Carol Vorderman thanks ‘bloody marvellous’ fans after leaving BBC show over social media guidelines | Ents & Arts News

Carol Vorderman expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming support from her fans after leaving her BBC radio show due to the corporation’s new social media guidelines. The former Countdown co-host made the announcement of her departure on Wednesday, stating that she was not willing to lose her voice on social media.

In a video post on Instagram, Vorderman thanked her supporters and praised them as “bloody marvellous”. She mentioned that she recorded the clip when she got home on Wednesday night.

Celebrities such as Alan Carr, Dame Kelly Holmes, Cat Deeley, and Joe Lycett expressed their respect, admiration, and support for Vorderman. They left comments on her original Instagram post where she announced her decision.

In her statement, Vorderman explained the reasons behind her decision to leave and condemned the changes to her radio contract that would have restricted her from expressing her political beliefs on social media. She also expressed her sadness over leaving her friends at Radio Wales.

Vorderman has been a vocal critic of the UK government and had previously engaged in arguments with Tory MPs. The new guidelines prohibiting attacks on political parties led to her decision to leave the show.

A spokesperson for the BBC thanked Vorderman for her work and contribution to the station over the past five years.
