Countdown has been running for 26 years now, but the star of the show, Carol Vorderman, is leaving. They asked her to take a 90% pay cut and she said no. Don't grieve for her, she's made a mint out of the programme and the fame it has brought her.
Anyway, apart from being very nice to look at and very nice to listen to - she has one of those velvet voices that soothe even the grumpiest old scrote - she has two wonderful assets:
1 She is a mathematical genius, she can do things with numbers that amaze you
2 She has the best bum I have seen on a woman in many a long year's ogling.
Two causes for ungrudging admiration. And not necessarily in that order.
