Carol Vorderman 'couldn't be prouder' as she poses with rarely-seen son Cameron after he graduated with master's degree

CAROL Vorderman 'couldn't be prouder' as she posed with her rarely-seen son Cameron after he graduated with master's degree.

The Countdown star took to her Instagram Story to share a video of her youngest who has overcome barriers to succeed in further education with his special needs.


Carol gushed with pride after revealing Cameron has graduated with a Masters degree from the University of Dundee.

Cameron, 24, looked dapper in his graduation robes as he posed alongside his famous mum.

Carol showed off her curves in a chic long-sleeved black dress with a pencil skirt that flattered her figure.

The TV presenter, who also has 30-year-old daughter Katie, wrote on her Instagram: "Such a wonderful day @dundeeuni.

"So Cameron was in a special school with severe learning difficulties for most of his early life but he's worked hard and learned strategies and boy how he's turned it all around.

"I couldn't be prouder of him."

She added: "We never dared to dream this day might come when he graduated with a first class honours last year and now a Masters degree in Animation and VFX….

"Thank you Dundee for giving him all that you have over the last year. Amazing"

Just yesterday Carol shared a shot with her son as they prepared for his big day.

The maths whizz wrote over the photo: "My Cameron and I on our way to Dundee for his Masters Graduation tomorrow #specialneeds #learningdifficulties"

It comes as she revealed the extent of his learning disabilities in an interview in September.

The 60-year-old recalled how she was left feeling “lost and heartbroken” when he was “rejected” by his school after he was branded “disruptive” and deemed “unteachable”.

Despite all this, Cameron completed a master’s degree and mum Carol couldn’t be more proud.

But she admitted it was a struggle to get where they are today after being abandoned by the mainstream education system early on. 

Speaking candidly about how tough it was as a family, Carol – who had split from his father Paddy King at that time – said: “By six, this child I loved so much, that I would have done anything for, was being rejected — by the school, by the teachers, by the other pupils. It was heart-breaking, utterly heartbreaking.
