"It could be a person, it could be a place."

Claudia and her team pay so much attention to her themes that even her dressing room matches her clothes.

"One year I was Andre Agassi, when I had long bits in my hair, and we put turf in my dressing room," she explained.

Claudia then went on to reveal some celebrities that have inspired her looks, such as EastEnders' Pam St Clement, Slash from Guns 'n' Roses, Joan Rivers, Sharon Osbourne, Rob Kardashian and Elton John amongst many more.

"My favourite, though, was when we dressed the whole series as Sexy Fish, the restaurant in London."

Whilst Claudia jazzes up her outfits every week, one thing that doesn't change is her iconic fringe.

Speaking about it to Grazia last year, she explained: "Growing up I always had a fringe. I would often pair it with bunches, I mean, buckle up, how disgusting is that?! Years later I went, had a fringe cut, and it was quite – and this is the worst word in the whole world – whispy – so I had to go back and I said, 'Can I have an unapologetic fringe? Really heavy.'"
