“After my second baby, I couldn’t lose a pound,” says Claudia Winkleman

Strictly Come Dancing presenter reveals her baby weight battle – and dislike of exercise!

Claudia Winkleman, 37, has revealed she struggled to lose her baby weight after her second baby, in an interview in Stylist. The TV presenter, who is mum to Jake, 6 and Matilda, 3, said she had to work hard after Matilda was born to regain her figure – and hated every second of it! “I’ve always thought exercise is bad for people and it just doesn’t suit me,” she jokes. “After I had the second baby, I couldn’t lose a pound so I joined a gym. I went for six weeks and it really did the job, but I’ve never been back!”


Claudia also revealed the secret to balancing her high-profile career with family life. “Strictly takes over my life from September until Christmas, so I don’t do any work through the summer. My agent knows it has to be something extraordinary, as I’d rather be with my kids.”
