Carol Vorderman has unsurprisingly amassed a huge fortune over the years.
The 57-year-old shot to fame after taking on a role as co-host on the TV show Countdown back in 1982 – before leaving the show in 2008.
In her autobiography, Carol Vorderman: It All Counts, the maths expert detailed how her family lived off very little while growing up.
But, the former Loose Women presenter’s successful career has seen her build up an incredible wealth. So, just how much is her net worth?
According to Spear’s Magazine, the star has an estimated net worth of £18 million.
However, the figure could be very different, as Celebrity Net Worth have claimed it may be more likely around the £7,600,000 ($10 million) mark.
In 2005, The Guardian reported that she could be scooping a pay packet of around £2.3 million annually.
Born in Bedford and raised in Prestatyn, North Wales, Carol has previously spoken about how her mother worked three jobs to support her and her two siblings.
In her autobiography, Carol recalled one heartbreaking moment she saw her mum cry, after Carol lost some money for food, during the “years of struggle and financial hardship”.
After graduating from the University of Cambridge, she worked as a junior civil engineer and later a graduate management trainee.
She later landed her small screen role on Countdown – thanks to the help of her mum, who submitted an application for the job on her behalf.
It’s not known how much she earned while on the show, but Carol told Today FM that in the past, she had been paid three times as much as her late co-host Richard Whiteley.
“The only heated debate Richard and I ever had was when he found out that I was being paid three times more than him,” she said.
After her debut on Countdown, the star went on to release her own autobiography and videos, as well as star in TV adverts.
Following Carol’s departure, Rachel Riley took on the role of co-host on Countdown. What is her net worth?
The 31-year-old could be worth just shy of a cool £4 million, with Celerity Net Worth claiming the exact sum is £3,726,000.
The 55-year-old is an eight-time BAFTA award winner, and, according to Spear’s Magazine, he could be worth a shocking £30 million.
Between 2017 and 2018, his salary for his work at the BBC was listed as between £600,000 and £609,000.
Meanwhile, the year before, the report stated he had earned between £850,000 and £899,000 at the corporation.
However, these figures do not include his fees for his work on his BBC chat show – as these are paid via a production company.
