Strictly celebrities reveal film favourites ahead of performances on weekend

TV presenter AJ Odudu said she would pick her fellow actor Judi Love for Strictly Come Dancing to play in a biopic.

The two will both hit the dance floor on Saturday night to perform movie-themed routines for Movie Week.

Odudu, 33, who topped the list with 65 points after the results of the first two live shows were merged, will perform an American Smooth with dance partner Kai Widdrington to Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing from The Bodyguard.

When asked who she would like to play in a film about her life, Odudu said: “Judi Love, it has to be Judi! She is loud, she has a lot of energy, she doesn’t take herself too seriously.

“I just think that’s what life is about. Life is too short not to just smile! “

For her dream film role, she said she would love to play Shrek or Olaf from Frozen and added, “My nieces love her!”

TV presenter Love said she would like Whoopi Goldberg to play her in a movie and, conversely, would love to play Goldberg’s classic character in Sister Act, Deloris Van Cartier.

She said, “When I saw the movie as a kid, I just felt like it was me! I could picture myself putting on a nun’s hat and people wondering if I was really a nun!

“The way she pulled the other nuns and the children out of their comfort zone, that’s what I’ll do.”

The Loose Women star added that Sister Act was her favorite movie, saying, “It’s timeless, you can watch it with kids and adults, it’s just a great family movie that feels good and brings everyone together.”

Love and her dance partner Graziano Di Prima will perform a Charleston to When You’re Good To Mama by Queen Latifah and Taye Diggs from Chicago.

Actor Greg Wise will appear on stage as 007 on Saturday while he dances the Paso Doble to the James Bond title with partner Karen Hauer.

When discussing which character he would most like to play, he said, “It has to be James Bond because you’re in a nice tuxedo and it’s James Bond!”

However, he admitted that his favorite film was Sense And Sensibility, in which he played John Willoughby, since it was there that he met his future wife, Emma Thompson.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 6.45pm on BBC One.
