Claudia Winkleman has revealed the very surprising theme behind her Strictly Come Dancing outfits.
The dancing show host, known for her trademark fringe and heavy black eyeliner, chooses a different theme for her style every year.
In the past she has dressed as rock and roll legend Elvis Presley and even as the country of France.
For the first weekend of the 2023 Strictly season, Claudia rocked a sleek black suit with white trimmings,
One fan commented: ‘Looking fabulous. Do you have a theme this year Claudia?’

Inspiration: After the first episode, one fan said Claudia resembled snooker player Steve Davis (right, in 1987)
It turns out that Claudia has themed her entire wardrobe around snooker after one viewer commented that she was dressed like sport player Steve Davis.
Since, Claudia’s stylist Sinead McKeefry has chosen snooker-themed choices, with the 51-year-old donning a series of monochrome numbers.
A source told The Mirror: ‘Claudia thought the quip was very funny and there are so many bright colours on a snooker table – including the green felt – that it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have some fun.’
Last year Claudia styled her looks based on Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic – and even had a cardboard cutout of the pop icon in her dressing room.
The year before she dressed ‘only as France’.
Last year she said: ‘We always base my outfits on a theme. It could be a person, it could be a place.
‘One year, I was Andre Agassi and I have done Pam St Clement [Pat Butcher], Slash from Guns N’ Roses, Joan Rivers, Sharon Osbourne, Anita Dobson, Elton John and Mr Darcy from Pride and Prejudice.

‘My favourite, though, was when we dressed the whole series as the arty London restaurant Sexy Fish.’
The TV presenter shares Jake, 19, Matilda, 15, and Arthur, 10, with TV producer husband Kris Thykier, who she married in 2000.
Claudia also hosts mystery series The Traitors and music show The Piano.
Claudia moved from Strictly spin-off It Takes Two to present the main programme with Tess Daly in 2014.
While she has found success as the host of three of the biggest shows on TV, Claudia remains humble and insisted it’s all down to good luck.
She said: ‘The Traitors and Strictly and The Piano are so strong anybody could host them. We all know it. But I’m lucky enough that I’m there. That’s the truth.
‘It doesn’t mean I’m not unbelievably grateful, but it’s just as luck would have it I’ve fallen into them.’
All shook up: For the 2022 series Claudia dressed as rock and roll king Elvis, even keeping a cardboard cut-out in her dressing room
