READ: Carol Vorderman's swanky Bristol home with palatial décor – see inside"I read Engineering here many years ago in only the 3rd year when"boys" colleges also began to take girls in too. 300 students studying engineering that year, including about 4 girls. Things in education have improved since then.

"But my college took a chance on me. I was from a comprehensive school on free school meals in North Wales and a year ahead of my time (I went to uni age 17), the differences between comp schools and private schools were extreme. But my college were believers, and still are, in helping kids from poorer backgrounds as long as they're bright and work hard.

Carol (left) and Katie (right), both aged 9"I love my college and I give back with joy and thanks. This weekend was the first big college dinner for two years, So Katie and I went both wearing our black academic gowns."Carol went on to muse about the way women who enjoy typically"geeky" subjects and pastimes are often misrepresented, calling for things to change.

"We also dance, laugh, enjoy mischief, cook, super fit, into fashion, love sport, go wild, travel [….] I can give you examples on a daily basis but that's for another time. Go geek girls...go ALL all have value."Carol's fans were loving the positive message, with one enthusing:"Love the picture. Love the message. Keep being a science inspiration, Carol!" Others couldn't get over the similarities between the two women, calling them"twins" and praising the pair for their hard work.

Brown's 39th birthday by sharing never-before-seen photos of their relationship on Instagram. Had to Google him to find out who he was. And there was a lot of “was” there. He was a football player. He was on The Bachelorette. He was on The Bachelor. I just watched Coming out. Very impressed. Jealous! I have so many same concerns that were addressed in the show. Thank you for putting that together. I am an old fat balding gay white guy with minimal self esteem. Would you host/put my coming out party together?
