Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman, 48, has been married to her husband Kris Thykier for over two decades. The BBC favourite has since revealed she can’t stand when her other half drinks water.

Claudia explained that she has a bizarre phobia of water and she will not kiss her husband if he has just finished a glass.

The Strictly host spilled all in a recent podcast as she warned her other half: “Don’t touch me”.

The BBC radio host cheekily joked that she wanted a man more like Mr Burns’ character from The Simpsons, a “shrivelled up little man” who stays away from water.

Speaking about her phobia, Claudia said: “I don’t like or believe in water, I won’t have it. I’ve never knowingly had water, I don’t like it.

“When people drink it, like my husband drinks great amounts of water, and I really like him but it’s problematic.

“He’s glugging, don’t touch me, ‘take your bra off’. I don’t think so.”

She continued: “Imagine you’re on a date – I’ve been with the same man for 100 years – and he’s sitting there and he’s like, ‘I don’t know what to have, what are you going to have? Maybe we should have the same thing.’

“And someone comes round and says, ‘Would you like some water?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, sure.’

“And they give him a pint glass of water and he drinks the whole thing. Are you going to want to kiss this man or more? No!”

Claudia added to Off The Menu podcast, saying: “A wet mouth with a big fleshy tongue that is covered in liquid.”

She went on: “I want a dry, shrivelled up little man, I want to sleep with Mr Burns, he doesn’t drink water, I want him at the table.

“Just don’t like liquid, I don’t like wine, there’s all kinds of stuff, is this too weird?”

The Strictly host has been married to husband Kris since 2000 and the couple have three children together; Matilda, Jake and Arthur.

The couple recently celebrated the 20th wedding anniversary back in June.

Claudia recently opened up about the early days of the couple’s relationship as she revealed the moment the presenter “terrified” Kris.

The BBC favourite admitted she always wanted to have children and told her beau on the couple’s second date.

“Yes. I was just waiting to have a baby,” Claudia explained to the Daily Mail.

“I think it was on our second date, I told him I was ovulating, which was probably quite terrifying for him.”

Meanwhile, Claudia will soon be reuniting with her co-host Tess Daly – albeit socially distanced – for the new series of Strictly.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One later this month.
