Carol Vorderman has been snapped laughing alongside Steph McGovern and Ian Hislop ahead of her long-awaited return to Have I Got News for You.

The former Countdown star, 62, last appeared on the BBC quiz show back in 2006.

She’ll be back again on this week’s episode to chat about current affairs as a panel member alongside the show captains Ian and Paul Merton.

Comedian Nabil Abdulrashid will also be on the panel, while Steph will be the guest host.

On Thursday night Carol, Steph and Ian were seen leaving the studio together arm-in-arm laughing, while at one point he jokingly put his hand up to shield his face from cameras while clutching a glass of wine.

Wearing a form-fitting denim jumpsuit, Carol was rocking some crimped hair, while Steph opted for a bright bomber jacket.

The trio were clearly having a lot of fun, smiling and laughing as they walked and later said their farewells.

Confessing she was anything but a model student, Carol said she once got so riled up she told a nun to ‘f*** off’.

She explained she was ‘always being told off’ and ‘never did her homework’ before revealing she used to sneak out and go to nightclubs in Manchester to meet up with ‘bad boys’ when she was 15.

Have I Got News For You airs on Fridays at 9pm on BBC One.
