Carol Vorderman reveals she's STILL got her Christmas decorations up – and will be keeping them in place all year

GLITZY festive fairy lights are STILL shining out from Carol Vorderman's home weeks after Christmas – and she's adamant she's keeping them there for the entire year.

The I'm A Celeb favourite is pepping up her January blues with a combination of the sparklers and a few sessions between the sheets.

Maths ace Carol confessed exclusively to The Sun Online while she reluctantly stashed her "beautiful" yet costly light-up reindeer away until the next December 25, the bulbs were a keeper.

Talking of what made her feel low in January, she told us: "I had a brilliant full-size lit up reindeer from John Lewis this year.

"It was £85 or something, that was fantastic in my lounge, it was beautiful.

"When that disappeared I got a bit dull.

"The kids took the sparkly lights from outside the front window and I was like 'oh no no, they are staying' so I've left them up now.

"People are saying 'do you know you've still got your lights up' and I say 'yes' and I want them there."

Promoting a Blue Monday survey by Heathrow Express and a formula for happiness, Carol posed for a photoshoot at London's Paddington Train Station complete with plumped-up Emoji cushions crying with laughter.

Talking about the Beat the January Blues survey, the TV star – who has previously been hailed as Rear of the Year – said getting into bed always put a smile on her face and revealed: "I particularly agree with number four, getting into bed when the sheets are freshly washed. It's just everything.

"Or finding a tenner in the pocket of a coat you haven't used for a long time or walks in the countryside getting fresh air gives you a great endorphin rush."

She added: "The reason we get fed up in January is we have the high of Christmas and NY parties in December and having a laugh, the Christmas lights are twinkling.

"Suddenly it's taken away from us and we are left with grim and wet weather.

"I'm a little bit sad at the moment because the weather for flying has been rubbish.

"That's kept me grounded on a few days I could have got up in the air.

"It's not like flying in California, let me tell you."

One thing that's bound to put a smile on Carol's face during this dreary month is her former campmates on the ITV show.

Carol exclusively told us of their "outrageous" banter on their joint What's App group and said: "The I'm A Celeb gang are all on What's App group and the crying with laughter Emoji gets used most of all.

"It's quite outrageous our What's App group, which is funny.

"Adam (Thomas) lost his phone, and it was him who set up the group so we were trying to add people and all that kind of thing thinking 'Adam!!'.

"But he's back now so obviously it's got louder."

She refused to budge on their particular details of their gossip, or elaborate on in-show love interest Joel Dommett, yet added: "Joel's just back from Kenya then think he's back from Mexico, he's doing his new series.

"But we are all on the group. It's fantastic actually."
