The 44-year-old former fashion model has received a lot of criticism over her bold fashion choices, but Tess has slammed her critics, labelling them sexist.

In a recent interview with Women’s Health magazine, Vernon Kay’s missus said that a black dress saved her from total televised humiliation when she leaked breast milk live on air!

Tess revealed: “I’ve even lactated on live TV – I hadn’t had time to express each side before going on.

The stunning blonde continued: “Thank God I was wearing a black dress!”

I’ve even lactated on live TV… Thank God I was wearing a black dress!

Yummy mummy Tess has revealed the leaked milk incident isn’t the only wardrobe malfunction to leave her red-faced; one time during filming her microphone pack became unclipped, falling down her knickers – almost taking her pants down with it!

As this year’s series of the ballroom dancing show has progressed, much of the show’s coverage has been structured around Ms Daly’s outfit selections.

Twitter trolls have criticised many of her glamorous gowns with slurs ranging from ‘dowdy’ to ‘unflattering.’

Aware of how lucky she is to have such a wonderful job, Tess doesn’t rise to the catty comments.

She said: “It’s a reminder that being a woman is very different from being a man on TV. Their outfits aren’t gossiped about endlessly.

Tess added: “I don’t want to be another person complaining about their job. I rise about it.”

Having worked in the modelling industry, Tess understands the steps some women take in order to feel beautiful– but she insists she will not resort to surgery.

“There are loads of things I’m not happy with – my big hooky nose for instance. But it’s important to be comfortable in your own skin.”

The star reveals being the face of La Senza “was fun”.

“I’d cut down on the carbs a week before but I can’t give up chocolate – I’d still have a little bit every day. If I was sugar-free, I’d be psycho.”

The gorgeous blonde claims her enviable figure is thanks to regular exercise, saying: “I do yoga and Pilates, but I’m not militant about it. I try to make fitness a part of my everyday routine.

“Vernon puts the exercise bike in the front room so I can work out while I’m watching TV.”
