She's made a name for herself as a TV star with plenty of brains behind her beauty.

But perhaps Carol Vorderman wasn't quite with it when she decided to rent a huge yacht.

The 51-year-old posted a picture of the large vessel to her Twitter page, proudly announcing it was moored at the Bristol docks.

However, it's hardly the weather for a sun-drenched cruise across the bay.

In fact, it's pretty miserable across the British Isles with rain and grey skies dominating this weekend.

That won't put Carol off though, the former Countdown presenter always seem to be of a sunny disposition.

Earlier this week Miss Vorderman made headlines when she left the ITV Studios, after filming Loose Women, wearing a tight-fitting red dress that accentuated her rather shapely rear.

The next day she was seen celebrating a win on the horses while at the Cheltenham Races with Michelle Mone.

Carol credits her good looks to genes alone, telling Piers Morgan: 'When it comes to surgery though, I won’t even get involved with it all.

'It has been reported that I have had so much done and if it was all true I’d look a lot better than I do.'

Speaking on an episode of the new Life Stories series, Carol added: 'How you look now has become ridiculously disproportionate to what you do. Critics are more harsh on female presenters.

'When you type, “mutton dressed as lamb” into Google, I’m the first 10 pages. I don’t mind it being written, it goes over my head.

'People think I’m glamorous but in fact I love going back to Bristol and having no make-up for four days.'
