“I was a bit worried people might think they are in some horrific reality TV show when they walk into a funeral and see me there”
The former host of 1990s hit shows Changing Rooms and Wheel Of Fortune has been leading humanist ceremonies for the past two months.
The mum of three uses her married name Carol Knight and hopes by the end of the year she will also be able to celebrate humanist weddings, too.
Carol 56, revealed: “I was a bit worried people might think they are in some horrific reality TV show when they walk into a funeral and see me there.
“But in a way my profile has helped because people feel they know me a little bit already.”
In 2012 Carol went into business to launch a new brand of leak-proof underwear for women.
But after licensing the brand to home shopping network High Street TV, she found herself looking for a new project.
She said: “It’s an obvious fit for the skills I already have. You need to be confident speaking in public, good with people and sensitive.
You learn how to write and structure a ceremony, and how to deal with people.”
