Carol Vorderman credits the menopause for her curvaceous figure.

The 58-year-old TV presenter insists she has not had a boob job or bum implants and says medication she is taking for the menopause and her strict workout regime are responsible for her natural curves.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, she said: "Knickers dig into my big bum - so, like most girls, I don't wear them on the red carpet if I'm in a clingy dress. I promise I haven't had bottom implants. It's the same old bottom. In my family, loads of us have it: the Vorderman A**e. My daughter Katie has it. My nephew has it. We're all sticky-out-bottom people. And I've been working out for decades, so the shape of mine is down to years of keeping fit.

"I used to be a size 36. Even when I was in my 20s, I had a healthy-sized bust. I think your bust does grow with hormonal changes. And we all know you put on weight when your bust grows. You have babies; it grows. Then you go through the menopause - I had my last period about a year ago - and it grows a bit more."

Carol takes oestrogen (Oestrogel) and testosterone (Testim) in gel form and oral progesterone tablets and believes a tweak her doctor made to her HRT doses could be responsible for her increased bust size.

She said: "Though I'm not sure - I think this could be another reason why my bust has got bigger."

However, she does have a secret for keeping her curves looking good, with Carol explaining: "I can assure you my bust isn't gravity-defying. I have to hoick them up with a bra, like everyone else."
