Winkleman - "You can't expect to have the greatest job on earth forever. That's just greedy"

Strictly Come Dancing co-host Claudia Winkleman has said that she expects she will only work as a television presenter "for another few years".

While Winkleman joked in a Radio Times interview that she could "be fired after this series of Strictly, possibly on air!", she said that as a woman in her forties "you have a window" for being a television presenter.

However, she said she had not experienced sexism in the industry and when asked if there was more pressure on female presenters, she replied: "No, I don't think ...that's necessarily true. You can't expect to have the greatest job on earth forever. That's just greedy."

The new series of Strictly Come Dancing begins on BBC One on Sunday September 7 at 8:00pm.
