Judi Love says ‘it’s hard’ being recognised in public as fans mistake her for Alison Hammond


Judi Love is best known for her work as a stand-up comedienne, being a panellist on ITV’s Loose Women and for competing on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

However, not everyone is so quick to make the link when bumping into the star in public, and Judi herself has revealed she’s found herself in some very awkward situations.

Whilst performing at Absolute Radio’s Teenage Cancer Trust event at the London Palladium, Judi had the crowd roaring as she explained “it’s hard” being recognised in public as fans often get it wrong.

During the Sunday, November 21 gig, the 41 year old revealed that: “I get recognised a bit, sometimes I get recognised, this woman recognised me the other day.”

She added that “it’s hard though,” as her “ego takes over” when people come up to her and they can’t quite place where they know her from.

She told the audience: “They’ll ask ‘are you..? are you..?’ and I was like ‘it’s me’.

“So I was like ‘yes, it’s me, comedian’, and she was like ‘no that’s not where I know you from’, so I said ‘ah, it’s okay, maybe it’s Loose Women?’ and she was like ‘oh no no no’.”

Judi continued: “So I was like ‘well maybe it’s-‘ and she said ‘oh I know where I know you from, me and you was in the queue for the benefits agent a few years back!’, and I said ‘no no no, it must be from Strictly’.”

The star explained that the woman then told her: “Oh yes Strictly, oh my gosh I’m so sorry, I shoulda know, I knew it was you Alison!”

Speaking about being mistaken for her pal Alison Hammond, 46, Judi said: “Look, now I love my Alison, but like, could I, could you just confuse me for Oprah? I want Oprah, man!”

The hilarious stand-up star continued to tell the audience about a recent trip to the Gynae she had, saying: “The other day I was at the gynae, you gotta get those checks done.

“I went private, cause the money’s stacking up now, and yano before you go, you make sure everything’s neat and tidy down there.”

Judi had the audience in fits of laughter as she mocked getting her lady bits waxed, before continuing: “So, cause it was private, I was lying there and the nurse comes in first to check, he came over, very nice hands!

“Then he goes to me: ‘oh beautiful American Smooth’, and I said to him ‘oh thanks babe I went to this new girl in Streatham called Lucinda, I can give her details to your missus,’

“And he says ‘oh no love, I’m talking about your American Smooth on Strictly.”

Judi had an incredible evening performing at the charity event, and donned a trendy blue blazer paired with a slogan T shirt, leather leggings and some Nike trainers.

The mum of two posted numerous times about the event on her Instagram account.

She captioned the image: “About last night! @thelondonpalladium“, attracting over a thousand likes.

Her Strictly pro partner Graziano commented below the snap, writing: “yeah!” along with an emoji of a heart, and an audience member wrote: “You were hilarious”.
