Comedian Judi Love wants to expand her acting career and is hoping to nab a role in ‘Line of Duty’.
The 41-year-old stand-up wants to land more "serious" acting gigs after loving her role as Chidi in the BBC drama ‘Noughts + Crosses’, and she has put it out into the world that she'd love to join the cast of the award-winning cop drama, and is even keen to make it onto the big screen.
Writing in her OK! Magazine column, she said: "Watching myself on-screen for the debut episode of the BBC’s 'Noughts + Crosses' last week was a surreal experience, but it’s inspired me to delve further into serious acting.
“Being a comedian, you rarely get to show that side of yourself to the world – but now I’m itching for my next big action movie! Or, ‘Line of Duty’ producers, you know where to find me!.”
The 2021 'Strictly Come Dancing' contestant is currently in Glasgow filming the second series of 'Noughts + Crosses'.
She added: “I absolutely adored being a part of the first series and I’m already having a double amount of fun the second time around.
“The cast is great and I had a brilliant time with Richard Madeley – he is a legend.”
Elsewhere, the ‘Loose Woman’ star - who has been on the panel since 2020 - spoke about the return of fellow panellist Brenda Edwards, who took a break from the show following the tragic passing of her son Jamal, and hailed her for the work she does to keep the 31-year-old music entrepreneur's memory alive.
Judi said: “My dear friend Brenda Edwards re-joined ‘Loose Women’ panel last week for the first time since the tragic death of her son, music entrepreneur Jamal.
“I am truly inspired by the passion she exudes for the Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust, which pledges to keep her son’s legacy alive by targeting homelessness, helping struggling youngsters to achieve working apprenticeships and providing mental health support.”
The founder of SB.TV., the platform that helped launch the careers of the likes of Ed Sheeran and Jessie J, was found dead by his mother on 20 February. Jamal had suffered a sudden heart attack after coming home late from a DJ set.
