Carol Vorderman doesn't play by anyone else's style rules.

Never one to blend into the crowd, the 55-year-old tv personality dazzled in a red sequin gown at the Military Awards in London on Wednesday night.

The former Countdown presenter, fresh from her stint in the I'm A Celebrity jungle, recently said the secret to her famous figure is eating well and weight training.

"I love walking.  I’m also starting some weight training now; after the age of 50 we lose muscle fast, so I’ll let you know how I get on after my first 90 days pushing and pulling dumbbells," she told Now magazine.

"Squats can get you every time, especially if you haven’t done them regularly. I have a huge bottom but it lifts quickly after a few routines."

The mother-of-two even had a reunion with her "jungle buddie" Ola Jordan at the exclusive event hosted by The Sun, commemorating soldiers in the British military.
