Tess: I won’t dis­cuss fat in front of kids

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS - BY VAZ SAYED

TESS Daly says she never men­tions her weight in front of her daugh­ters in case they start wor­ry­ing about their looks.

The Strictly host – mum to Phoebe, 13, and Am­ber, eight – said: “If I’m feel­ing a bit fat­ter I won’t talk about it. I try to in­stil in them that their char­ac­ter is a lot more im­por­tant than their ap­pear­ance.”

Tess, 48, added: “I’ve a strong body. I can run all day and night and not be tired. But if I need to lose an inch or so around the waist, I’ll just try to lay off the white bread.”

Speak­ing of fam­ily life to Fit & Well mag­a­zine, Tess said kids needed ex­er­cise “like pup­pies”. “We go bike rid­ing, walk the dogs, go for walks by the river in the Chiltern hills. We are to­tally ac­tive,” she said.
