Strictly's Claudia Winkleman can't stand to watch herself on TV

Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman has revealed she doesn't actually watch the show.

In fact, Claudia doesn't watch any of her appearances on TV saying she can't stand to see herself.

"I actually can’t watch myself on TV without being physically sick," Claudia revealed openly.

She explained: "Damn, I’m 44, it’s falling apart. I have a huge fringe and I wear enough eyeliner to kill a clown. I mean, a lot of people find it repellent, but I’m too old to start changing.”

Chatting to The Sun newspaper candidly, Claudia went on to say she "had a go at Botox" but it left her looking "weird".

She told the newspaper: "I’m not even going to show you what’s under my fringe because then you’ll be physically sick on me.

“I try and be honest about it. I tried it, didn’t like it. I looked alarmed, and if there’s anything that I am it’s not alarmed.”

Away from her fringe and eyeliner, Claudia suggested that Strictly pros Anton Du Beke and Brendan Cole could team up to replace Len Goodman when he steps down as judge at the end of this year's series.

She said: “They so know what they’re talking about. Maybe they could do it together.

“I’m not sure one person could take over from Len. But the bosses are very clever in what they’re doing, other than hiring me obviously.”

Strictly returns tonight on BBC One at 6:30PM.
