Presenter doesn't like to look at herself

Claudia Winkleman admits she’s not very realistic about her looks.

The Strictly Come Dancing presenter doesn’t check her appearance before she goes out as she prefers to leave it to her imagination.

I don’t have any mirrors in my house, because I don’t believe in what we look like,’ says Claudia, 42.

And I’ve got really bad eyesight.

In my head, I look a bit like a supermodel and I’m surprised more people don’t crash when they see me.

I’m like, “Dudes, I look amazing”. I’ve got no concept of how I look or how I am.’

Claudia also tries to avoid seeing herself on television as it makes her feel sick.

I never watch myself, that’s why I haven’t improved,’ the mum-of-three quips to the Mirror.

I’m still the same. I’d vomit.

It’s the same thing as listening to a voice message you’ve left but worse, because you see your face.’

Claudia currently hosts The Great British Sewing Bee, which airs on Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC Two and concludes on 8 April.
