of the centre of London and sticking it In Oxford Circus.

"Our national anthem "Mae hen wlad fy nhadau" (the old land of my fathers) so loud yesterday you could hardly even hear [her friend] Wynne (and he's LOUD)...and my high soprano voice somewhere in this video....such a passionate anthem…"

Carol then finished by saying: "Last pic in the car on the way to my heaven which I love beyond love, and cry when I have to leave [heart emojis]."
