Judi Love has cast doubt on whether she will return to Strictly on Saturday as she continues to struggle with Covid.

The Loose Women star, who is partnered with pro Graziano Di Prima, was forced to pull out of last weekend's show after contracting coronavirus.

And the 41-year-old comedian has shared her exhaustion in battling the virus, saying that she had "done all the West Indian recipes and remedies" in a bid to get better.

Judi also explained that she had had a "rough couple of days" and said that had been a warning to "get [her] health in order".

She added that having the virus made it feel as though she was "locked up".

Celebrities this year have been allowed one bye if they get coronavirus this year - but if they have to miss a second week (due to illness or injury) they will have to pull out of the competition.

Sharing a video from bed on Instagram, she said: "I don't even know what day it is. Some kind of motivation day.

"I just want to say to you guys, Rona is real. I give thanks that I was doing little exercise and dancing thing. I feel like I'm handling it much better than I would have had if I hadn't been doing little exercise and a little sweat.

"You can hear from my voice, I have done all the West Indian recipes and remedies, for those who are West Indian, especially Jamaicans. You know what I'm talking about. I eat the garlic, onion, the turmeric, the honey - the expensive one, the Manuka one - the ginger, the lime, the lemon, the rum.

"I've had all kind of soup - chicken foot soup, lamb neck soup, red peas, and my voice is still like this and then Rona will then turn round to you and say to you, 'You know what, on top of that bredrin, I'm not going to make you able to smell or taste.

"I mean, I can't even smell myself and I know some of you need to smell yourself. I just want to say to you, I'm here.

"It's been a rough couple of days and it's really about for you to get your health in order. Health is wealth, and I'm not just talking about catching that cheque. I just mean having that health so you can live at your optimum.

"You can continue creating memories, having life experience, spending time with loved ones as long as possible because Rona... Rona has me locked up in here like I'm the woman from Orange is the New Black!

"Rona has got me sleeping out here like someone with no ambition! Rona has got me here standing at the window, waving like a black kid that wants to play on a Sunday and her mum says, 'You're mad!' That's what Rona is doing to me!

"I mean, Rona has got you coughing so hard you're begging for a sponsorship from Tena Ladies!

"Rona will take you away from your family and you miss then even though you're in the yard with them. And I mean, some of you are living that life anyway, some of you are locked down in your room, in your laptop, in your phone to the point where you forget you've got family next door.

"Spend time with them because Rona won't miss that opportunity. I mean, Rona is acting like a player. Rona is going from that body to this body, making you think that it's not going to everybody but really it's spreading about in everybody and you're not the only one!

"Rona is out here like a Tyrone. Like I said, look after yourself. Not just because of Rona but just in general. Your health is your wealth."

She added: "I just want to say thank you for all your well wishes. Love you."

Judi's co-star Ruth Langsford commented beneath, saying: "Hope you’re feeling better soon….missed you SO much on @bbcstrictly !!"

While her partner Graziano commented simply: "love you my darling!"
