Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman, 48, has shared a rare insight into her marriage with husband Kris Thykier. The host and the film producer have been married for 20 years this year.

However, Claudia has insisted she “usually forgets” their anniversaries and that Kris tends to be “more romantic” than her.

The star, who shares three children with her other half, explained when quizzed on how the couple marked the special occasion: “I’m not very romantic, so I usually forget.

“He’s more romantic than me, but if we were both romantic, it would be disgusting, we’d just be licking each other’s chins all the time.”

Claudia went on to divulge the secret to a lasting marriage after her anniversary.

She said: “Somebody kind, somebody who laughs at themselves.

“When you’re younger, kind? Ugh, what a loser! I’d always fancy the bloke who didn’t text me back for two weeks.”

Claudia added to You Magazine: “But Kris is kind. 

“I don’t need a trip to Paris, I don’t need anything fancy. 


“I need, ‘I’ve run you a hot bath’, or, ‘I know you love this boxset, so let’s watch it’.”

The mum-of-three also revealed she shared her hopes to have children with Kris on their second date.

Claudia admitted: “I was just waiting to have a baby. 

“I think it was on our second date, I told him I was ovulating, which was probably quite terrifying for him.”

Elsewhere, Claudia shared a surprising story about when she shared a bed with fellow presenter Gabby Logan.

Gabby explained that one particular element of the Strictly host’s beauty regimen left her in shock and unable to sleep for a while.

The duo got onto the subject when they discussed former The Great British Bake Off presenter Mary Berry’s reported decision to leave her eye make-up on overnight “because she prefers it the next day”.

Claudia then chimed on Gabby’s podcast The Mid Point: “I’ve never taken my make-up off!”

Gabby responded by quipping: “Not since ’86, I can vouch for that because we shared a bed last year.”

The star then said she was concerned that Claudia didn’t remove her eye make-up before falling asleep.

She explained: “It wasn’t the fact that you didn’t have a 16 step skincare programme, it was the fact that you didn’t take your eye make-up off that kept me awake for a while.”

“I fell fast asleep,” Claudia recalled.

“I was going to secretly take it off for you and then in the morning see what happened,” Gabby divulged.
