Claudia Winkleman to waltz back on Strictly

By Robert Dex

Strictly Come Dancing presenter Claudia Winkleman asked the audience to "bear with me" as she prepares to return to the hit ballroom show this weekend.

She has been absent in recent weeks to be with her eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, who was in hospital after her Halloween costume went up in flames while she was out trick or treating.

Writing on Twitter, she said: "Firstly, a huge thank you to the incredible NHS doctors and nurses who are being extraordinary.

"We are bowled over by their kindness and brilliance. Matilda is doing well and although it will be a long road to recovery, she is getting the best possible care.

"I'm coming back to Strictly this weekend but am out of practice so please bear with me."
