During an interview in June, Carol opened up about taking a break from the telly at the moment. She said: "I’m not that bothered about being on the telly anymore. I worked my butt off last year and I don’t want to do it anymore,"
She added: "I was really busy, I was making a couple of new TV shows and books, plus filming new stuff for The Maths Factor. I found lockdown difficult – like everybody. By last Christmas, I was bloated and not well. Tired beyond tired, and I was finding filming not pleasant."
