Tess Daly has a crush on Claudia Winkleman.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host, who appears alongside the TV presenter during the results show, has gushed about the brunette beauty and admits she is so infatuated with her she sometimes has to stop herself starring at the stunner.
She said: "I'm her number one fan. I have to stop myself from gazing adoringly at her.
"I think I'm a little bit in love with her. She's the funniest woman on TV."
The 44-year-old blonde has daughters Phoebe, nine, and Amber, four, with husband Vernon Kay and she thinks he should appear on the BBC One show.
She added to Bella magazine: "I've told him that he should get involved in the Christmas special, because it would just be a one-off.
"Vernon's actually not that bad on the dance floor. He's a very enthusiastic dancer and I think he'd be able to pull it off.
"Phoebe wanted a 'Strictly'-themed birthday party this year! She said, 'Mum, you can be you and Dad can be [Sir] Bruce [Forsyth].'
"Vernon does a pretty good Bruce impression, actually. He did it for Bruce once and luckily Bruce laughed!"
