Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Judi Love has tested positive for Covid-19 and she will miss this weekend’s show.

The Loose Women star, who lives in London with her two children, and her professional partner Graziano Di Prima will sit out Saturday’s show.

In line with the Government’s advice, the 41-year-old star has been self-isolating.

They will return to the glittering dance floor alongside the other stars competing next week.

BBC released the statement: “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.”

Ms Love and Mr Di Prima planned to dance to Physical by Olivia Newton-John.

Ahead of appearing on the show, the TV star revealed she had spent many years admiring the celebrities and professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing.

She 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.”
