What happened on Carol’s wedding day?

Carol also revealed how, on her wedding day, she changed into a racy number that shocked attendees.

She said on her BBC Radio Wales show in 2020: “I went into the 3-2-1 costume department – remember 3-2-1 with Ted [Rogers]? You know 3-2-1 Dusty Bin?

“And I found a frock to wear at night time – it was like something they now wear in Strictly Come Dancing. It was entirely mesh with sequins in the right places.”

“So I had this thing that was probably not appropriate for a bride and I got on the stage and sang It’s Raining Men.”
