Judi Love has taken to her Instagram Story to share a full-length mirror selfie in the dance studio during a quick break from rehearsals with her partner Graziano Di Prima. The Loose Women star showed off her 5lbs weight loss in an electric blue ensemble consisting of leggings and a patterned sports bra.
She jokingly captioned the snap: “Some bit shake but he loves it.”(sic)
The comedian had previously opened up about her Strictly training and consequent weight loss on Loose Women.
She said: “It’s just been great. I mean, I’ve lost about five pounds already.
“It’s been amazing. I’ve never experienced anything like this.”
She also recounted the nerves of her first dance, for which she scored 24 out of 40.
Judi explained: “It was an amazing weekend.”
She added: “It’s overwhelming but exciting at the same time, to think 10 days ago I didn’t even know or could do those steps.
“Somehow, Graziano has pushed me in a way that I’ve never been pushed before to do that final show, and live as well!”

Judi was paired up with Italian professional dancer Graziano, who confessed he initially was “a bit scared” of her due to her “big personality”.
Speaking on Loose Women, the dancer said: “I was a bit scared, to be honest as she has a big personality.”
Judi then explained that she and Graziano have enjoyed a lot of good conversations so far during the rehearsals.
She also candidly admitted that she finds her Strictly partner “beautiful to look at”.
Elaborating on her fears about the programme, she explained that Graziano has a special sentence to help her feel at ease.
She explained: “So the words are just me, and you – nothing else.
“It works, I was very nervous and I was shaking before I went on.
“I felt sick, they had to give me a sweet so I could level out and be ready.
‘I’m used to performing to live audiences in stand-up in my creative field, where I feel that I’ve worked to my personality.
“This, as you can see, is a dance… it was something completely out of my comfort zone… Knowing that it’s live, there’s no room for mistakes.”
Graziano added: “You know you are dancing on live television, but you can lose a step.
“That’s why we need a lot of rehearsals so you can just think about the enjoyment of the process.”
