Carol Vorderman kicks off Pride of Britain Awards with Dominic Cummings dig

Carol Vorderman kicked off The Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards tonight on ITV by making a savage dig at Dominic Cummings.

The 59-year-old former Countdown star, who is also best known for appearing on Loose Women and starring in Strictly Come Dancing, I'm a Celebrity and Stand Up To Cancer Great British Bake Off, has returned to host the awards tonight.

And she did not hold back during her introduction as she took a savage swipe at the Conservative politician.

While presenting the annual awards show at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, Carol started off her introduction by talking about how bizarre 2020 has been.

It was then that she made the dig at Cummings who divided the nation after he famously drove to his family to Barnard Castle in Durham during lockdown and while infected with Covid-19.

Cummings claimed he was just testing his eyesight after losing his vision due to the virus.

Making the dig, Carol said: "It’s not just our venue that’s different.

"Whether you’ve been working at the kitchen table, home schooling the kids, teaching your nan to zoom, or even taking a day trip to Barnard Castle, they have been tough times for us all."

  • Carol Vorderman accused of 'taking public for idiots' after claiming bum is down to squats

Viewers immediately rushed to their personal Twitter accounts to share their thoughts on the dig.

One tweeted: "@carolvorders throwing shade at Dominic Cummings… yes! #PrideOfBritain."

A second said: "You go @carolvorders taking a dig at Cummings #PrideOfBritain."

"LOVED Carol Vordeman’s dig at Dominic Cummings there… #PrideOfBritain," tweeted another.

However, some viewers were left angered by the remark.

One said: "Carol Voderman taking a shot at Dominic Cummings and they haven’t handed out a trophy yet – p****s me off, I’m turning over #PrideOfBritain."

"Switched over as soon as that comment was made," tweeted another snowflake.

"it's barely 30 seconds in and carol just dragged dom cummings through the mud," said another.
