There wasn’t a fashion conundrum in sight as former Countdown host Carol Vorderman made a glamorous appearance at Cheltenham Racecourse on Tuesday afternoon. 

The maths whizz made sure her wardrobe added up by tastefully teaming a skintight black jumpsuit with a camel coat on day one of the 2020 Cheltenham Festival

With a belted waist, the outfit served to accentuate Carol’s famous curves as she rubbed shoulders with fellow guests at the Gloucestershire event.

The 59-year old added to her look with a wide-brimmed hat, but with string winds gusting across site she was forced to hold onto her head-wear while posing for pictures. 

Not letting the cool weather rain on their parade, many female racegoers were pictured braving the chill to begin the four-day race, which originated in 1860, in style.

On Tuesday Cheltenham chiefs confirmed the latest confirmed case of coronavirus would not affect the four-day fixture that begun with Champion Day on Tuesday.

The most recent case, the third in Gloucestershire, was diagnosed over the weekend and then announced hours before the start of the four-day Festival.

Princess Anne’s son Peter Phillips, 42, and his wife Autumn, 41, were seen arriving to the festival around midday, with Autumn cutting a chic figure in a khaki blazer, trousers and suede black court shoes while Peter opted for a tweed cap and navy suit. 

The couple, who announced their separation last month, proved they remain on good terms as they strode into Cheltenham Racecourse side by side.

The four-day event is held just a short drive from Gatcombe Park, Princess Anne’s Gloucestershire estate where Autumn and Peter continue to live while they co-parent their daughters, Savannah, nine, and Isla, seven. 

It was reported last month that Peter and Autumn informed their families of their ‘amicable’ decision to divorce ‘at the end of last year’ after deciding it was ‘the best course of action for their two children and ongoing friendship’. 

Joining the royal brigade, the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Tindall was also spotted arriving with Mike after her brother Peter, donning a buttoned wool trench by Guinea, a Juliette Botterill Millinery hat, a Rebecca Taylor dress from Trilogy Stores, LK Bennet boots, a hat and an Aspinal Saddle bag.

On Monday some horses had already arrived at the course by the time news of the latest case of coronavirus was made official, leading some racing fans to worry about the possibility of a last-minute change to the schedule.

But on Monday a Cheltenham Racecourse spokesman confirmed there were no plans to postpone the event, saying: ‘British Racing has been in close communication with the Government.

‘We welcome the guidance that the business of the country should continue as usual at this time, while ensuring we adhere to the latest public health advice in full.’
