Cat Deeley is planning to play it safe with her choice of Emmy outfit.

The 'So You Think You Can Dance' host - who is nominated for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Programme at next month's ceremony - admitted she won't be donning a "dead swan" or "native American" look, as she's worried this could be her only chance to shine.

She said: "It's definitely going to be something, but it's not going to be dead-swan Bjork, Native American Cher or ballerina Lara Flynn Boyle, because I might never get nominated again. And if this is my only one time I don't want to look back and go, 'Oh, my God - what was I thinking?'

"If I was nominated again I'd be like, 'Hey, great. I've done the classic - now let's really shake them up'. Then I'll be fun. But until I get through this first one and then maybe if I get the second one, who knows? Hawaiian? Belly dancer? I don't know!" Despite her best intentions, fellow nominee Ryan Seacrest has warned the 34-year-old beauty it won't matter what she wears, as 'Survivor' presenter Jeff Probst will win the award anyway.

Cat added to People magazine: "I spoke to Ryan on the radio. And I told him how excited I was. And he goes, 'OK, Deeley, I hate to burst your bubble, but here's how it's going to be.' He said, 'You're going to find a gorgeous dress, you're going to look very beautiful. I'm going to go there and I'm going to wear a suit.

"We're going to go and make lots of polite conversation with quite a few people we don't really need to talk to. And then we're going to sit there and be bored. And then Jeff Probst is going to go up and he's going to win the] award'."
