Caroline Flack has confessed Claudia Winkleman is her "role model" because she wants to emulate her presenting career
Caroline Flack's "role model" is Claudia Winkleman.
The former 'Xtra Factor' star is currently competing on 'Strictly Come Dancing' and admires the way the host - who co-presents with Tess Daly - interacts with the audience and makes presenting look effortless.
She said: "Claudia is a role model. I watch her live and the way she makes the audience feel so up is amazing. She's 'on' the whole time - even when she walks off-screen.
"She has amazing self-deprecating humour and is smart and quick. And I look at her and think, 'You are so good.' That's the kind of stuff I look to do.
"I mean, Tess is good as well but they're so different."
The 34-year-old presenter insists she isn't feeling "pressure" over her age compared with younger presenters and only cares about "nailing" her work rather than looking good.
She told Look magazine: "I'm not feeling the pressure yet. Anyway, it's only pressure if you let it get to you. I'd much rather nail my job than look great but not nail my job."
