The 49-year-old television presenter has insisted that "men are the hardest to shop for" and admitted that her husband - who she shares daughters Phoebe, 14, and nine-year-old Amber with - is sick of her giving him shirts and shoes.

Speaking to the Sun Online, she said: "Men are the hardest to shop for. I did have a list from Vernon and he said, 'Well, don't buy me any more clothes please.'

"That's because I end up buying him some closed shirts and shoes, and he's like 'no, I don't need any more of them thanks very much."

The 'Strictly Come Dancing' host confessed that this year she's sticking to buying her husband "boys toys".

"So I've switched now, probably something to do with golf. Men love boys toys, mini drones, anything that flies.

"So I'm still looking. Men are difficult to shop for. We need an app for them that leads us in the right direction."

The former model went on to detail how she and her family will spend Christmas day, and said that her kids "love Christmas" however aren't keen on all the food.

She said: "We will probably have nine people, we'll prep the veg the night before because on the day I don't like missing out on the fun and the party games, and present opening. Kids love routine.

"My kids love Christmas... 'Mum we will have carols, we will play with Grandma, we will have roast turkey and Brussels sprouts.'

"I say 'but you hate Brussels sprouts' ... and they say 'but I love them at Christmas. I love Christmas, it's my favourite time of the year."
