Carol is creating her own bespoke caravan

And the transformation is already underway, with another video showing the workers fitting her new windows to create an extra-light living space. She wrote: "@vordersvan...PUTTING IN THE WINDOWS. So we have designed the van to have extra windows in the kitchen area, end of bed, sliding door, and skylights. Wayne @vanlifebuilds cracking on now #vanlife."

Many of her fans were delighted to see the progress, but they couldn't help but ask why she wanted to go through the work of building a bespoke van.

The TV star has been sharing updates with her followers

"Carol, why didn't you buy a ready-made campervan?" asked one, and another added: "Why not just get an SUV? Awesome project but I just feel a proper SUV would have been simpler x." A third remarked: "I’m thinking why not buy a ready-made van. But then this one will be bespoke and unique with your own personal touch looks like lots of fun to be had."

Carol has invested in a MAN TGE van which sell for between £38,000 and £47,000 new, depending on whether you choose an automatic or manual transmission. Since many of her followers are keen to see her project, the 61-year-old has even set up a dedicated Instagram account for the vehicle, which she has cleverly dubbed "Vordersvan."

Opening up about why she wants to travel around in her new caravan, she explained: "This is about freedom and being outside and sharing the stars and the good air and great friendships… unburdened." We can't wait to see the finished result!
