CAROL THATCHER is the daughter of the former UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. She was educated at University College London, and
then worked as a freelance writer, broadcaster and author.
Carol was Queen of the Jungle in ITV's 2005 I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here. She started as an outsider but people were won over by her plucky attitude. Upon it being disclosed that she would
be participating in I'm a Celebrity, Carol said "I haven't told my mother. She'll think, 'Rather her than me'. She wouldn't like to give up that hairdo and power heels. She'll probably be very
critical. I can't say it's her sort of show so I might just tell her I've done it when I get back." Carol's give it a go approach to I'm a Celebrity won her many fans. Of course, the fact that
she can't smell or taste anything helped her with some of the challenges.
CAROL THATCHER told BBC Radio 4's Today that she regarded her late father, of whom she has written a biography, as "a role model for
consorts from 1979 to 1990. He always used to say the role entailed being always present, never there."
Only days after returning from Australia, Carol Thatcher was on TV again this time presenting the award for Best Television Comedy at the British Comedy Awards 2005.
In 2008, CAROL THATCHER wrote the autobiographical book, Swim on Part in the Goldfish Bowl: A Memoir.
