Loose Woman Carol Vorderman is considering a little renovation work on her body after turning 50 and insists she hasn't dismissed the idea of going under the knife.

The former Countdown host has been wowing male fans with her sexy makeover in recent years - a look which has gone to new extremes since she headed back to the daytime TV on the hit ITV lunchtime show.

Carol showed off her best assets while walking the red carpet in a bust-boosting dress at last month's National Television Awards, but despite being praised for being daring in her 50s, the star is adamant she needs to make some alterations.

In an interview with Woman & Home, she says: "'I'm planning a little rejuvenation for myself this year. I want to fix the things that need fixing. I'm quite lazy, but I do want to get fit and start going to the gym.

"I'm a bit frightened of the idea of a full facelift because, when you look in the mirror, you want to look like yourself.

"But I'll get little things done; I might have an eyelift if I feel I need one in the future, and the lasers that smooth your skin - I'm comfortable with the idea of trying all that.

"There are machines that can get rid of your cellulite, so I want to do that. And my friend has just had a machine that has worked on her neck and tightened the elasticity of the skin. You just need a day off work afterwards, so I'm thinking, why not?"

The mathematician also admits her new social life with the Loose ladies has led to some weight gain.

She adds: "My problem is that I've been socialising quite a lot with friends recently.

"When I get tired, I start eating things that I wouldn't normally crave, like biscuits, because they'll give me a bit of energy to keep going.
"I haven't weighed myself for 12 years, but I know from my clothes I've gone up a dress size.

"It's so easy to do - and I don't regret it because I've been having a great time! But I do know it's time to take myself in hand now."
