Claudia Winkleman might be one of the most-loved presenters on our telly screens, but it turns out theres one person who doesnt like seeing her on Strictly Come Dancing every week – and thats her son.
Claudia shares Jake, 15, Matilda, 12, and seven-year-old Arthur with her husband Kris Thykier, but as her kids enter their teenage years it looks like theyre not exactly impressed with their mums celeb status.
“My eldest son has got a buzzcut,” she said in an interview with The Sun earlier this year. “Hes 15 and he thinks his mums a loser. Its heartbreaking.”
She continued, “The main thing he wants me to do is just not do Strictly. Mum, if you really love me, youd stop.”
The 46-year-old then admitted like all kids, Jake is embarrassed by his famous mum, as she added, “Hes just embarrassed. But thats the whole point.
“My job is to embarrass him, so I just follow him around trying to lick his ear. Hes the cutest thing ever.”
Meanwhile, Claudia opened up about her mid-life crisis earlier this week as she revealed shes had an invisible brace fitted.
Appearing on The Emma Guns Show, the Strictly host admitted, “Theyre part of the mid-life crisis, Ive got Invisalign in. My teeth suddenly went crooked, one morning they all decided to fold in front of each other, you couldnt do anything with them so I got this, Im slightly in love with it. Theyre so clever.”
She also went on to open up about ageing, as she confessed to taking two naps a day!
“Im not that busy, and I do like napping,” she explained.
“Ive had to stop having two naps a day as I was no longer sleeping at night, thats what happened when I turned 46. I love a nap.”
The star then added: “Yesterday I thought, I dont even need a nap, but Im going to have one. Ive had a good nights sleep. It was not necessary. I didnt have to leave the house until 2.45pm to pick up the kids, Ive eaten, its 1.15pm, lets just see what happens, an hour and a half later – snore.”
