The presenter revealed that she would be going on her first-ever tour, and in her typical fashion she announced it in a low-key fashion. Claudia shared the tour's poster and simply wrote: "So this is happening. It will be awful / fun. Tickets are on sale this Friday. X."

The tour, which is titled Behind the Fringe, will last for ten shows and run from 25 April up until 10 May.

WOW: Claudia Winkleman's dazzling Strictly outfit is the best thing you'll see

In a statement, the 50-year-old explained what fans can expect from the show, and it's made us so excited!

She said: "Right, what is Behind the Fringe? Well, it's more of an 'evening with' than anything else. Some chatter at the beginning – boots; eye-liner; the wonder of melted cheese; why holidays are awful; the importance of a man who doesn't believe in star signs, and why people who name their cars should be avoided.

The star revealed a ten-date tour

"I know. Sounds absolutely horrendous. On the upside there will be a mass live fringe trim on stage."

She added: "Act two is all about you, the audience. Think large velvet chair (I cannot confirm it will be velvet) and me interviewing anyone who ticked a box on arrival. Potential for matchmaking, fact checking and soul searching before a big sing song (Frozen's Let It Go; probably) and then we head for home."

Claudia and Tess are very close friends

Her fans got very excited, including her Strictly co-host Tess Daly who wrote: "Brilliant!" alongside a clapping emoji and a string of heart-eyed face ones. Claudia then responded with a series of heart emojis.
