Claudia not privy to Strictly news

Claudia Winkleman has insisted that producers never let her in on the Strictly Come Dancing line-up - because she once let the secret slip.

The presenter, who co-hosts the Sunday night results show with Tess Daly, said that "she was always the last to know" which celebs would be foxtrotting on the hit BBC One show.

Asked about reports that Jessica Ennis could join the show, the former It Takes Two presenter said: "I don't know.

"Once they told me and said 'it's a real secret' and unfortunately I told someone. I can't remember which celebrity it was."

Claudia, speaking at a recent awards ceremony, said it was "great" that Bruce Forsyth had announced he would be doing another series of the show, adding: "Strictly is like Christmas."
