CAROL Vorderman ‘couldn’t be more proud’ as she posed with her rarely-seen son Cameron following his master’s degree graduation.
The Countdown singer shared a video of her youngest son, who has surmounted obstacles to thrive in further schooling despite his special needs, on her Instagram Story.
Carol was overjoyed when she learned Cameron had earned a Masters degree from the University of Dundee.
Cameron, 24, stood with his famous mother in his graduation robes and looked spiffy.
Carol flaunted her curves in a stylish long-sleeved black dress with a flattering pencil skirt.
“Such a lovely day @dundeeuni,” the TV host, who also has a 30-year-old daughter Katie, posted on Instagram.
“So Cameron spent most of his early years in a special school with serious learning disabilities, but he’s worked hard and acquired skills, and boy has he turned it all around.”
“I couldn’t be more pleased with him.”
“We never dreamed this day would come when he graduated with first class honours last year and now a Masters degree in Animation and VFX,” she continued.
“Thank you, Dundee, for everything you’ve done for him over the last year. Amazing” Carol recently shared a photo of herself and her son as they prepared for his big day.
“My Cameron and I on our way to Dundee for his Masters Graduation tomorrow (hashtag)specialneeds (hashtag)learningdifficulties,” the math genius commented over the photo.
In a September interview, she exposed the full extent of his learning problems.
When he was “rejected” by his school after being labeled “disruptive” and “unteachable,” the 60-year-old remembers feeling “lost and heartbroken.”
Cameron earned a master’s degree despite all of this, and his mother Carol is overjoyed.
But, having been abandoned by the standard education system early on, she said it was a challenge to get to where they are now.
Carol, who had split from his father Paddy King at the time, said openly about how difficult it was as a family: “By six, this boy I loved so much, that I would have done everything for, was being rejected – by the school, by the teachers, by the other pupils.” It was gut-wrenching, utterly gut-wrenching.
