Carol Vorderman has once again shown that she knows how to make a big impact with her choice of outfit.

The TV presenter was spotted leaving a restaurant in London wearing a stunning fitted dress that showed the 51-year-old has a figure that most women half her age would love to have.

Wearing a black dress with cap sleeves and a fish-tail design at the hem, Carol accessorised her outfit with a thick patent leather belt that further emphasised her petite figure.

She topped off her look with a pair of high heeled wedge shoes and a pair of dangling hooped gold earrings that brought a touch of colour to her otherwise dark outfit.

Carol may have had a few interesting points to discuss over dinner, as she was carrying three very large books.

The former Countdown co-host has often spoken about how comfortable she is with her figure and when she turned 50 said women often feel happier with their looks as they age.
