Strictlys Judi Love issued grooming advice by Katie Piper ahead of show debut

Strictly Come Dancing star Judi Love has been given some top grooming advice by fellow Loose Women panelist Katie Piper.

Katie has recently joined the ITV lunchtime show team and couldn't wait to offer some words of wisdom to Judi.

The mother of two competed in the BBC dancing show back in 2008 and was paired up with professional dancer Gorka Marquez.

Speaking to the Mirror in a recent interview to promote her book A Little Bit Of Faith, Katie said: "I told her [Judi] that the costumes are skimpy to shave your legs right up to the top, and your bikini line".

Judi, 41, is set to take to make her Strictly debut next weekend alongside the likes of Dragons' Den star Sara Davies and actress Katie McGlynn.

The comedian is currently undergoing high-intensity training sessions and lifting weights to help get her into shape.

Speaking on fellow comedian Jason Manford’s Feel Good Tool Kit podcast Judi was asked if she likes to fit?

She said: "I was going to say, 'Have a look at me.'

"I’m a plus-sized girl and people just think, 'You’re not fit.'

"I must say, over the last year or so I’m thinking more about my health.

"If I go to a building and there’s a lift and some stairs, I will try my best to take the stairs instead.

"So, it’s those little things I’m trying to be a bit more aware of. So I’m going to say yes, kind of. Almost."

None of Judi's Loose Women colleagues had an idea she was joining Strictly until she shared the news live on air.

It still remains unknown who Judi will be paired up with for the show but all will be revealed on Saturday night.

Elsewhere in the Strictly studio, contestants Tom Fletcher and Adam Peaty have been banned from Instagram for sharing nude fake tan snaps.

Olympic medal-winning swimmer Adam and McFly singer Tom shared a hilarious snap of them stripped down getting a spray tan to prepare for the upcoming dancing series.

Tom preserved Adam’s modesty with a strategically placed hand and some clever use of camera angles, while Adam grinned in the background.

But Instagram clearly did not find the image amusing as it took the photo down and banned the pair for |sexual activity".

Adam took the actioning in his stride, sharing a screenshot of the message along with a crying-with-laughter emoji joking: "Great, removed for sexual activity!"

Adam added: "Mad how Instagram get to decide what I upload and what I don't. Community guidelines should be your community.

The swimmer also shared the image on Twitter and wrote: "It’s @bbcstrictly time! Hope this doesn’t get removed this time."
