Carol Vorderman didn't want to be with boyfriend 'forever'
Carol Vorderman has revealed she decided to split from pilot Graham Duff last year because she didn't see a future with him
Carol Vorderman split from her boyfriend because she didn't want to be with him "forever".
The 54-year-old presenter ended her two-year relationship with pilot Graham Duff last year and says she thinks she is going to have the "best year ever" as a result.
She said: "Last year I made to big decisions. I came off 'Loose Women' as there were other things I wanted to do.
"And I came out of a relationship which had run its course. He wanted it to be forever and have the commitment that goes with it and I absolutely did not.
"It was two great freedoms, I look at my diary and it's the best year ever. I'm loving my life and have found my next chapter."
Carol has been married twice in the past and says her relationship with second spouse, Patrick King - with who she has children Katie, 22, and Cameron, 18 - was the best she has had because he understood her need for independence.
She told HELLO! magazine: "Paddy was the only one who got it. He completely understood.
"I loved him very much and we were very happy for a long time. He's very bright and funny and he gave me a lot of space.
"He didn't try to crowd me. He understood I need space. We matched each other. He never felt threatened by me."
