Strictly 2021: Sean Paul says Judi Love's historic twerk 'blew up his phone'
Sean Paul has left Strictly Come Dancing star Judi Love in meltdown after appearing on the show to congratulate her on her samba.
The Loose Women panellist and her partner Graziano Di Prima thrilled fans with their dance, with Sean Paul’s music being played on the show for the first time.
It was also a week of firsts, with Judi performing the first ever twerk on the show and the judges dubbing it ‘historic’.
Congratulating the star on her dance, the She Doesn’t Mind hitmaker said in a sweet video: ‘Hey Judi, what’s up? It’s Sean Paul.
‘Last week you blew up my phone. All different people calling me and telling me you did Get Busy!
‘So I had to check it out for myself and ya know, you did your thing. So big up and good luck on the next instalment of Strictly!’
Judi was understandably in absolute pieces, hugging Graziano and rapidly offering to be in the musician’s next music video.
Now that is something we need to see.
Judi told Metro.co.uk of her iconic samba: ‘I’m so glad we had that routine, there was a bit of samba in there, a bit of me, a bit of Graz, and our chemistry came across. It was entertaining and fun and it was everything me and Graz try to represent.’
‘I knew she had rhythm, but she worked so hard, and I knew this would be a good number,’ Graziano said. ‘The response of the audience was amazing. I’m so grateful I got to do this routine with Judi and day by day, our friendship is going up, we’re having so much fun.’
‘I think we laugh as much as we dance!’ added Judi.
This week, Judi performed a fierce Charleston with Graziano, scoring 24 from the judges.
Here’s hoping it’s enough to see her remain in the competition!
