Loose Women star Judi Love may have shone on Strictly Come Dancing last year, but she has ruled out an appearance on ITV skating show Dancing on Ice.
Speaking in her exclusive OK! column, the 41 year old comedian said there was no chance she'd take part in the ITV competition, which she described as "no joke". Here Judi opens up about why she won't be getting her skates on anytime soon, and who she's backing to win the series.

GREAT ON SKATES
Dancing On Ice is no joke, and not something I personally would do. It takes danger to a whole new level!
I’ve got my eye on Kye Whyte, the BMX Olympian. In South London, there’s a big BMX centre run by CK Flash (@CKFlashMBE) called Peckham BMX Club.
CK actually got an MBE for his services to youth sport and Kye is one of his students, so it’s great to see him competing on such a high-pro le programme.
I filmed something last week that I can’t tell you about just yet, but it was a different avenue for me, and more of an acting role than anything I’ve done before.
It made me realise that I’d love to pursue more acting roles in future. As a comedian, there’s a lot of different routes you can go down.
I’ve done presenting and stand up, so I’d love to try acting too and work with the actresses I really admire.
Last weekend, I went to Edinburgh to see some friends. Each time I visit, I fall in love with the city more and more. The food is just divine.
Having friends work in different parts of the country during lockdown has given me a greater appreciation of these different places.
Edinburgh is bursting with culture and, of course, it’s the hub of comedy. I’ve performed there a few times and I’d love to do my own show in the city at some stage in my career. I really enjoyed my weekend catching up with friends and eating lovely food.
EXCLUSIVE TO OK! VIP CLUB
Last week, news broke that up to 80,000 NHS workers could face the sack if they don’t get vaccinated. It’s such a hard situation, as getting the jab or not really is a personal decision.
These NHS staff, who’ve been putting themselves at risk on the frontline during the pandemic, are now being faced with an ultimatum – and that feels really harsh.
But then you think of vulnerable patients who’d prefer to be treated by vaccinated staff. It’s a really tricky situation and an argument that’s tearing families apart. I wish I had all the answers.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
I recently read about an Australian woman who has two vaginas, a condition called uterus didelphys.
Some may think stories like this are a bit odd, or even funny, but it’s important for them to be told as there will be women with similar conditions who find the information helpful.
We often find it hard to be open about women’s health – so hats off to this woman for being brave enough to talk about it. I’m sure there will be people out there who feel less alone because of what she’s shared.
Research has shown that Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka are the most abused tennis players on the circuit. Honestly, it surprises me that people are shocked by this news.
These two women have faced abuse for years. They are both women of colour. Serena has faced negative comments about her body shape, while Naomi has been attacked for putting her mental health first.
Despite the abuse aimed at Serena, women are now going to the gym and doing all they can to get thick thighs like hers. It’s just oneof the many things black women have been abused for that’s now become fashionable. I’m glad this issue is being highlighted– abuse should never be dismissed.
