Claudia Winkleman Speaks Out About Halloween Ordeal As She Returns To Strictly

Her eight-year-old was set alight last month.


Claudia Winkleman has spoken out on the Halloween tragedy that saw her eight-year-old daughter set on fire, saying that it “will be a long road to recovery”.

The presenter is set to return to Strictly Come Dancing tonight after taking leave for several weeks to stay at her daughter Matilda’s bedside.

The child suffered serious burn injuries when her Halloween costume was set alight by a candle at a party last month and Winkleman took to Twitter to thank NHS staff for their “extraordinary” efforts following the incident.
