Judi Love’s unusual hack for banishing body odour during the soaring temperatures has come as a big surprise to many. The Loose Women star swapped the panel for the Good Morning Britain studio this week to chat about her new stand-up show, Work in Progress.
However, as expected, the conversation soon turned to the weather and the heatwave currently being experienced across the country as temperatures hit new records. And it turns out Judi was prepared as she was quizzed on her way of dealing with body odour during the heat.
To demonstrate how she keeps herself smelling fresh during the sweaty days and nights many of us are currently experiencing, Judi was given a bowl of sweet potatoes and some deodorant.
Noticing the items in front of Judi, host Ranvir Singh said: “Now most people have a croissant for breakfast, but you appear to have brought a bowl full of sweet potato and some deodorant?” to which Judi replied: “For those who are going out into the sun, please wear your deodorant because it’s hard for us, especially when we’re in close proximity with each other.”
“And this sweet potato, you can boil it, make it cool and put it under your armpit if you’ve got an odour issue,” she continued. “What?!” a shocked Ranvir remarked before her confused co-host Ed Balls asked: “And have those been under your armpits yet or…?”
“No!” Judi replied before explaining: “You have to boil it, mash it, let it cool a little bit, just put it under your armpit and let it draw out the stench!” She then went on to say it’s an “old school method” to which Ranvir commented: “Can I just say, it’s an education Judi. Everything you say is an education, it’s a joy to have you in.”
And it wasn’t just the hosts who appeared surprised as GMB viewers flocked to social media to have their say. @prescott1962 tweeted: “#GMB did Judi Love just recommend putting mashed sweet potato under your arm pits to help with body odour???” @Chizzley2 wrote: “What ????? Don’t forget to put sweet spuds under your armpits…”
@Verona79708347 complained: “Judi Love talking a load of! She could be responsible for people with odour issues ending up in A&E with burns in their armpits, caused by hot sweet potato!”
