'Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two' host Claudia Winkleman admits she is too busy too sleep at the moment, because of her hectic workload

Claudia Winkleman is too busy to sleep.

The 38-year-old star - who was recently announced as the new presenter of `Film 2010' - has a huge workload because she is keeping her role as host of `Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two' but doesn't want give it up in case her latest job doesn't work out.

She said: "I'm doing `Strictly' as well and the Radio 2 Arts Show.

"I don't know when I'm going to sleep. I can't let `Strictly' go because if I'm going to mess up 'Film 2010', I'm going to have to have something else to do."

Despite her nerves, Claudia recently admitted replacing Jonathan Ross on the movie review show was a dream come true.

She told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "Presenting 'Film 2010' is my all-time favourite dream job.

"My dad, Barry, wept. I feel I should mention him because he knows that I've always, always watched it."

Claudia will be joined by film journalist Danny Leigh on the show.

The duo will co-present the new-look BBC1 series, which is to undergo a format change to become a live chat show with weekly guest actors and film directors joining them on the sofa.
