Claudia Winkleman – after this weeks news that Zoe Ball is taking over from Claudia on Strictly spin-off “It Takes Two”, comes news that Claudia has given birth to a baby boy. The new arrival, Claudia’s third child, was apparently born yesterday evening and does not yet have a name.
Claudia is already a big favourite on Film 2011, the BBC’s flagship movie review programme.
She has won a lot of fans for her very quirky personality and cute looks. She has a very different look from her mother the journalist and former editor Eve Pollard who was known for her classic dress style and large bust. Claudia on the other hand has a much more 1960’s European look about her and favours quite heavy make up.
As you can see from this photo though she is also quite proud of her bust.
Claudia’s fans seem keen to discuss their dreams about her and there is even a Facebook page devoted to people’s Winklewinks!
See Wikio’s news site for the latest on Claudia.
