Byline: GEORGE TYNDALE

WOMEN'S magazines, Mrs Tyndale informs me, are frequently padded out with salacious features about 'What Women Want'.

The lists of the sort of things bored housewives want from their beefcake are typically: money, muscles and an un-flagging sex drive.

And why not? Rarely, though, are there features about 'What Men Want'. This, you see, would be deemed sexist.

Let us, however, risk the PC brickbats and state one of the things men want, or rather do not want.

Near the top of the list of 'don'ts' would be women dressed inappropriately for their age.

Enter Carol Vorderman. The ex-Countdown wordsearch shuffler was recently named Rear of the Year.

Last week she was snapped boarding a train in an obscenely tight, low-cut grey dress.

Ms Vorderman is 50. This is wrong. Noone is impressed, least of all men.
