I think Claudia does a good job of presenting light-hearted TV shows but she's not a comedian and, in fairness to her, neither does she purport to be.
She's a cheerful soul who's game for a laugh and, as such, isn't an entirely unreasonable choice when it comes to filling a chair on a comedy panel show.
I wouldn't say I was a fan of hers but I find her pleasant enough.
Yes, there are many other women in Britain far more entertaining than Claudia but, on the other hand, there are many others who are a great deal less entertaining - and some of them are calling themselves comedians and appearing on TV.
They could certainly have booked somebody a hell of a lot worse.
