Willie Carson squeezes between Carol Vorderman and BBC presenter at Cheltenham

Energumene may have landed the Champion Chase at Cheltenham on Tuesday – but it was Carol Vorderman and friends who won the internet.

The TV personality has clearly been enjoying herself at the famous Festival over the first two days, wowing fans with her stunning outfits, sexy dances, and Instagram snaps. On Monday, the 62-year-old was pictured enjoying hospitality with singer Gareth Gates, and duly returned for more dramatic action today.

And she wasn't alone, joined by two other celebs in racing legend Willie Carson and sports presenter Jill Douglas. And the Insta pic of the trio left the bulk of her 314,000 followers appreciating the hilarity.

With Douglas and Vorderman posing with arms around each other, the 5ft tall jockey, who rode 3,828 winners in his storybook career, managing to squeeze his head between the glamorous pair: "CHELTENHAM WEDNESDAY. Having a good laugh with Willy [sic] Carson and @jillydouglas….." wrote the former Countdown star.

Asking for "Captions please", her fans duly delivered, with @lee.morrison.7906 referencing the red outfit being sported by Douglas: "Willy Carson with a red hot tip ;)" he wrote.

@il_postino_pat__ joked: "Think I downloaded the wrong free Willy," while @markellison mischievously replied with: "Carol, I never had you down as a lady who liked a little Willie…" @autotails_adventures added: "Think Willy won by a nose."

Vorderman's love of racing extends beyond swigging champagne in the VIP areas though. The star, also an author of educational and diet books, used to own a racehorse called Subway Surf with Richard and Mindy Hammond.

But speaking on Monday, she said: "Subway Surf has been retired. Roger Teal is training a horse that the owners called Vorderman. It's a long story, but I don't think Vorderman will be racing until next year. I'm not an owner, it's a complicated story as to why it's called Vorderman! It's a stunning horse, absolutely beautiful."

Also in attendance on Tuesday was her son, Cameron, while she also tagged the legendary AP McCoy in her Insta post. And 'Vorders' is expected to return on Thursday to enjoy more of the action at the famous festival.
