Strictly fans are all saying the same thing as host Claudia Winkleman steps out in a cape


Saturday evening’s Strictly Come Dancing live final saw Hamza Yassin bag the glitterball trophy.

But many eyes were on host Claudia Winkleman as she stepped out for the glamorous show in a white jumpsuit and eye-catching embellished cape on top.

The presenter, 50, herself admitted she was channelling Elvis Presley with the ensemble, as many fans took to social media to liken her to superheroes, entertainers and Star Wars characters.

Seeing the funny side, Claudia shared a snap to Instagram as she posed alongside a cardboard cutout of the late King of Rock’N’Roll.

Turning in towards the cutout, her cape was the focus of the shot as Elvis was pictured in one of his signature white jumpsuits. 

Explaining the wardrobe choice, the co-host to Tess Daly captioned: ‘Every year on Strictly we have an inspiration. Past years we’ve had Pam St Clements, Harry Hill, Rod Stewart and Anita Dobson. 

‘This year it’s the king. So yes, we end in a cape. All love and thanks to @sineadmckeefry @amyhair4 @lucyg_makeup and @debbiedannell;.

The outfit didn’t go unnoticed either, with viewers rushing to Twitter to discuss the ensemble during the show. 

Many likened her to entertainer Evel Knievel, who famously wore an all-in-one jumpsuit with an US flag cape attached. 

‘Best cloak action since Evel Knievel,’ penned one.

While others decided shewas more similar to Star Wars’ Princess Leia, who is also known to wear all-white.

Understanding the intention, another jested ‘Claudia has left the building’ while adding a gif of Elvis in the similar outfit.

She and co-host Tess took to screens for the final time this series during the live show, which saw wildlife cameraman Hamza and professional partner Jowita Przystal take the win.

The duo beat out some tough competition as Helen Skelton, Fleur East and Molly Rainford all battled it out in the final too.
