Yesterday, Elberry left a comment asking if Judy has a blog. I’ve been waiting for somebody to ask this obvious question, though my answer won’t surprise you: no she doesn’t. She has neither the time nor the inclination.
Busy with the show for most of the week, Judy cherishes her privacy over anything else. If it weren’t for the cottage we’ve managed to keep a secret outside Brighton, she’d never get away from the clamour of fans ringing her mobile (0845 076 0191). She also likes to keep her weekday schedule unknown to the public, who would only follow her around Harrods on her regular 10.30 shopping spree every Friday morning. I think this is why she doesn’t like people to know that, being a country girl, she was brought up to have a passion for Lincoln Longwool sheep. That's why she’ll be attending the East Anglia Agriculture Show this weekend.
It is Friday and I’m in a rush to buy some new Wellingtons ready for the show. So here are some more of the Judy facts she likes to keep secret. She was a breaststroke finalists in the 1972 UK Championships. She has also swum the English Channel five times and holds the record for completing a double crossing. Judy’s favourite food are pickled gherkins which she often eats when she’s curled up in bed at night. She is an excellent singer and can sustain a perfect C sharp for twenty two seconds. It’s common knowledge that during Granada New’s 1981 charity campaign on behalf of orphaned children, Judy stood in a bucket of lime jelly for forty eight hours . Less well known is the fact that her feet still have a green tint which has to be covered by makeup before she’ll go on air.
