Strictly's Claudia 'will not be seen in glam outfits and heels'

New Strictly Come Dancing co-host Claudia Winkleman says she prefers to be "hidden, physically".

The presenter, who will join Tess Daly on the prime time Saturday night dancing show, described her trademark fringe as her "poncho".

Speaking to a newspaper, Winkleman said she will never be seen in a bright figure-hugging outfit.

"Let's just say you're never going to find me in an Herve Leger sky-blue bandage dress, a high pony and heels.

Slouched

"You might find me slouched in the corner in a poncho. That's what my fringe is: a poncho," she said.

On working in TV Winkleman said she is a "mass of contradictions".

The presenter was full of praise for Daly, describing her as "adorable. We get on brilliantly and look after each other. She's got the best body you've ever seen in your life."

The new series will be the first without veteran host Bruce Forsyth (86). It returns to BBC1 for its 12th series next Sunday at 8pm.
