Claudia Winkleman – who is 45 years old – either has Strictly Come Dancing fans obsessing over her fringe or infuriates BBC One viewers with her hair permanently in front of her face.
Regardless of your take on it, Claudia – whose famous family, including her mum and daughter were uncovered recently – is famous for her thick fringe.
In fact, the Strictly Come Dancing presenter is never seen without the signature style, which she usually matches with heavy eyeliner and a nude lip.
But now the 45 year old has revealed the surprising and refreshing reason she maintains her bangs throughout the years.
Speaking to OK! magazine, the mum of three opened up about cosmetic surgery, when asked if she’d ever had Botox, Claudia admitted she had and said: “I looked disgusting and strangely alarmed. Also, it’s a complete waste of time for me because I have the fringe.”
“I prefer to stick to my old lady goth/Steve Tyler look. I’m 45. I’m done. I’ve found my look – white lipstick, black eyeliner, black clothes.”
The Strictly Come Dancing judges reportedly earn upwards of £110k per series – former head judge Len Goodman was thought to earn nearer £120k when he was on the show
Claudia also admitted she would never part with her fringe, she explained: “I can’t really imagine life without it. And I don’t know what’s under there – it could be squirrels, it could be beavers.”
The television personality also opened up about reaching her mid forties.
When asked how she felt about her age, she told OK! magazine exclusively: “Awesome. I feel more fantastic as I get older. I think I was born aged about 86.
“All I’ve ever wanted to do is stay at home under a heavy tog duvet and now that I’m old I can do that. My twenties were just painful. You had to go out to nightclubs. I love not having to pretend to enjoy those things anymore. I’ll celebrate my birthday at home with family – lots of us, and lots of eating.
“And a cheese board. Definitely a cheese board. Cheese, pizza, mountains of pasta, chocolate and then sleep.”
