Carol Vorderman proved she's as cool as ice as she was dipped into a freezing cryo-chamber while wearing nothing but a bikini and furry boots for protection.

The star, who celebrated her 60th birthday this year, screamed as she was immersed in the chamber as the temperature plummeted to a bone-chilling -196°C.

In what must have felt like an incredibly long three minutes, Carol tried to distract herself by singing and imagining herself on a hot beach.

Sharing a video of the treatment on Instagram, Carol wrote: "CRYO….COOOOLLDDDD….in a bikini and furry boots and thermal gloves…got it down to MINUS 196C today…..omg three minutes for healing and health…..loved it actually….Stops me being a wuss."

Cryotherapy is a treatment to tackle muscle pain and is popular with athletes, including David Beckham, but also has wellness and beauty benefits.

Fitness fanatic Carol frequently shares updates on her wellness journey on social media, and recently posted a series of glamorous shots of herself paddle boarding during her idyllic Welsh getaway.

The star, who has been praised for her body positive attitude, also recently confessed to accidentally revealing more than she intended after a wardrobe malfunction during Ascot which saw her figure hugging dress split from top to bottom at the zip.

However it's not all beach selfies for Carol. Earlier this month, she was praised for opening up about her childhood and the horrific abuse her brother Anton faced for having a cleft lip and palate.

"He was eight years older than me and didn't like to go out because of how he looked,” Carol wrote on Instagram. “I called him 'my little daddy' because our father had abandoned me, not my brother or sister, he refused to meet me from when I was two weeks old. I don't know why, still to this day.

She added: "We were very poor, he was always kind and yet he suffered a lot of abuse because of how he looked and he grew and still is one of the kindest, most generous, funny, loving, successful people I've ever known."

Carol has been a patron of the Cleft Lip and Palate Association for 20 years, a charity which helps children born with the condition in Eastern Europe, many of whom have been abandoned in orphanages.
