Dame Judi Dench returns to TikTok for song lyric challenge with grandson and it’s pure gold

Dame Judi Dench fast became the queen of TikTok last year, after she and ger grandson, Sam Williams, started making videos – and she’s returned for more.

The Oscar-winning actress, 86, had a great time over the summer as she filmed socially-distanced dancing videos with Sam in the garden.

The latest instalment sees Sam quizzing the film legend on song lyrics – and it’s safe to say that despite not getting a single one right, it’s the sweetest video ever.

Sam challenged Dame Judi to take on the viral trend, telling her: ‘Grandma, as you know, last time we did jokes. Now it’s my time to get revenge – pop song lyrics…’

Dame Judi replied: ‘Oh Sam!’, to which he added: ‘I’m going to read you a lyric, and you have to finish the next lyric.’

The first song was by Dame Judi’s Cats co-star Jason Derulo, with Sam reading out: ‘Let me take you dancing…’

Dame Judi finished the lyric with: ‘You’ve nothing on tonight? Actually quite a good line!’

Other lyrics she didn’t get quite right were to Ed Sheeran’s Castle On The Hill, as well as the Jonas Brothers’ Sucker, which she thought was: ‘I’m a sucker for you… be a sucker back for me?’

Fans were over the moon to see Dame Judi back on the app, as she previously spoke about how much filming TikTok videos had helped her in the first lockdown.

She told Channel 4 News in July: ‘Well it saved my life. I know nothing about TikTok. Sam is the person who is technically minded and who has all the ideas, so he got very strict.

‘He made me do it. I had to rehearse, I had to rehearse all those moves. Don’t just think that comes naturally.’

She added: ‘You wake up and wonder what day it is, and then you wonder what date it is, and sometimes what month.

‘And then you think, “What do I do today?” and if the prospect is, “Well what is there to do today?”

‘I planned to learn every Shakespeare sonnet. Well, I’ve got to about nine, and there are 154, so I’ve got a bit of a way to go there.

‘I’ve done a bit of painting and I’ve talked to friends and rehearsed my TikTok and done it with Sam.’
