Claudia Winkleman tipped to host new primetime Channel 4 chatshow

Claudia Winkleman on Film 2010

Film 2011 star Claudia Winkleman has been tipped to host a new primetime Channel 4 chatshow which will compete with Graham Norton on BBC One. According to The Sun, Claudia will host a new format called "King Of... With Claudia Winkleman" in which celeb guests pick their favourite things.

In a reversal of the idea behind the BBC's long-running Room 101 TV series, in which famous faces list their three biggest hates before jettisoning them down into 'Room 101', King Of... will ask celebs to name their all time favourite things.

Claudia Winkleman has been tipped to front the new show, however it appears that Channel 4 could have a fight on its hands with BBC one over the brunette star. "Claudia's really hot right now and Channel 4 and BBC1 are fighting over her," a source told The Sun.

"They're both very keen to find her a show and there's a bit of a tug-of-love going on."

Claudia currently hosts BBC1's Film 2011 and also its Strictly Come Dancing spin off It Takes Two on BBC2.
