Judi Love has spoken out after it was confirmed that she would not be taking part in this weekend’s edition of Strictly Come Dancing after testing positive for Covid-19.

The Loose Women star and comedian has been forced to self-isolate, with the news emerging on Thursday.

A Strictly spokesperson said: ‘Judi Love has tested positive for Covid-19 and is now self-isolating following the latest government guidelines.

‘While Judi and Graziano will not be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this weekend, Strictly Come Dancing protocols mean that all being well, they will return the following week.’

Judi herself gave fans a reassuring update shortly after her absence was announced.

She said on Twitter: ‘Hey my lovelies it’s with great disappointment that I will not be performing this weekend @bbcstrictly due to testing positive with Covid 19.

‘Hoping to make a speedy recovery & dance for you next weekend. Stay safe & thank you for your well wishes #JudiLove #Strictly.’

Her partner on the show, Graziano Di Prima, also shared a sweet message on his social media shortly after.

He wrote: ‘As you may have seen Judi has tested positive. So sorry to miss the show this week. Sending so much love to my queen @1judilove!!

‘We will come back next week stronger than ever!! #teamjudiano @bbcstrictly.

Fellow contestant Dan Walker soon sent out his love on Twitter, saying: ‘Sad to hear about @1Judilove and her positive Covid test.

‘I hope she’s ok and that she and @GrazianoDiPrima are able to come back to the show next week. Take care Judi.’



Many of Judi’s other co-stars commented on her Instagram, in which she copied the statement on her Twitter account.

Nancy Xu sent love hearts with the message: ‘Get better soon Judi.’

Adam Peaty responded: ‘Get better soon lovely, Evrryones going to miss you so much! [sic].’

Judge Motsi Mabuse and ex-pro Kevin Clifton also gave their love to the ITV daytime star.

It is not yet known whether any Loose Women stars will be impacted, as Judi has appeared on the ITV panel in recent days.

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday at 7.05pm on BBC One.
