TESS Daly has admitted she may need a nanny to help her look after her two daughters.

The Strictly Come Dancing host, who is married to former St John Rigby pupil Vernon Kay, hinted that she could consider getting help to look after seven-year-old Phoebe and Amber, three, because of the amount of work they had turned down.

She told New! magazine: “I did say the word ‘nanny’ last week fir the first time.

“I see having a nanny as a luxury but it may become a necessity in the coming months for Strictly

“There’s a part of me that feels like I’ve thrown in the towel because I can’t keep all the balls in the air.”

Meanwhile the 43-year-old let it slip that music mogul Simon Cowell is a secret Strictly Come Dancing fan, despite being involved in the rival show X Factor.

She told Star magazine; “Every time I see Simon he asks me about Strictly. He really enjoys it.”
