Claudia Winkleman has admitted she gets her style inspiration from Steven Tyler and claimed she's never had any interest in being a sex symbol

Claudia Winkleman gets her style inspiration from Steven Tyler.

The 42-year-old presenter has confessed her heavy eyeliner and messy-haired look are a result of copying the Aerosmith rocker's style.

She said: "I have a photograph of him from about 20 years ago and he's just wearing a black shirt, a bit of kohl, skinny jeans, hair all in his face. I thought, 'That's me! That's what I want to look like!'"

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' co-host - who is married to film producer Kris Thykier - insists she likes the androgynous look and has no interest in attracting the opposite sex.

She added: "I don't even want to be a female version of Steven Tyler - just Steven Tyler ... I've never wanted to be sexy - even when I was 18. It's not my shizzle. I want to be funny. A genius. A biochemist. But not sexy."

Claudia was forced to take a break from hosting Strictly alongside Tess Daly earlier this year after her eight-year-old daughter Matilda was injured when her Halloween costume caught on fire.

And the brunette beauty - who also has sons Arthur, three, and Jake, 11, with Kris - admitted to Red magazine that having children had been "a slight obsession" of hers "from early on".
