Mathematical boffin and Countdown presenter Carol Vorderman has launched a daily workout game for the brain called MIND AEROBICS. The interactive grey matter exercise plan will be available to play online, by mobile phone or by interactive TV.
Carol an avid promoter of cholesterol reducing spreads that taste remarkably like butter, was asked how did she manage to find the time to embark on a major project like this when she already had lots of TV commitments.
She replied that she was forced into this as she had recently taken out a secured loan and was having trouble paying it off due to the crippling interest.
A spokesman for TESCO said that although this did not represent a massive increase in Vorderman's income, every little helps.
Carol is expected to open a new building society account if she can manage to put aside a bit each month.
