Judi can be seen as a regular panellist on ITV’s Loose Women, including being on the first episode to feature an all-black panel, which received a prestigious RTS Programme Award for the Daytime category.

Judi has also appeared on a number of TV shows, including Taskmaster, The Royal Variety Performance, This Morning, Good Morning Britain, Celebrity Juice, BBC’s This Is My House, The Graham Norton Show, The Ranganation, and more. She made quite the impact on Strictly Come Dancing 2021, including her now infamous Sean Paul Samba. And she was even crowned Masterchef Celebrity Christmas Special champion 2021.

Ahead of the show, she said: "I'm overwhelmed with shock and disbelief that this is really happening. I'm nervous, anxious, excited, I'm full of all those emotions. You see your favourites doing this so to be in the same situation now, I can't wait to start.

"It's about what the show brings, if it's something I'm connected to or if I can show my personality. Somewhere where I can be my authentic self. I love to talk, for example, so Loose Women and Taskmaster you get to see me just being me."
