Although former Countdown star Carol is 30 years older than her daughter, she does look very youthful and her beautiful daughter is very much her mini-me with a matching smile and eyes.

The photo was posted to promote her project, The Maths Factor, which is an online maths school, and she captioned the picture: "Newly out today…..Year 7 Maths on my maths school @themathsfactor.

"The teachers are me AND my daughter Katie @KKing_5 (now a research scientist…..and a great teacher herself) #LikeMotherLikeDaughter."

The star is very close with Katie, who is as brainy as her mother, as well as being as beautiful.

Katie has a PHD in Nanotechnology from Cambridge University, as well as having worked with NASA.

On her graduation day Carol shared a snap of her daughter, captioning it: "I'm so proud. We're one of the very few mother and daughter duos who've done science and engineering at Cambridge”.

But aside from Katie, who else is in Carol’s family?

Well the star also has a son from her marriage to ex-husband management consultant Patrick King, which lasted from 1990 to 2000.

Carol's son Cameron is also very smart, despite struggling at school. This year he enrolled to do a masters degree in Dundee, Scotland in animation and video effect.

Speaking on Twitter, Carol wrote: “My son Cameron was born with the severest dyslexia & ADD, by the age of 6 many schools had refused to accept him.

“He went to a “special school” for 4 yrs. Then to mainstream where he was bullied (common for kids like him) At age 16 he changed to a school which was kinder.

“Cam has only ever wanted to be a video games designer. He’s profoundly bright, hard working and a good person. In spite of his slower start in life, this week he got this…. FIRST CLASS B.A. Honours Degree in Animation

“Cam’s off to do his Masters Degree in Animation & Video FX at Dundee Uni.”
