Re: Re:Carol V

One of my friends visited the Countdown studio 20-odd years ago, being a friend of one of the producers (or the director; I forget). She was shown around the set and introduced to Carol Vorderman, who invited her to play the part by taking some number cards off the desk and putting them up on the rack. Turns out Carol is short and she has a box to stand on behind the desk, to bring her eyeline up to normal camera height. She said to my friend, "Gently now, you're standing on Carol's box."
