Judi Love has candidly opened up on her bond with her Strictly Come Dancing partner Graziano Di Prima.

Loose Women star Judi, 41, revealed she confides on professional dancer Graziano, 27, for advice and support.

When asked why she thinks Graziano is the right dane partner for her, Judi revealed: "I feel like I can speak to him about my worries. When I say, 'I’m feeling nervous about this,' or, 'I’m not sure about that,' he’s like, 'Don’t worry, we can move like this and think like this.'"

Judi was also quizzed on what was playing on her mind, she said: "You quickly realise just how much you want to do your best for your partner and for yourself. I’m going to have to push myself beyond anything I’ve done before.

"It might make me feel vulnerable, but I’ve just got to go for it, even though I might make a mistake."

Loose Women star Judi opened up on her nerves for the live performances as she said: "Normally, when people see us on stage or TV, they see the picture-perfect finished product. They don’t see the rehearsals. In this show, the audience sees all the things we usually edit out. There’s nowhere to hide!"

Judi added: "I can’t wait. It’s going to be an amazing journey, full of different emotions."

The Loose Women star was also asked what drives her to get up every morning to attend gruelling rehearsals.

"It’s quite a big show that I’ve been recording – I can’t tell you what it is just yet but life is busy right now!

"I am lucky I’ve had friends to help with the children and all the household stuff. It’s just about taking each day at a time."
