She also took to Twitter to laugh about her declaration, tweeting: ‘Oh.. I make myself laugh sometimes…. Headline in today’s @TheTelegraph….”the thought of living with someone again makes me feel positively sick”…
‘My way of saying I’m VERY happy as a badly behaved singleton.’
Carol was married to Christopher Mather from 1985 to 1986 and then to Patrick King from 1990 until 2000, with the couple sharing children Katie, 28, and Cameron, 23.
Since splitting from Des, 14 years ago, Carol has been single and thrown herself into work projects such as launching her own line of education books.

She said: ‘I’ve had nearly four decades of working six or seven days a week and now I just want to do the bits I want to do. I have a ridiculously happy and absurd life.’
Carol also reflected on her many achievements, which include being a pilot, an author of education books and sitting on an American education board alongside astronauts, as she marked her 60th birthday.
She is also set to return to TV on Tuesday January 5 with her new show Carol Vorderman: Closer To Home which will see the presenter return to North Wales.
Carol grew up in the area and will look into how much things have changed and also meet up with her step-siblings to chat about their dad.

Carol was raised by stepfather after her mother and biological dad, then 40, split when she was just three weeks old following his affair with a 16-year-old.
However despite all her success, Carol expressed her frustration that much of the attention she receives can be for her appearance.
She told the publication: ‘When I was 39, I was on the box five nights a week earning millions of pounds a year.. then I went to the Baftas in a short blue dress, papers went mental for months.’
It comes after Carol played her own assets for laughs as she prepared for her usual slot on BBC Radio Wales.

She saw the funny side after noticing a studio webcam was trained on her prominent chest as she prepared to share social media content ahead of her show on Monday morning.
Taking to Instagram, Carol – who celebrated her 60th birthday on Christmas Eve – posted a snap of the webcam screen filled with an image of her curvaceous upper body as she sat in her booth.
Captioning the shot, she quipped: ‘Um… move the bl**dy webcam!’
In an second image, the presenter revealed the camera angle had been partially adjusted so only her face was visible.
Playfully acknowledging the adjustment, she joked: ‘Ah… there she is!!! BBC Radio Wales webcam sorted.’
