Claudia Winkleman loves filming 'The Great British Sewing Bee'.

The 42-year-old TV presenter has recently finished filming the second series of the BBC Two competition and admits the cast and crew all have so much fun making the programme that it doesn't matter if it doesn't get good ratings.

She said: "The camaraderie on any film crew is key. I shouldn't say this but it doesn't matter what goes out. I hope it's fine and I hope to continue to have a job but if I don't, I don't."

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' presenter hosts the programme, which sees 10 amateur stitchers battle against each other in challenges judged by Savile Row tailor Patrick Grant and sewing teacher Mary Martin.

She added: "The key with all these things is that the crew, the hair and make-up, and the sewers all cry with laughter all day."

Despite admitting that she loves her sleep and finds it difficult to get out of bed and go to work in the mornings, Claudia says that she loves being a part of 'Strictly Come Dancing' and gets consumed by the drama of it.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When I'm doing Strictly, there's nothing else. I'm the colour of George Hamilton and I'm obsessed by fleckerls, the signature move in the Viennese waltz, but then a week after Strictly's done, I can't tell you who's won."

'The Great British Sewing Bee' returns to BBC Two tonight (18.02.14)
