Carol Vorderman spoke live from her Bristol house on today’s Good Morning Britain. The Countdown legened was up early for the ITV show to surprise Captain Tom Moore with a Daily Mirror Pride of Britain Award.

The 59-year-old unfortunately couldn’t give the astonishing fundraiser the statuette in person due to coronavirus social distancing.

However she spoke from her kitchen in the southwest of England, while Captain Tom was in Milton Keynes.

Carol spoke down the camera to reveal the exciting news from her plush kitchen, during the emotional moment.

The small screen favourite was seen at her computer screen alongside the impressive gong, while her pristine property could be seen in the background.

A large black cooker could be seen on the right-hand side, surrounded by white wooden kitchen cuboards.

The room had a large island in the middle, on which sat a stunning bunch of coorindated blooms.

The centrepiece featured what appeared to be lighting fixtures underneath as well as a breakfast bar, complete with various high stools.

Sadly Carol’s position revealed little else apart from the door to her neutral hallway and a large window.

The star rarely shares snaps of her home on Instagram and Twitter, but no doubt viewers at home were happy to take a cheeky look.

Wearing her brunette tresses down and straight, the mother-of-two’s opted for smokey eye make-up for her appearance.

She also chose a black, high-necked jumper, complete with an eye-catching pattern across it.

Meanwhile, during the latest instalment, Captain Tom was told about his honour by Pride of Britain host Carol, in a moment that also featured stars including Dame Julie Walters, Michael Sheen, Sir David Jason and Rita Ora.

The 99-year-old army veteran has raised £27 million for NHS Charities Together by walking 100 laps of his garden in Marston Moretaine, Bedfordshire.

After receiving thousands of nominations, Pride of Britain’s research panel decided his achievement was so remarkable that they took the unprecedented decision to declare him as a winner before the normal Autumn announcement.

Carol said: “Tom, you have been a huge influence in bringing generations together.

“Over the last 20 years we have given our Pride of Britain Awards to many extraordinary people and quite frankly your kindness, modesty, utter determination and selflessness embodies all that it is to be a Pride of Britain winner.”

She added: “I can’t wait to meet you and hand over your award in person. It is sent with the greatest love and greatest respect.”

Captain Tom then commented: “That is absolutely amazing. It’s very difficult for me to believe things like this. I know the Pride of Britain Award is a very important one, I can’t be more proud to be in a position to receive it from you.

“You are all so, so very kind. I thank all the people who nominated me for this award. I thank you very much because I am very, very humbled at receiving this magnificent award. Thank you all very, very much.”

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
