Carol Vorderman is among the growing army of well-wishers for a young RAF Cadet who was thought to have been mocked for wearing her cadet uniform.

Taeghan Gordon wore her RAF Cadet uniform to school on November 11 as part of Remembrance commemorations. 

TV personality Carol, the Air Cadet Ambassador and Hononary Group Captain, is one of many to send messages praise and encouragement to Taeghan. Carol, who is best known for her role on TV game show Countdown, said:

"I'm reporting in to salute you, for wearing your uniform, and for going through what you did, but still holding your head up high." 

The message was played to Taeghan as she and her mum joined British Forces Broadcasting Service's Big Show live with presenters Jay James and Amy Casey.

In case you missed it you can watch it here:

Taeghan's mum, Ally, posted on Twitter and the forces community were quick to show their love and support. 

Here are just a few of the other hundreds messages Taeghan has received:

National Honorary Colonel of the Army Cadet Force, Lorraine Kelly shared her support:
