Former Countdown queen Carol Vorderman recently visited Canning Town’s Peacock Gym.

Vorderman attended the public work-out session of WBO World light-heavyweight champion Nathan Cleverly as he steps up his preparation for a defence of the title against American Tommy Karpency.

As well as posing for photos with the Welsh boxer, she also took time out to have a picture taken with Dembo Jobe, one of the personal trainers at the famous London gym.
