Former Countdown star Carol Vorderman is going to publish a political diary exploring how she “exposed the incompetence and lies” of the Conservative Government.

Out Of Order: What’s Gone Wrong With Britain And One Woman’s Mission To Fix It will be published on Sept 12 and will be supported by her Carol Vorderman Live! Out Of Order tour across 11 dates in the UK.

The book is billed as “part diary, part political manifesto” and sees Vorderman “reveal the intricate web of influence responsible for our nation’s unravelling”.

Vorderman, 63, said: “I’ve been fighting this appalling Tory government with evidence and data, looking into the morally corrupt and questionable contracts they’ve signed with donors and associates.

“It’s endless, and exhausting and heartbreaking. I’ve never known this country in such a state, with so little help and hope offered to those who need it.

“But the tide has turned and I’m proud to have been a part of it.”

She added: “Out Of Order explores the blatant hypocrisy of those who govern us and how they make the system work for them and not for us.

“It’s a rollicking read including the fights, being bullied, Tory resignations, and what goes on behind the scenes, but I hope it will show you how your voice can be heard. Together we’re stronger.”

The announcement comes after Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister, indicated that the next general election will be in the second half of this year.

General election looming

Publisher Headline said the book showed “how we can all find our voice and stand up for what we believe in” with an election looming.

The book announcement comes months after Vorderman left her BBC radio show after the broadcaster introduced new social media guidelines.

The TV star, who has been vocal in her criticism of the Government on social media, said she was “not prepared to lose my voice” before joining LBC to front a new Sunday programme.

At the time, she said she would be using her voice “to cause a commotion” and “hold the corrupt to account without fear or favour”.

Vorderman will perform 11 shows across the UK from September 13 to 30, including in Manchester, Oxford, Birmingham, Cardiff and Doncaster.

Yvonne Jacob, the deputy publishing director, said: “Since the moment I joined Headline, Carol Vorderman has been at the top of my target list.

“Carol’s tireless campaigning is led by a genuine desire to see positive change and help to restore a society and state that is there to serve the many, not just the few.

“I am incredibly proud to be publishing this vital book and thrilled to welcome Carol to Headline.”

Out Of Order will be published in hardback, ebook and audiobook on Sept 12.
