Judi's Strictly journey


Week One: Cha Cha (6 + 6 + 6 + 6) = 24

Week Two: Samba (6 + 7 + 6 + 6) = 25

Week Three: Charleston (4 + 7 + 7 + 6) = 24

Week Four: Waltz (4 + 6 + 7 + 7) = 24

Judi's Strictly journey started with a respectable score, and she stayed consistent in Week Two. Consistent is the word of the moment with Judi as her score has barely changed week to week since - we'll see if that changes when she returns for Week Six.

Speaking of joining the Strictly line-up when she was announced, Judi said: “I think I am still in shock that I will be part of this amazing show. I’ve watched it for many years and admired the phenomenal abilities of these dancers and celebrities that have taken part and dedicated themselves to learning a new craft.

“I’m truly looking forward to pushing myself in something that I could have only dreamed of doing and now it’s actually coming true! I can’t lie, I’m soooo nervous, but excited at the same time.”
