Character Bio

Claudia Winkleman - "I'm properly excited about working alongside Tess on the results show".

Claudia Winkleman has presented a range of BBC TV shows, including: Let’s Dance for Sport Relief, The Eurovision Song Contest and Comic Relief. She also presented Film 2011, and The Radio 2 Arts Show.

Claudia grew up in London and is the half-sister of actress 'Sophie Winkleman'. She attended Cambridge University and graduated with an MA Honours in History of Art.

She hosted It Takes Two since it started back in 2004; during that time she interviewed a host of celebrity Strictly fans and personalities, including: 'Barbara Windsor', 'Rod Stewart' and 'Miranda Hart'.

It is through her work on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two that Claudia has gained the most public recognition. The programme, which started in 2004, was devised as a companion show to run conjoined with the second series of Strictly Come Dancing, and continues to run to date. It follows a similar format to the one Claudia made popular on Fame Academy, and sees the presenter deliberating and dissecting the ins and outs of the main competition, accompanied by an array of dance experts, assorted guests and the competitors themselves. The show is aired every weekday throughout the course of the series at 6:30pm on BBC Two. The show's four judges also appear regularly on the programme.

One of the show's features was "Len's Masterclass", a segment in which Head Judge 'Len Goodman' demonstrated with Winkleman a dance move or two. Her attempts to follow the steps are accompanied by much girlish giggling. The 2011 series of the programme was presented by former Strictly Come Dancing contestant 'Zoë Ball', as Winkleman was on maternity leave, and some different segments were introduced.

In 2012, it was announced that 'Zoë Ball' would be the regular presenter of Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two, with Winkleman's involvement in Series 10 of the show being limited to co-hosting the Sunday night results show with 'Tess Daly'. Claudia continues to host the Sunday night results show for Strictly Come Dancing.

On May 8, 2014 it was announced that Ms Winkleman had been chosen to take over from 'Sir Bruce Forsyth' and would be co-presenter with 'Tess Daly' of the main Strictly show, forming the first all-female presenting duo on UK prime-time television.
