Claudia Winkleman cuddles up to handsome husband on night out ahead of Strictly final

Claudia Winkleman enjoyed a night out with her husband of 14 years Kris Thykier ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing final on Saturday night. The mum-of-three, who was absent from three episodes of the dancing competition she has been co-hosting alongside Tess Daly to care for her young daughter Matilda, enjoyed some much deserved down-time with her other half.

The brunette looked gorgeous as she posed with her hubby at a screening of the new movie Trash at London's Electric Cinema on Monday night.

While she hosted the night alongside Emma Freud and Laura Bailey, Claudia added a romantic touch to the proceedings as she stayed close to her TV producer husband.

For the occasion, the Strictly co-presenter stepped out in a black shirt with matching trousers and leopard-print boots.

Meanwhile, her hubby opted for a black V-neck sweater over a blue shirt, while a smart grey coat kept him warm on the chilly night.

The pair, who have struggled with their marriage in the past, have three children together, Jake, 11, Matilda, eight, Arthur three and live in central London.

During a recent interview with Red magazine, Claudia revealed that work commitments had threatened her marriage.

"All I know is that you can have a different marriage with the same man," she explained.

"I think it's also about growing older and being cosy. Working too hard puts a strain on – but we're still working hard now,' she added.

"We don't have rules, but we look after each other more. So whoever comes home first normally makes the dinner. It's just about being nice to each other."

The pair faced another difficult time recently when their daughter was injured in a Halloween accident.

Matilda's costume caught fire while she was out trick-or-treating in London with her mum, and was consequently hospitalised with severe burns.
