“He said to me ‘Mum, you have got to stop doing Strictly, it’s so embarrassing and my teacher has mentioned it’,” she said.

“I just went, ‘See those trainers, Jake?’,” she added. “He was like, ‘OK, sorry!’”

Winkleman currently co-presents the hit dancing show with Tess Daly. She originally presented the weeknight spin-off Strictly It Takes Two from 2004 until 2010, when she joined Daly on the Sunday night results show.

The Traitors UK presenter was then promoted to permanent co-host after the late Bruce Forsyth announced his retirement from the show.

Of her Strictly role, Winkleman said at the festival: “My only job is to make sure [the celebs] are OK and to stop speaking on time.

“I know I’m not allowed to say I just paint myself orange and I read out loud, but really that is what I do most of the time. So, that’s the gig but it’s really, really thrilling.”
