Countdown legend Carol Vorderman has been inundated with praise by her Instagram followers after revealing that she rescued a stranger during a hike on the Brecon Beacons over the weekend. The maths whizz, 61, recalled the rescue in a post with her 218,000 followers which saw her kindly give a fellow hiker a lift after he locked his keys in his car.
Carol posted a snap from walking enthusiast Tyrone Coburn of the pair in her car as she gave him a lift.
The Tv star dazzled as she grinned at the camera while giving a thumbs-up as Tyrone shared the snap on Facebook.

“Problem was he would have to climb back up a mountain for a signal to ring the AA or walk 5 Miles to the nearest village,” Carol added.
She went on to reveal that she’d kindly offered the hiker a lift so he could get signal and call for help with his car.
Carol continued: “Er Hello….time for a lift.”
She added that the hiker was surprised to realise who she was once in the car, joking that he got “two frights”.
“Always glad to help, just as you would help some other soul too I’m sure
Happy days,” the mother-of-two ended her post.
Tyrone also shared the post to social media, heralding the mathematician for coming to his rescue.
He wrote: “Locked my keys in my car today after walking the horse show in Brecon, had no signal to phone AA and this kind lady Carol Vorderman came to my rescue and gave me a lift to the nearest village so I could ring them.
