Strictly's Claudia Winkleman says "I see Meat Loaf when I look in the mirror"


Claudia Winkleman, we don’t know who you are but you ­reckon you’re a real dead ringer for Meat Loaf.

The Strictly Come Dancing host jokes that when she sees herself in a full-length mirror the hulking American Bat Out Of Hell singer stares back at her.

Petite 5ft 5in Claudia, 48, explained: “We don’t have a full-length mirror. But if I stay at places I will often look up and go, ‘Why is Meat Loaf here!’

“I’ve interviewed him once but I don’t know him. Why is he in my room ­moving like I am?”

Meat, born Marvin Lee Aday, once tipped the scales at 19st although the 73-year-old is now 14st, which he credits to being a vegetarian.

Claudia, the face of Head and Shoulders shampoo who earns about £370,000 a year at the BBC, said she did not care about cultivating a glamorous image as she approaches her 50s.

She said: “I don’t want to get old gracefully. I don’t want a twin set. I never want to look polite.

“I want to look like I’ve slept in a skip. That is the whole point of me.

“I just worked out what I want to look like – like I’ve slept in gravy.’

Claudia, speaking on a podcast, ­added: “I feel sort of 72. Even though my face is falling off, my stomach is a disgrace, my knees are now wholly made of crepe, I love getting older.

“I can’t wait for 50. I loved 40. My 40s have been excellent. And I think 50s will be even better. And 60s, better than that.”

Perhaps she should just keep away from full-length mirrors.
