In preparation, Judi is incorporating high-intensity interval training sessions, weight lifting and fasting into her routine.

Speaking to The Mirror, she explained: “There was a battle, but I thought even if I do half of it, which I manage… before I know it I’ve done the 15 minutes.

“Throughout the day I can always look back and think, ”At least I’ve done 15 minutes this morning.’ I try to do a lot of fasting as well.”

However, Judi does enjoy weight lifting sessions.

The star added: “I think the only exercise when I do it I feel the endorphins and feel powerful is when I do a little bit of weights.”

Meanwhile, Judi isn’t the only Strictly star getting in shape for the new series.
