CAROL Vorderman had her bikini picture taken to space thanks to an astronaut pal.
The 58-year-old former Countdown star used to date a space man and asked her Nasa contact to carry out the stunt.
The curvy star boasted about the snap being blasted into space and revealed that she specifically wanted a photo of the pic with the earth behind it.
She commented: “FIRST SUNBATHING IN SPACE?
“Persuaded an astronaut buddy to take my pic to the International Space Station and take a photo of it with the earth behind.”
Carol is obsessed with space and said in December that she’d love to be the first person to have sex off-world.
She said on Loose Women: “I would like to go to space and do naughty things in space.”
Nadia Sawalha then interjected: “Basically she wants to be the first person to have sex in space!”
Carol quickly fired back: “Not by myself!”
Jane Moore then asked if it would be possible with gravity and Carol told her: “That’s what we are debating now.”
The star then opened up about her current relationship status – revealing she is single but dating.
She said: “I have not got a new man. I had the best first date ever.
“It was surreal and he’s an amazing person and he’s not British and he’s not famous.”
Carol previously revealed that she was enjoying dating a string of toyboys and she wasn’t looking for a keeper.

She said: “Not everyone is looking for a keeper, and that’s the point really. Some are… I’m not.
“Surprise surprise! I’m not at all. I couldn’t think of anything worse at the moment to be perfectly honest.”
Carol was last linked to tattooed builder Cas Neill, 49, when the pair attended a black tie gala hosted by Princess Anne last year.
The romance followed her break-up from on-off toyboy lover Graham “Duffy” Duff, who is 14 years her junior.
