Not many 50-year-old women could wear that! Carol Vorderman wore a skintight top and jeans outfit as she left the ITV studios today
There comes a point in a woman's life when she is finally forced to accept she cannot wear the same type of clothes as she used to.
However, despite having turned 50 earlier this year, that point hasn't yet arrived for Carol Vorderman, who showed off her toned figure in a skintight outfit outside the ITV studios today.
Carol, who has been filling in for Lorraine Kelly on morning show Lorraine, teamed her khaki T-shirt and stonewash denim jeans with black boots as she headed home after her morning's work.
The top is clearly a favourite of Carol's, as she also wore it when she was presented with the rear of the year accolade back in June.
Earlier in the day, mother-of-two Carol opted for a chic black and white bandage-style dress as she presented Lorraine.
And while Carol's programme went smoothly today, off-screen it wasn't quite as manageable for the star.

Carol tweeted fans this morning that thanks to a problem with the heating at the ITV studios, she was suffering in the freezing cold.
She said: 'Inside gossip alert. Heating broken down but air con is still running here,so 10 degrees in dressing room!! Time to get changed... Ouch.'
Carol then added: 'Actually I fibbed. It's minus 25 in here .... Aaaaaarrrggghhhhh!'
Carol has also been struggling with the early morning starts required to present a programme like Lorraine.

She tweeted at 4.30am: 'Just to prove there are two 4.30s in one day (students take note!), am already on my second pot of tea. Off to lovely @ITVLorraine shortly.'
But while the early starts will stop when Lorraine returns, Carol's partnership with ITV will continue as she was recently confirmed as a new panellist on Loose Women.
She and 37-year-old actress Sally Lindsay will be joining the lively daytime chat show in September, ITV confirmed earlier this month.

The appointment of the two new faces comes after the dismissal of regular panellists Zoe Tyler and Kate Thornton.
Carol and Sally are expected to join regulars Lisa Maxwell, 47, Carol McGriffin, 51, Andrea McLean, 41, Denise Welch, 53 and Lynda Bellingham, 63.
Carol is thought to be appearing as co-anchor alongside Andrea, and Sally to replace Tyler on the regular panel.
