Radio host Julia Hartley-Brewer, 50, uploaded a picture of herself having hiked ip Scafell Pike in the Lake District in view of her 158,000 Twitter followers yesterday. “I’m the highest woman in England in this pic. 2 hours 20 mins to the summit of Scafell Pike - including jelly baby stops,” she said. “To put that time in perspective, a team of Gurkhas went up Scafell Pike last week and reached the summit in 40 minutes flat. They basically ran up. I’m knackered even thinking about it.” Ex-Countdown presenter Carol Vorderman, 58, was soon tagged into the conversation by a fan, who remarked on her love of hiking, saying: “Hook up with @carolvorders she’s hiking mad at the mo…”
He’s blocked for being an idiot
However, another social media user had something less constructive to share, replying to both Julia and Carol: “FFS what is with hiking and Tory women?”(sic)
The first Twitter user then hit back with a succinct: “K**b.”
The comeback appeared to entertain Carol, who chimed in: “Lol.”
She proceeded to share the remark about “Tory women” with her own 399,000 followers, writing: “Hilarious… apparently hiking is now a political activity… laughing so loudly.
“He’s blocked OBVS… for being an idiot,”(sic) she continued.
“BTW I’m not with any political party, but I am the Official Ambassador for the ALL PARTY Parliamentary Group for General Aviation… hooray.”
