One wrote: “Oooh on your way back to the Countdown studio? Have a terrific time wherever you’re going.”

Another said: “Love to see you hosting Countdown.”

But they were wrong about her returning to TV to appear on the show that rocketed her stardom.

Carol has now revealed she will be joining  the cast of Celebrity Googlebox – and she’s bringing a friend along for the ride.

Former MP and broadcaster Gyles Brandreth, already a Gogglebox favourite, will appear alongside Carol.

Carol wrote: “So I’m making my debut this Friday at 9pm on one of my favourite shows of all time and joining the @c4gogglebox gang…with my friend of 40 years @gylesbrandreth.”
