Carol Vorderman has shared a series of snaps in a stunning red dress to mark her appearance on ITV gameshow Beat the Chasers tonight.

The 61-year-old TV and radio star and author can be seen wearing the figure-hugging lace dress, posing with other celebrities on the show. 

The first photo features a side-on profile, showing off her waved hair. Others show her with the show's host Bradley Walsh, 61, who wears a navy suit and bright handkerchief in his pocket, and and fellow contestant and media medic, Dr Zoe Williams, 41, in a 70s-inspired geometric slit dress.

Fans have reacted to Vorderman's unmissable look, with one commenting, "Gorgeous in red", many saying she looks "stunning", and another describing the dress as "breathtaking".

The caption to her post gives a nod to new friendship with Williams and old friendships with Walsh and Mark Labbett - known as 'Mark the Beast' for his ruthless quizzing skills. 

Carole's caption reads: "On Beat The Chasers tonight @itv 9pm.

"Even though we recorded it a long long time ago it was lovely to meet @drzoewilliams...hello missus.

"And to be with my old muckers @markthebeastlabbett and @bradderswalsh....

"Hope you enjoy it.

"Sending all good thoughts."

Walsh called it a "a meeting of minds".
