Claudia Winkleman makes surprise ‘naked’ admission about Strictly 2019 co-host Tess Daly

Claudia Winkleman, 47, was asked what she likes most about Tess Daly’s looks – and the presenter certainly didn’t hold back. Gushing about her Strictly Come Dancing co-host Tess, 50, being “so beautiful” in an interview with the Daily Mirror, she went on to say that she had the most “extraordinary body”. 


And when asked what she would she do if she could do a “body swap” with Tess, Claudia made a rather rude admission. 

She said she would: “Walk around naked. It would be phenomenal.”

As to where the telly personality would go, she said she’d go “anywhere” in Tess’ birthday suit.

She explained: “I’d go anywhere, I’d do my Destination Walking naked. Only wearing a pair of trainers.”

In the same interview, Claudia admitted that she had shoplifted from Boots as a teen, and the extreme “guilt” she felt in the aftermath.

Ironically she is now launching her own make-up line with Boots, despite her dodgy past with the beauty goods and pharmacy chain.

Called “Full Panda,” Claudia joked that it is a play on her infamous reputation for having rather wonky make-up.

She even said the range looks at its best when it goes a bit wrong.

She explained: “Here’s the beauty of it – it’s only good news when ‘full panda’ goes wrong. It looks better.

“If you’re applying eyeliner on the bus and it jerks, then good.”

As for Claudia and Tess’ close bond, their friendship goes way back. 

The veteran presenters have been presenting Strictly Come Dancing together since 2014 and are beloved by many viewers for their natural pizazz.

In an interview with last month, Tess revealed the secret behind their onscreen chemistry. 

Tess said: “Claudia’s my mate, I’ve known her for years and years.

“We’ve grown up together on TV, it feels like that.”

She continued: “We filmed together on the Sunday results show before we started doing the main show together, so we already had that experience of standing side-by-side on the Strictly floor.

“It felt like a natural progression for us to do that.

“It always felt natural and right and, when you genuinely get on with someone, it is a joy to stand next to them on the floor because it doesn’t feel like work, it feels like an extension of your friendship. It’s comfortable.”

In other Strictly Come Dancing news, Will Bayley won’t be performing tonight after pulling out of the competition in the week due to an injury.
