Carol looked gorgeous in the outfit

Carol recently had reason to celebrate as she was awarded an Honorary Fellowship from the Institute of Engineering and Technology, and picked up the award in the most gorgeous frock.

She showed off her curves in the figure-hugging pale grey dress and heels, and revealed that the snap had been taken at her old Cambridge college, Sidney Sussex, before the pandemic.

She wrote: "I'm very proud of our team and of all the work the children did through that time. I get young children coming up to me every week now and calling me 'Aunty Carol' and saying how they love maths…

"I'm getting ever deeper involved with education and have been giving a lot for bursaries for young people to study engineering for a while now. Young people from a similar background to me... state school and on free school meals. Young people who may otherwise not get a chance… Life is good."
