Carol Vorderman has liked posts regarding speculation about her “very interesting” next chapter, after announcing she had left her BBC Radio Wales show on Wednesday, due to breaching new guidelines.
Taking to her social media pages, the presenter told fans she wasn’t prepared to stay silent about her political views and therefore had to leave, as part of a lengthy statement.
She explained that the management at BBC Wales had decided she “must leave” as a result.
Carol, 62, is no stranger to sharing her thoughts about the latest current affairs online, however the BBC states that all colleagues “should ensure their activity on social media platforms does not compromise the perception of or undermine the impartiality and reputation of the BBC, nor their own professional impartiality or reputation and/or otherwise undermine trust in the BBC”.
At the end of her statement today, Carol revealed she was now looking forward to moving on with her career, alongside a wink emoji.

On her Instagram post, many others, including Alan Carr, shared supportive messages in response to her decision.
The comedian wrote: “Big respect Carol,” while Denise Van Outen shared a love heart and kiss emoji.

Carol has been a stand-in host and guest on LBC many times, most recently sitting in for James O’Brien last month.
During the show, she didn’t shy away from her views on past and present Tory dealings.
In a conversation with listeners, she also asked for their views on what they would change about the parliamentary system.
Carol’s latest appearance sparked many to share their thoughts about her hosting in the comments section.
One wrote: “Can’t thank you enough for using your platform for good.”
A second added: “You did well with this. The people need this election more than ever.
“I just would love to see your country return to a more civilized state of life.”
A third commented: “You are my hero Carol, please keep talking about these dreadful inequalities.”
Others questioned if she was right for the discussion given her wealth, although she has openly admitted to being raised in poverty with very little income before her own success.
