Claudia Winkleman on Workplace Nerves, Beauty Essentials and Embracing Failure

Tuesday, 4 May

What’s it like to be counted down and know that, in seconds, you’re going to be speaking live to millions of people across the UK? Nerve-wracking, according to Claudia Winkleman, but she wouldn’t have it any other way. Whether she’s dazzling presenting Strictly or chatting into the mic for her Radio 2 show, the broadcaster, mother-of-three and Head & Shoulders ambassador still gets a real buzz of excitement. As at-home as she appears, she tells our editor-in-chief Claire Sanderson in today’s episode, that she might not do it perfectly, but that that’s okay. Because – according to Claudia – perfection is overrated and ‘failure is excellent’. It’s the approach she brings not only to her job, but also to parenting – and maintaining her health – and in today’s episode, she breaks it down. Claudia is a real joy to listen to - listen on for her number one energy hack; her skin and hair care essentials; and her strategies for raising a confident teenage daughter.
