You know when you're on the treadmill naked and then you fall off and injure yourself? No?
Carol Vorderman has revealed that she’s ‘covered in burns and doctor’s dressings’ after an unfortunate accident. But don’t worry, it’s not quite as horrific as it sounds. Carol sustained the injuries while doing the high-risk activity of running on a treadmill – in the nude.
What started as a conversation on Twitter about the pitfalls of predictive text (she took to social media to bemoan her phone changing Lorraine Kelly’s first name to ‘Koreans’) soon became an admission of her slightly bizarre mishap.
‘I fell off a treadmill running naked (don’t ask).’ she tweeted, before going on to describe her injuries.
Don’t ask?! Oh, Carol, we have SO many questions. Is this a new, Gwyneth Paltrow-approved naked running fad? Does it burn more calories? Or had you simply forgotten to put a wash on?
While we feel sorry for Carol being bruised and battered from her experience, she herself admits ‘it’s hilarious’, and we kind of have to agree with her on that one.
Still, there’s no denying that Carol, 54, is in great shape, and that her workouts (naked or not) are obviously working wonders when it comes to maintaining her great bod.
Let this be a lesson to gym bunnies everywhere – never take to the treadmill in the buff!
