Carol Vorderman has said the thought of sharing her life with someone again makes her feel “sick”.

The former Countdown host, 60, has been married twice in the past but is currently enjoying the single life.

And The Telegraph quoted her as saying: “The thought of sharing my life with someone again makes me feel positively sick.”

The television star was married to her first husband Christopher Mather from 1985 to 1986 and tied the knot with management consultant Patrick King in 1990. They spent a decade together and had two children before splitting in 2000.

Vorderman was later in a relationship with PR consultant Des Kelly, but they went their separate ways around 13 years ago.

The star has previously said she just can’t picture herself walking down the aisle again in the future.

Speaking to the Daily Mail in 2013, she said: “I can’t see myself getting married again. I don’t think marriage is best suited to me.”

Vorderman suggested she doesn’t necessarily believe in the idea that there is one true love of your life, who you are meant to be with forever.

“Little girls are taught that there should be this Prince Charming, then you get married and stay together forever,” she said.

“But this notion that you meet one person when you’re young and stick together for 60 or 70 years is unrealistic.”
