The 62-year-old joined hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary to discuss the headlines but her outfit proved a serious distraction for fans.
Former Countdown host Carol showed off her famous curves in the eye-catching all-in-one and finished the look with the clashing footwear.
As usual fans rushed to social media to have their say on her look.
One wrote: “Lady in red, you look awesome Carol.”
Another said: “Red really suits you.”
Someone else commented: “You look amazing as always.”
And a fourth added: “Simply stunning.”
Earlier this week Carol sparked rumours she’s set for a TV comeback.
Carol was visiting the Channel 4 studios that featured the classic Countdown clock in the waiting area – setting tongues wagging that she could be gearing up for a sensational return to the show that shot her to stardom.
The star rose to fame hosting the numbers and letters segment on the show for more than 25 years and so, of course, stopped to take a series of sultry snaps next to the infamous prop.
Looking back fondly on her time on the daytime game favourite, she concluded the post by writing: “5,000 shows, 26 years on air, with only love.”
