Claudia Winkleman asks Strictly viewers to ‘bear with me’ as she returns to host the show!


    Claudia Winkleman will be returning to Strictly Come Dancing this weekend.


    Claudia has been absent from Strictly for a few weeks now as her eight-year-old daughter, Matilda, was seriously rushed to hospital after her Halloween costume went up in flames while she was trick-or-treating on Halloween this year.

    However, after her recent time off, the host of the BBC hit show will be back this weekend to present the show alongside Tess Daly tomorrow night (November 22), the BBC has confirmed.

    Winkleman sent a few tweets on Twitter about the situation: “Hello Twitter. 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.

    “Thank you so much for your lovely messages – they meant everything. I’m coming back to Strictly this weekend but am out of practice, so please bear with me.”

    Strictly Come Dancing 2014 returns tomorrow night (22nd November) from 7PM on BBC One.
