The Strictly Come Dancing host isn't a fan of H2O

Claudia Winkleman has revealed she won’t have sex with husband Kris Thykier is he’s been drinking water.

The Strictly Come Dancing host recently opened up on the bizarre bedroom confession, revealing she doesn’t “like or believe” in H2O.

The TV star, 48, tied the knot with film producer Kris, also 48, in 2000.

What did Claudia Winkleman say?

Speaking on the Off The Menu podcast, Claudia shared: “I don’t like or believe in water, I won’t have it… I’ve never knowingly had water, I don’t like it.

“When people drink it, like my husband drinks great amounts of water, and I really like him but it’s problematic.

I just don’t like liquid… is this too weird?

“He’s glugging, don’t touch me, ‘Clau, take your bra off’… I don’t think so. That was disgusting, you should be ashamed of yourself.”

Podcast hosts Ed Gamble and James Acaster were left in hysterics as Claudia later called the sound of glugging “disgusting”.

She added: “I’m never thirsty, I’ve never been thirsty…. and I don’t like the taste. Sparkling is too much of a shock.

“I just don’t like liquid… is this too weird?”

It certainly isn’t the first time Claudia has discussed her bedroom antics with filmmaker Kris.

Last week, the star revealed she feels pressure to have sex with her husband every 48 hours.
