Carol Vorderman
ON TOUR SEPTEMBER 2024

“I’m just an old bird with an iPhone who’s been on the telly for over forty years. Sixty-three and post-menopause, I dislike bullies and charlatans, and I don’t give a flying fig for what those people say about me.” 

With characteristic outspokenness and irrepressible sense of humour Carol will share stories from her unlikely pivot from daytime TV’s queen of mental arithmetic to outspoken political activist.

These events mark the publication of Carol’s brand-new book: NOW WHAT? On a Mission to Fix Broken Britain and every ticket includes a hardback copy (RRP £22)

About The Book

“I’m just an old bird with an iPhone who’s been on the telly for over forty years. Sixty-three and post-menopause, I dislike bullies and charlatans, and I don’t give a flying fig for what those people say about me.”

Amidst a landscape of economic turmoil, eroding freedoms and deepening societal fractures, one thing is clear: Britain is in a mess. Instead of serving the common good, our politicians seem fixated on personal gain, while certain segments of the media only seek to divide us further. But who is responsible for this descent into chaos? And how can we hold these people to account?

With her characteristic outspokenness and irrepressible sense of humour, Carol Vorderman reveals the intricate web of influence responsible for our nation’s unravelling. Part diary, part political manifesto, this is the story of how “an old bird with an iPhone” exposed the incompetence and lies of the Tory establishment, and inspired countless others to find their voice and stand up for what they believe in.

About Carol

Born in 1960, Carol grew up in a single parent family in poverty in North Wales with her sister, brother and her beloved mum, Jean. As a free schools meals child in a comprehensive school, she became the first from North Wales to go to the University of Cambridge when she was just 17 years old. Since childhood, Carol has had a passion for everything mathematical and her skill with numbers secured her a role on Countdown in 1982, the show that cemented her position as one of the most successful and popular female presenters in British TV history.

Carol currently hosts a weekly radio show on LBC, the Pride of Britain Awards and is known for her political activism. She was awarded an MBE in 2000 for her services to broadcasting.
