Claudia will return to co-host alongside Tess Daly.

But today, the BBC confirmed that Claudia will join Tess Daly in co-hosting this weekend's live performances and results show.

Claudia has been absent in recent weeks while caring for her daughter Matilda, eight, who was injured while trick or treating in London at the end of October.

It's believed the child's Halloween costume caught fire.

At the time, a statement was issued on the behalf of Claudia and her husband Kris Thykier, saying: "She is having the best care possible and we are hopeful of a full recovery.

"We would like to thank everyone that has been so supportive. We would like to thank everyone that has been so supportive and particularly the NHS doctors, nurses and staff who have been absolutely incredible."

The couple are also parents to two other children.

Claudia was replaced by Zoe Ball while away.
