'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host Claudia Winkleman has admitted she knew her husband was The One as soon she met him
Claudia Winkleman knew immediately her husband was Mr Right.
The 48-year-old presenter met Kris Thykier, 48, when they were both 26 and says she was attracted to him straight away.
She said: "Basically, I met him young, I was only 26. He was funny and kind. He was just The One. I don't think you have big conversations with yourself where you say 'I know'.
"You just go with it and then all of sudden you're pregnant. And that's all I'm saying."
And Claudia is very clear on what type of men she is not attracted to.
She added to OK! magazine: "Being too good looking is a no. I think very good looking men make very little effort. You can choose someone who is pleasant to look at but they can't think they are the hottest person in the room.
"And men who are into grooming, that's heinous. You don't want a man who says, 'Sorry love, I need the mirror because I need to put on my eye cream before bed.' "
Earlier this year, Claudia admitted she refuses to kiss or get intimate with her husband if he has had a glass of water – because she doesn’t like the feeling.
She said: “I don’t like or believe in water, I won’t have it ... I’ve never knowingly had water, I don’t like it.
"When people drink it, like my husband drinks great amounts of water, and I really like him but it’s problematic. He’s glugging, don’t touch me, ‘take your bra off’... I don’t think so.”
Claudia explained how she hates the idea of kissing someone after they’ve glugged a glass of water as it makes their mouth too moist.
She added: “Imagine you’re on a date – I’ve been with the same man for 100 years – and he’s sitting there and he’s like, ‘I don’t know what to have, what are you going to have? Maybe we should have the same thing.’ And someone comes round and says, ‘Would you like some water?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, sure.’
"And they give him a pint glass of water and he drinks the whole thing. Are you going to want to kiss this man or more? No! A wet mouth with a big fleshy tongue that is covered in liquid.”
