Judi Love offers her full support to Robert Webb after he pulls out of Strictly

In her latest OK! column, Judi Love has shared her support for fellow Strictly star Robert Webb, who was forced to pull out of the competition this week due to health reasons.

The Loose Women star, 41, also shares her thoughts on being in the bottom two following her Charleston with partner Graziano Di Prima.

Judi writes: "We were in the dance off last week after our Charleston.

"At that moment, you go into fight or flight mode and I just knew I had to try and concentrate as much as I can and preserve my energy to put it all into the dance.

"Afterwards, when I got saved there was a sense of relief."

Judi continued to say she is "so pleased" to have another chance to dance this week.

She adds: "We’re really focusing and putting all our energy into training. It’s funny though, I haven’t really been looking at it as a competition but more as an experience to grow – so it isn’t until you get into a dance off that you’re reminded!

"It’s because we’re all so close so it doesn’t feel as though we’re really competing against each other, more like we’re just competing against ourselves and being the best we can be.

"It was hard to say bye to Katie and it makes it even more difficult when you’re the one being saved."

Katie McGlynn and her dance partner Gorka Marquez were up against Judi and Graziano in the dance off last week, and Judi says it was particularly hard to say goodbye to soap star Katie.

"Katie and I had already been talking earlier in the week about how we can’t wait to meet up after Strictly when we’re not having to socially distance."

Judi explains, "So it was really difficult to both be in the dance off, but we've chatted since.

"We actually have a Strictly family 2021 Whatsapp group where we all keep in touch during the week.

"We’ll send funny pictures during the dance where we’ve been caught pulling a funny face. We’ll share advice about aching feet and things like that too!"

The presenter and comedian also sent her love to fellow star Robert Webb, who was forced to pull out of the competition. Judi explains: "This week, we’ve had to say goodbye to two people, as Robert has had to pull out.

"He has to put his health first and we fully support him."
