After Carol explained what had happened to her face, Kaye Adams comforted her co-star, saying: "It's got better since this morning, you've taken an anti-histamine haven't you?"

To which Carol replied that she had, but it had made her feel "a bit weird."

The 63-year-old explained she'd opted to forgo makeup, in fear it would further inflame her skin, a decision which impressed viewers with one fan writing: "Good on Carol, women shouldn't have to coat themselves in makeup, or feel like they have to."

Carol is certainly confident in her own skin and works hard to maintain her figure.

In a joint interview with her husband Mark Cassidy in Best magazine, Carol revealed that 2023 is their year of fitness, explaining: "We're already both quite healthy, especially with what we eat, and don't do anything to excess (except rosé wine, of course!) – but we're definitely on a bit of a mission to shape up because last year we were a bit lazy."
