Carol Vorderman looked a little out of sorts when she stepped out on a airfield, earlier today.

The Loose Women anchor appeared to be missing her neck as she tried to battle against the strong 35mph winds in Gloucestershire.

She normally looks rather stylish in tight fitting dresses with not a hair out of place but the 51-year-old was less than glamorous in today's outfit.

Missing part: Carol Vorderman lost her neck as she sheltered from the wind

Carol was in the area to take to the skies in an ex-RAF training jet as it performed acrobatics in the windy conditions.

Walking
from the safety of the air hanger to the plane took its toll on the
former Countdown star who tried to take refuge inside her black coat.

Unfortunately for Carol, the defensive stance gave the impression that she was without her neck.

Trendy The presenter wore a khaki green jumpsuit for the flight in Gloucestershire

The 'Rear of
the Year' winner had to don a less-than stylish khaki green jumpsuit
which she teamed with brown ankle boots, before boarding the plane.

Keen amateur pilot Carol, who is
working towards taking her Private Pilot's Licence, was flown by
experienced Mark Greenfield at Cotswold Airport, in Kemble,
Gloucestershire.

She flew in a Bulldog plane to celebrate the start of this year's Best of British aviation show and raise money for charity.

Dishevelled: The Loose Women star's barnet was battered by 35mph wind

The brainbox was put through her paces
during the 20 minute flight, performing air acrobatics, including
dangerous stall turns – where the engine is switched off.

After the death-defying flight, Carole said: 'I'm very happy. I absolutely loved it.

'We did stall turns and I did two or three loops myself – I'm very happy. I looped-the-loop.'

Carol is a patron of the RAF Benevolent Fund, which helps former servicemen and their families.

Pilot Mark Greenfield joked: 'She's a bit of a screamer.

'She swore all the whole way through the flight.'

The Best of British show takes place on the August Bank Holiday weekend at the Gloucestershire airport.
