The London-based English comedian, 41, is known for being a panellist on ‘Loose Women’. The star is also a contestant on this year’s ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, which returns to BBC One tonight. In week four Judi and her professional partner Graziano Di Prima will be hoping to avoid another dance-off. Last week she and Graziano found themselves in the bottom two against ‘Hollyoaks’ actor Katie McGlynn and her partner Gorka Marquez.

Judge Anton Du Beke opted to save Katie, but luckily for Judi his vote was overruled by Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Shirley Ballas.

Tonight, Judi and Graziano will dance the Waltz to Mariah Carey’s ‘Hero’ as they hope to make it through to next week.

As well as competing for the glitterball trophy, Judi also returns to our screens on ‘Blankety Blank’ tonight.

She will be put through her paces on the retro quiz show by host and question master Bradley Walsh.

Judi will be joined by John Thomson, Karim Zeroual, Sue Perkins, Joel Dommett and Gloria Hunniford.

The show, which was relaunched this year, sees six celebrities try to help contestants fill in the blanks to win prizes.

As a comedian and Loose Women star, Judi is known for her hilarious take on a number of issues.

However, she has also spoken about more serious topics, including the relationship with her ex-partner, who is the father to her two children.

The couple had a 16-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son together.

In a throwback Facebook video from April 2019, she discussed the relationships people have with their fathers, including her own kids.

She said: “I’m saying this to you from a place of love because I am a single parent and I have to deal with this daily.

“I try to speak to my kids about how mine and their father’s relationship has not developed.

“How I still want them to have respect. How certain things I won’t have and certain things I will have.

“I encourage their grandparents to be in their life because it’s so important.

“But I am also a woman that has come from a single mother who has a father that’s been around.

“But now I’m at this age of thirty-something, I’m thinking, ‘wow what really was mine and my father’s relationship?’.”

Judi appeared as a special guest on ‘Loose Women’ earlier this week and discussed how it felt to be in the Strictly dance-off.

She told her fellow panellists: “There’s no moment to get you really prepared. You’ve got to really get yourself into that mindset.

“I just always think about Graz – my professional dancer – how much he’s put into it.

“We just supported each other as much as possible and I was really happy with the dance.”

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One tonight from 7.10pm-9pm.
