Claudia Winkleman: 'I've tried Botox'
Claudia Winkleman has tried Botox.
The 44-year-old 'Strictly Come Dancing' presenter admitted she hates watching herself on screen so much that she tried the cosmetic injections but was not happy with the results.
She told The Sun: "I had a go at Botox and I looked weird. I'm not even going to show you what's under my fringe because then you'll be physically sick on me.
"I try and be honest about it. I tried it, didn't like it. I looked alarmed, and if there's anything that I am it's not alarmed."
"I actually can't watch myself on TV without being physically sick.
"Damn, I'm 44, it's falling apart. I have a huge fringe and I wear enough eyeliner to kill a clown. I mean, a lot of people find it repellent, but I'm too old to start changing."
And while Claudia wasn't a fan of Botox, she hasn't ruled out trying it again in the future.
She said: "The train has left the station, it's too late. Bring it. I quite like the idea of looking withered and weird with an overly long fringe and too much eyeliner on.
"But I'm not going to say never again. I might wake up in two years' time, find a small hand-mirror, scream the house down and run.
"I don't like being airbrushed. I love doing no make-up. I'm on the Tube all the time looking disgusting."
Meanwhile, two years ago Claudia's 10-year-old daughter Matilda was injured when her Halloween costume went up in flames but Claudia says the youngster is doing great.
She said: "She's made incredible progress and I am grateful to the doctors and nurses who saved her every single day.
"I've got a lot to be happy about, I feel incredibly lucky. I can't believe I have this job, an amazing family.
"You have to touch wood all the time and think, 'Please let everything be all right'. And people go through much worse."
