Claudia Winkleman admits she is "too orange" but defends her style.

The 'Great British Sewing Bee' host know she can sometimes look too "tanned", but insisted she "couldn't care less" about what people think about her image.

She told The Sun newspaper's TV Magazine: "At home, I never wear make-up, then at work I get myself tanned up so I look like I've been grilling myself in the sun for three weeks.

"I go for a fight-with-an-eyeliner look and an enormous fringe I can hide behind. I have actually just cut my fringe as my producer told me off saying it looked ridiculous.

"I know I'm too orange, but I couldn't care less. It's my look and I'm happy with it. The fan mail I get is generally from young boys who write in green ink. Whatever they say, I take as a compliment."

Claudia also claimed she doesn't enjoy watching herself on TV, insisting she has a "very shrill voice" which makes her self-conscious.

She said: "I never watch myself on television. I'd rather eat dung. I can't do it, because I find myself incredibly annoying. My voice is very shrill. I'm phobic about it."
