UK television star Carol Vorderman shared a photo of herself and her lookalike daughter to social media over the weekend and fans couldn’t get over how similar the pair looked.

The former Countdown host, 59, took to Twitter to promote her new series The Maths Factor, an online maths school for school children during the pandemic, and uploaded the picture. In the snap, Carol looked stunning as she posed alongside her 29-year-old daughter Katie, who’s also a teacher on the new series, in a pair of tight-fitting black pants and a matching top, while her daughter opted for a red long-sleeve shirt and black pants.

“Newly out today…..Year 7 Maths on ⁦my maths school @themathsfactor,” Carol captioned the post. “The teachers are me AND my daughter Katie ⁦@KKing_5 (now a research scientist….. and a great teacher herself) #LikeMotherLikeDaughter.”

A number of fans of the popular television presenter couldn’t get over the uncanny similarities between the mother and daughter duo. “You look like sisters,” Twitter user @fadb05d3b4ec4de wrote. And @rydmorgan also added: “Look like sisters.” While @DavieJo06810466 congratulated the pair on their new series, writing: “Well done guys.”

This isn’t the first time the mother-daughter duo have been compared to one another. Carol uploaded a side-by-side snap of the pair at the same young age of 10, and at a quick glance, you’d think they’re the same person, and fans seem to think so as well. “Wow look exactly the same,” one commentator wrote at the time. While another added: “Look how alike they are?!?”

Countdown made an unlikely sex symbol of Carol, a maths whizz who appeared on the show for 26 years alongside long-time host, the late Richard Whiteley. Carol started out as a demure-looking 21-year-old Cambridge graduate who amazed viewers with her ability to perform mental calculations, but went on to become a glamorous pin-up for daytime TV fans, releasing diet and exercise videos and appearing on numerous other TV programs. She was even named Rear of the Year in 2011 and 2014.
