Judi – who was partnered with Graziano Di Prima on the show – penned: ‘I’d love to keep dancing and I’ve contacted a personal trainer as I definitely want to keep up the level of fitness I developed on the show.’
‘I was hoping I’d lose some weight but I didn’t realise it would be that much, so I’m really pleased and keen to keep this health kick going.’
The comedian – who contracted Covid during her time on the show and had to take a week off the competition – added: ‘I’m still feeling the lasting effects of Covid-19, I’ve been so tired this week and I’ve got a bit of a cough, but I’m trying to keep myself as healthy as possible.’

It comes after Judi revealed her ‘fatigue was immense’ after being struck down with coronavirus.
Speaking on Tuesday’s Loose Women, she spoke about having to take a week off due to sickness and said her elimination was ‘bittersweet’.
She said: ‘The fatigue was immense. It was unbelievable. Chest wise and stuff. I wanted to just go back, I didn’t want to put my health at risk.
‘Strictly was so amazing at making sure it was the right time for me to go back, but I was like, ”guys I want to get back”.
‘I was not upset. I was coughing so much after that dance. Covid was all about the chest for me.
‘The fact I could get back up there again. This virus has affected all of us. There was a sense of fight in me, like no, this is not going to stop me.
‘I’m really happy I was dancing. It really contributed to me getting back on that stage.’
