Carol Vorderman doubles down in catfight with Baroness Bra

TV personality Carol Vorderman last night doubled down on allegations she made that Government Covid contracts funded the lifestyle of Michelle Mone’s husband – as the former friends’ extraordinary catfight turned bitter.

The two-time Rear of the Year winner launched into a tirade about the PPE scandal on ITV’s This Morning breakfast show, ending by turning to the camera and addressing the embattled lingerie tycoon by saying: ‘Sue me, Michelle.’

The peer, who denies claims she and her children pocketed £29million from the deals, has taken a break from the Lords to defend herself – while the Government sues PPE Medpro for supplying 25 million ‘unusable’ surgical gowns.

In a string of tweets, Miss Vorderman took further potshots at ‘baroness bra’, saying in one post: ‘For some reason or other I feel obliged to reshare this article… noting that after PPE firm linked to them received VIP lane contract MM/Husband/firm bought a jet & a boat & £3m in property for her children’.

She wrote in another: ‘Barrowman (husband) will be on trial in Spain in May for criminal fraud. Last yr police raided their homes & offices, charges pending? It’s claimed that B & Mone illegally benefited from upwards of £58m from PPE Medpro through trusts. You get the gist…’.

A spokesperson for Baroness Mone declined to comment when approached by MailOnline. 

Miss Vorderman earlier told This Morning viewers of her friendship with the baroness and that she ‘dropped her like a stone as soon as I realised what kind of person she was’.

But Baroness Mone, 51, who denies wrongdoing, hit back through a friend, who said in response to Miss Vorderman’s comments: ‘What are the reasons – a hunger for publicity, or maybe her coming to the end of her TV career?’ The friend added that Miss Vorderman’s outburst had been ‘outrageous’, saying: ‘I really don’t understand why Carol has started this attack.’
