Journalist Claudia Winkleman is one of the nation’s best loved broadcasters, co-host of Strictly Come Dancing and now Celebrity Best Home Cook for BBC1; easing us into the weekend with her Saturday morning Radio Two show, Claudia is family, and part of our homes.

Here you’ll discover the book that turned her from reluctant reader into bookworm, find out why teenage Claudia tucked a tea towel into her jeans and learn how she gets her children reading.

She tells us how she wrote Quite, an eclectic collection of witty essays on love, life and eyeliner, but also art, bridge, squirrels and much more, and about how she lends a comforting ear to clinical psychologist Tanya Byron’s guests on the How Did We Get Here? podcast (on Apple podcasts or Spotify).

On this podcast, Claudia mentions Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, George’s Marvellous Medicine, James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr Fox, The Famous Five, The Gruffalo, Harry Potter, Asterisk, Hidden Valley Road, Tess of the d’Urbervilles, We Need to Talk About Kevin and The Choice. She also mentions the fabulous Jackie Collins.

You can also find all those titles in Claudia’s list on our page.
