The television presenter detailed the work she had done helping to teach children maths and how she now gets children calling her ‘Aunt Carol’.

She said: ‘Last year through my online maths school The Maths Factory by Pearson we managed to help 500,000 primary school children through the first lockdown.

‘Normally we would charge a subscription of about £1 a week but we made it free for all children for many critically important months.

‘I’m very proud of our team and of all the work the children did through that time.’

She continued: ‘I get young children coming up to me every week now and calling me “Aunty Carol” and saying how they love maths. 

‘Even one of our Pride Of Britain winners last week had been using the school and went from low set to top set in that time.

‘I love teaching and I love to see children understand their numbers, and then love to see how they enjoy playing with them….numbers become their friends, not something to fear xx.’

Carol said she was determined to help those less advantaged get the education they deserved. 

She explained: ‘I’m getting ever deeper involved with education and have been giving a lot for bursaries for young people to study engineering for a while now.’

‘Young people from a similar background to me…..state school and on free school meals. Young people who may otherwise not get a chance.’

‘Life is good,’ she concluded happily.

It comes after Carol was in a sentimental mood last week as she marked 39 years since Countdown was first broadcast. 

Taking to Instagram, the mathematician shared a still of herself from the first episode aged 21.  

She wrote: ’39 years ago today I started on the telly with my beloved Richard Whiteley on Countdown as the first ever show broadcast on the new channel 4. 

‘I was 21. We had 23 cheeky, happy, laughing years together until he died. The clock stopped too soon and I still miss him

‘We were so excited about the 1st show 1982. I had a proper job then & Countdown was an extra.

‘We never thought it would last beyond the 8 weeks it was booked for! I was paid £20 a show which was a fortune to me. Richard & I worked hard. I made 5,000 shows over 26 years.’ 

Richard passed away in 2005 after an unsuccessful emergency operation for endocarditis due to heart problems.
