It seems Carol is living her best life right now. Last year, the mum-of-two revealed that she's the happiest she's ever been. In an exclusive chat with HELLO! Carol explained: "I am so happy and I absolutely, and I cannot stress this enough, I love my life. I love it. I am endlessly bubbling over."

And what's the 59-year-old's secret to her enviable physique? Her active lifestyle. Carol continued: "I'm always in the gym, I'm always doing circuits, I’m always hiking ... I walk a lot, I choose not to drive when I can, I hike a lot and I build it into every day and that is the key. It just makes you feel good about your life and makes me happy."
