Is Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly hosting Strictly Come Dancing a big deal?

The first prime time female presenting team; that's what Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly are tipped to be on next season's Strictly Come Dancing. Historic moment or feminist waffle?

Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly apparently have the Strictly Come Dancing presenting job in the bag.

"It's their's to turn down", according to a BBC source for the MailOnline.

After the announcement of Bruse Forsyth's departure, rumours were rife about his replacement, would Rob Brydon fill his very shiny shoes, or would they just give the job to the women who'd been sharing it with him for the past two years?

Speculation would suggest they've gone for the latter option, the source explained, "They are both hugely popular with viewers and it is thought they will make a great team.

"They are familiar faces to Strictly viewers, but the appointment of two female presenters will shake the programme up."

As much as we love a bit of girl power, there's a little part of us that wishes this wasn't being presented as a feminist issue.

Mrs Fringe is great at her job and has been doing it well for years, surely that's the real reason she should get Bruce's job?

Much like the moment recently, when comedy panel shows decided there had to be a woman present on every show, there is a little part of us cringing at the idea that having two women on a prime time Saturday night show would be a 'shake up'.
