Tess Daly wants to move to New Zealand.

The "Strictly Come Dancing" host would love to "escape the British winters" and spend time with her sister who lives there as she misses her "terribly".

She said: "Every time we visit my sister Karen in New Zealand, I spend the next two months Googling properties and dreaming of escaping the British winter. It's summer over there, and it's gorgeous. I miss my sister terribly, because we're so close. I love the laid-back way of life. The people are friendly, the food's incredible, the climate's great, the landscape is beautiful."

And the 48-year-old television personality says her heart "breaks" every time her youngest daughter Amber, eight, asks to move there to be closer to her cousins.

Tess - who also has Phoebe, 13, with her husband Vernon Kay - added to the Daily Star newspaper: "My youngest is forever saying to me, "Mummy, can we please move to New Zealand, because I just want to be near my cousins?" It breaks my heart. I grew up with my cousins so close by."

Meanwhile, Tess previously revealed she reminds her kids they're "100 per cent northern".

She said: "It's weird, they sound so posh when they talk. But I keep reminding them that they are actually 100 per cent northern! ... My accent was never an issue. Not for other people anyway. I did remember hearing my accent and wondering whether I should be less, let's say, colloquial."
