Christine Bleakley admits she''s a ''Karen Millen girl''

First published: 04-05-2010

Christine Bleakley remains a Karen Millen girl, despite growing demand for her presenting skills on high-profile television shows.

The TV presenter and potential future host for the BBC''s popular Strictly Come Dancing show has admitted that she would prefer a Karen Millen watch or outfit to an alternative, high-fashion piece of apparel.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Bleakley explained that she often feels uncomfortable dressed in more expensive bits of clothing, such as when she was a contestant on the show.

She told the newspaper: "The dresses weren''t sexy. At least on me they weren''t. I felt awkward the whole way through.

"Every Saturday people would be more and more relaxed - I was the opposite."

The One Show host is set to replace Tess Daly on the BBC dance show, with TV bosses reportedly hopeful she can prove a draw for audiences.

Her new role on the primetime slot comes after her fellow One Show presenter Adrian Chiles quit the Beeb for ITV.
