Claudia Schiffer: I turned down Arab prince’s £1million dinner date

Claudia Schiffer was offered a million dollar date by an Arab prince

The German star, 43, who refuses to name the prince, told chat show host Jonathan Ross she did not take him up on the offer and another model accepted the bizarre invitation.

Asked by Ross what kind of offers she had during her reign as one of the original supermodels, she said: “Loads of weird ones, but the strangest one was from an Arab prince.

“He asked if he could hire me for a dinner for a million pounds. I declined, and some other supermodel took it.”

Claudia also revealed she was “the loser at school”.

She said: “Everyone called me Duck because my bum stuck out and I walked kind of funny because my legs are a bit funny, and I was really tall.

“I didn’t have any friends.”

And the global star admitted to being shy. “I am just shy when there are lots of people,” she said. “I’m OK when we’re just one on one, or maybe four people. I’m a really, really shy person.”

She added that modelling had helped. “Once I put the make-up on I’d go ‘OK, I can cope’,” she said.
