Carol Vorderman puts heartbreak behind her at the races

by hellomagazine.com Carol Vorderman looked upbeat and carefree as she attended the British Champions Day at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday, following her split from boyfriend of two years Graham Duff.

The TV presenter, 53, and Graham, 39, separated "a number of weeks ago", according to her agent.

"It's sad for both of them but Carol felt it has naturally run its course as relationships sometimes do," her spokesperson said.

He continued: "She decided that it would be best to bring it to an end as amicably as possible, so they separated a number of weeks ago."

Carol's appearance on Saturday is her first public outing since she broke the news to The Mirror.

The former Countdown co-host looked stunning in a tight-fitting grey dress, which she accessoried with a matching bag and nude heels.

She topped off her look with light grey gloves and a cosy winter jacket, which kept her warm during the day.
