TV host Claudia Winkleman is loved by Strictly Come Dancing fans for her down to earth presenting style and stylish outfits.

Away from the cameras, Claudia, 51, is a devoted mother of three children, sharing Jake, 19, Matilda, 16, and Arthur, 11, with her husband of 22 years, film producer Kris Thykier. The star very rarely posts photos of her kids on social media, however, we have seen her children a few times over the years.

A few years back, Claudia posted this extremely rare photo of her eldest child Jake on her Instagram page, showing her son looking out on the spectacular landscape.

Alongside a similar photo shared on her main page, she explained their choice of destination. "16 year old said he'd only come away with me if it was 'unusual'. We are in love with you Iceland."

This is the only time we've seen Claudia's youngest two children, and the pair look so sweet together with big sister Matilda helping her little brother walk up some steps. It looks like the picture was taken on holiday judging by the kids' summery outfits.

The same year, Matilda was seriously injured when her Halloween costume caught fire after brushing against a candle. Following the incident, the government subsequently tightened the regulations around costume standards and thankfully Matilda made a full recovery.

The famous mum made a rare public appearance with one of her children back in 2007. Claudia took son Jake to the VIP press launch of The Snowman at London's Peacock Theatre with her friend, TV's Kirsty Young, and her daughter Freya.

In 2019, Claudia opened up to Notebook magazine about her coping with Jake growing up, revealing: "I used to follow him around and still try to chop up his sausages. I would be like, 'Can I hold your hand and say love you so much in front of all your friends?'

"But as they grow up, they become really funny and great company, so you go, OK. It's just a different relationship. So I'm no longer just feeding you and licking your neck, you are the best person I know to go out for dinner with."
