Carol shared a heartwarming story ahead of his race with the Mercedes-AMG team and said he did her a heartwarming favour when they met years ago.

She said the 34-year-old delighted her mother, who was a huge fan of his, and filmed a good luck message for her before her major operation.

Carol wrote on Twitter: “Little story about @LewisHamilton and my Mum for #MotheringSunday #HappyMothersDay

“My Mum, in her 80s, was a Lewis fan and she would sit on the sofa watching @f1 shouting “Go Lewis Go” waving a flag and grinning.Mum loved him. The day before she had to have life saving surgery.

“The day before Mum’s op I saw @LewisHamilton @MercedesAMGF1 and told him about my Mum. He insisted on doing a little video for her wishing her well for her life saving op and he signed my Paddock Pass “Jean, wishing you all the best tomorrow. God Bless. Lewis x”

She added: “Mum wore that Paddock pass signed by @LewisHamilton @MercedesAMGF1 over her hospital gown as she was wheeled off to the Operating Theatre.

“We waited anxiously for hours. Eventually she was wheeled back into her room still sleeping, and the Paddock pass was laid on her chest.

“God Bless YOU @LewisHamilton @MercedesAMGF1 @f1 for making my Mum so very happy when she was nervous about her operation.

“Mum did well after that op and lived for years after. I know she’ll be looking down now and still shouting today.”

Carol recently revealed the secrets behind her curvy bum that sent fans into a frenzy just days ago.

The TV legend won Rear of the Year award in 2011 and 2014 but has now modestly said that her bum was “not news” as she has “always had a huge a***.”

She blamed the  high-waisted jeggings for accentuating her bottom and revealed that as “knickers dig into my big bum” she often goes “commando”.


“I promise I haven’t had bottom implants… I’ve been working out for decades, so the shape of mine is down to years of keeping fit,” she told the Mail Online.

Carol walks seven miles every day and uses a 12kg kettle bell to perform sets of “12 very slow, deep squats”.

“You go down slowly and power up. They’re called goblet squats. They’re much more precise and targeted, and by the end your muscles are screaming!” she said.
