It’s the first 24 hours of Carol Vorderman’s ‘two-day bender’ and she’s already suffering a mega hangover.
However, it’s all for a good reason and more than worth it as she is celebrating her daughter Katie getting her PhD.
The former Countdown presenter, 60, announced last night that she was starting a two day drinking binge to celebrate the ‘best news’. She then kept her Instagram followers entertained and updated with blurry drunken selfies and photos of her cocktails before sharing the joyous news.
‘Hungover face…..thank all the gods for sunnies 😂😂😎😎😎 Hurty head and happy heart day all round ❤️😎👌🏼🙋🏼♀️ #ProudMamma,’ she wrote alongside a selfie of her wearing a fur hood and sunglasses.
In a post, she shared a photo of Katie and revealed: ‘Yesterday my girl Katie @katie.science passed her ‘viva’….an interrogation of her PhD thesis by a panel of examiners.
‘She can now call herself DOCTOR KATIE KING.
‘It’s all she has ever wanted to be since bring a little girl. A Cambridge research scientist and then to become an astronaut….like you do 👌🏼🙋🏼♀️😂.’
The TV presenter continued: ‘Her thesis was about the delivery of a new cancer drug. The drug is hydrophobic (doesn’t mix with water) and so can be used instead of a chemotherapy technique as it does not mix with blood. Katie’s research is about how to then deliver it specifically to the tumour. She’s using nanotechnology and in particular gold nano particles.
‘Hopefully at some point this will help cancer sufferers not have to endure the all encompassing effects of chemotherapy. She is part of a big research team working at @cambridgeuniversity and with Astra Zeneca 👌🏼
‘So here’s me as her Mum. So proud. I know all the struggles she’s overcome, and the hard graft she’s put in to become this fine young woman.’
Carol said Katie’s ‘on top of the world’ and ‘so is her little brother Cameron’.
‘What a lucky mother I am. Single parenting ain’t that bad after all,’ she concluded.
Carol share’s Katie and Cameron with ex-husband Patrick King, who she was married to between 1990 and 2000.
No doubt Carol’s followers are bracing themselves for day two of her bender.
