Carol Vorderman couldn't wipe the smile off her face last night as stepped out with her man Graham Duff.

Like her fellow 'Loose Women' stars Denise Welch and Carol McGiffin before her, Vorders has found happiness with a toyboy, and the couple looked very much in love as they attended the launch night of the Kooza Cirque Du Soleil at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

Carol and Graham loved very much in love last night

She has been following in Graham's footsteps by learning how to fly, as he is a Red Arrows pilot.

Of her new aviation skills, she recently told Hello magazine: "She told Hello! magazine: 'I'm getting properly hooked as I'm flying most days. You don't worry about things. The rest of the world just disappears."
