She has also spoken out about how dancing in the show helped her recover from Covid. "I've got to say thanks to Strictly because doing this dance and getting healthier, fighting Covid, it really, really has helped me physically and health-wise and it's just an amazing experience," she said on another episode of Strictly.

On Instagram, she also stressed how she believed exercise and dancing had made her battle with Covid easier. "I give thanks that I was doing the exercise and dancing thing," she said. "I feel like I'm handling it much better than I would have if I hadn't been doing the exercise and the sweat."

She added: "I just want to say to you I'm here. It's been a rough couple of days and it's really about for you to get your health in order. Health is wealth and I'm not just talking about cashing that cheque."

Judi has also revealed how partner Graziano helped her both physically and mentally: "Somehow, Graziano has pushed me in a way that I've never been pushed before," she said.
