Judi Love won’t be at Craig Revel Horwood’s wedding: ‘We don’t talk outside work’

Loose Women star Judi Love had the time of her life on Strictly Come Dancing last year and made a lifelong friend in her dance partner Graziano di Prima.

And while the pair have remained close enough for Judi to be invited for his wedding, Judi says she's not expecting to be invited to Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood's big day. Find out why in her latest OK! column below!

Easter is one of my favourite holidays as I have a lot of happy childhood memories of it. As a West Indian, there are so many traditions around Easter.

We have our traditional West Indian food, called an Easter Bun, and we don’t eat meat until Easter Sunday. Instead, on Friday, we have our traditional fried escovitch fish and hardo bread.

Then on Easter Sunday we have lamb. I’m so excited for this year’s celebrations – it’s one of those holidays where I see family and make lovely memories. My kids love all the traditions as well. Of course, they’ll get chocolate eggs – but so will mum!

Craig's wedding

Craig Revel Horwood has decided to push his wedding back, saying he didn’t realise how expensive weddings are. I don’t think I’d get an invite to Craig’s big day.

I’m not expecting one, as although we’ve worked together, we’ve not really spoken out of the workplace. I wish him all the luck, though.

Weddings and funerals are so expensive and I really think prices have gone up, so people need to be careful about what they are spending.

Noughts and Crosses

I’m going to be in a drama! I’ve filmed scenes for the second series of Noughts And Crosses, which is adapted from Malorie Blackman’s famous novel.

It’s an intriguing concept as within the show, the world is dominated by the Noughts, who are the black people, so systematic power is reversed.

Some people might find that uncomfortable, but it raises really important questions. Plus, it’s such great writing and a great cast. In the show, I play a news reporter and I was blown away by being on set. I’ve acted in comedies, but this was a totally new skill and I was in awe of everyone around me.

I learned so much about how programmes are made. I loved it though, so watch this space as I’d love to do more dramas.


I’m on the new series of Taskmaster, which starts on Channel 4 this week. It was one of the most fun things I’ve ever done and it really does bring out the child in you. As someone with dyslexia, I always worry about academic stuff, but then I’m usually good at creative things.

With Taskmaster, you film all the challenges in advance on your own, so it’s really hard to tell how you’ve done and you almost become competitive with yourself. At one stage, I was crying with laughter in the studio with the other guys as we were watching it all back. It was definitely a highlight of my career.

Last week at the Grammys, the Best Reggae Artist was won by a white American group called SOJA. There has been quite a bit of upset about it by other reggae artists.

Many have voiced that the recording academy members who vote need to have an understanding of the music and culture, and also need to reflect a wider scope of representation.

It doesn’t mean that people from different backgrounds shouldn’t embrace it, but the work and originality of where these things come from sometimes gets dismissed. One of the winners also imitated a Jamaican accent while accepting an award, which is offensive.
