Carol Vorderman finally explains why she was naked on that treadmill
Carol Vorderman has finally explained how she managed to end up 'covered in burns' after falling naked on a treadmill.
The former Countdown number-cruncher last month tripped while using the exercise machine and ended up trapped against a wall.
Vorderman (54) was naked at the time and sustained burns to her body. She revealed the mishap to her 330,000 Twitter followers.
“It's hilarious. Pain? I fell off a treadmill running naked (don't ask). Now covered in burns and doctor's dressings!” she wrote at the time.
Speaking to The Sun, she revealed she now laughs about the incident.
“I was boiling so I decided to step off the treadmill and take my clothes off,” she said.
“The problem was when I stepped back on I forgot the belt was running so I slipped and fell on to my back.
“I was holding on to the hand bar, but the whole time the belt was running against my skin. I had really bad grazes all over my arms, legs and back and had to go to the doctor.”
