I write a lot of educational books and have a big maths website so my time is spent with those too.
In the first two years on Loose I did over 100 days a year but in the last year I have only managed just over 20 days because I kept having to cancel days due to other work commitments.I tried appearing just once a week up until Christmas and I just couldn't do it.The group recorded such songs as a version of The Undertones' hit Teenage Kicks (one of the tracks Vorderman had to identify during the "intros round" when she appeared on Never Mind the Buzzcocks in December 2009 – the series often includes questions from contestants' pasts).During 1984/85 she made regular appearances on the Peter Levy show on Radio Aire, appearing mid-morning to read a story for pre-school children.) It was only then that she discovered that her father had been an active member of the Dutch resistance during the Nazi occupation. Vorderman initially found employment as a junior civil engineer at Dinorwig Power Station in Wales and later as a graduate management trainee in Leeds.
In her spare time, she was briefly a backing singer with friend Lindsay Forrest in the Leeds-based pop group Dawn Chorus and the Blue Tits, fronted by radio DJ Liz Kershaw during the early 1980s.
Vorderman appeared on Countdown from the show's inception until 2008.
Initially, Vorderman's only contribution to the show was the numbers game, and she formed part of a five person presentation team.
She began hosting The Pride of Britain Awards when they were first introduced in 1999.
Vorderman took part in the second series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2004.
However, after the show returned from its summer break in September 2013, she began to host one episode per week with Mc Lean anchoring the remaining four.
