Carol Vorderman donates private plane to carry PPE to NHS staff during pandemic


Carol Vorderman has donated her private plane to carry personal protective equipment to NHS staff during the coronavirus pandemic.

The aviation enthusiast, 59, shared snaps of herself next to her very own aircraft, which she’s named Mildred, as she revealed plans to use it to help the NHS.

In a post on Twitter, Carol wrote: “My Mildred and I (my aeroplane N242CV) have had some adventures

“BUT I want to tell you that right now she is being used by the amazing people at @BAESystemsAir to ferry PPE to where it’s needed by our #NHS around the country…. #GoMildred #NHSThankYou.”

It comes after Carol unveiled plans to teach children maths during the nationwide lockdown.

Carol revealed she wanted to help parents who are running out of ideas of how to entertain their children at home, and said it will also benefit adults who also struggle with numbers.

Appearing on Good Morning Britain, Carol told hosts Piers Morgan and Lorraine Kelly: “I’m going to go on YouTube to have a maths school for adults. This is the thing I’m most proud of.”

She added: “We know by doing four sessions with auntie Carol a week that a child will advance two and a half years in one year.

“Everyday we have photos of kids from parents who say oh my kid was struggling and now they’re in the top set.”

After Carol said that she would be launching an online adult-only maths classes during the coronavirus pandemic, Piers couldn’t help but make an inappropriate remark.

He said: “Now you’re talking, are you going to wear a mathematical uniform for this?”

He added: “One of the ones adults might enjoy, you know Carol?”

Carol managed to keep her cool, but later wittily remarked: “I’ll tell you what I am not going to do, Piers, which is probably what you would like me to do, it’s teach you how to write ‘boobs’ on a calculator.”
