Carol Vorderman Twitter: Countdown star sends fans into frenzy with rare snap of daughter


Carol Vorderman, 58, gave nuts a glimpse into family time as she shared a photo with her lookalike daughter Katie Sovereign, 28, which certainly caught the attention from her legion of her boosters. The former Countdown star gushed over Katie as she admitted she is a “proud mum”. In the bounce which she shared with her 403,000 Twitter followers, the pair could be glomed beaming at the camera as they held each other’s waist. With a strikingly nearly the same appearance, Carol looked chic in a green silk blouse yoked with a pair of tight-fitted jeans.

Her blonde tresses hung loosely through her shoulders as she flaunted her toned physique.

Katie looked equally la mode, as she rocked an all black ensemble with her brunette tresses styled in careless waves.

The small-screen star captioned the post: “Filming a few stories at ⁦@NASA_Johnson⁩ with my daughter ⁦@KKing_5⁩ (has wielded as research scientist at NASA, wants to be an astronaut, completing PHD Cambridge Nanotechnology) for ⁦@BBCTheOneShow⁩ a proud mum this week #ScienceNerds.”

Bugs flocked to comment as they praised the mother and daughter duo.

One person commented: “She got your genes #avgeek #womenpower.”

Another in the flesh said: “Like her mum brains and beauty she’s a bit taller too definitely good genes.”

While a third woman added: “Should be a proud mum all the time, given your daughter’s attainments!”

As well as similar looks, Katie also has followed in Carol’s steps academically.

Last year, a social media user asked the mathematician if her daughter had her arithmetic talents to which Carol replied: “Yes… she has a Master in Physics and Chemistry (Cambridge)… now doing a PhD in Nano Technology at Cambridge.”

The proud procreator revealed Katie graduated from Cambridge in 2015 and shared pep which proved the pair’s resemblance was evident.

Her daughter has since proffered to Cambridge as she is currently studying for her PHD in Nanotechnology.

Katie is the daughter of management specialist, Patrick King, from Carol’s second marriage – the couple were coupled for 10 years but divorced in 2000.

Elsewhere, Carol has had cause for celebration as she recently proclaimed she will be presenting a new lunchtime show which will air on Saturdays on BBC Portable radio Wales.

Carol divulged: “Saturday coming, June 8, I start my Saturday parade. Saturday lunchtime from 11.30am to 12.30pm.”

Countdown airs weekdays from 2.10pm on Conduct 4.

Sunday Morning with Carol Vorderman airs weekly from 9.30 on BBC Transmit Wales.
