Judi Love to front her own food and travel series for ITV1

The five-part series will follow the popular comedian and Loose Women favourite as she travels to five different destinations via a luxury yacht.

Judi Love's Culinary Cruise will follow Judi Love as she travels in a luxury yacht named Emerald Azzurra to five different destinations, taking in all the culture and scenery that each destination has to offer before grabbing some local ingredients and heading back onto the ship to cook some fabulous local dishes for the guests onboard.

The self-confessed foodie will combine her love of fun and adventure with her interest in local cuisine whilst turning her hand to making a daily delicious dish, famous at each of the destinations en-route. 

Produced by Title Role and funded by Emerald Cruises, the series will see Judi setting sail from Kotor in Montenegro, before travelling to Parga, Kerkira, and Kefalonia and then finishing in the popular Greek town of Itea. 

Alongside being a regular face on ITV’s panel show Loose Women, Judi showed off her love of food and cooking skills when she was crowned champion of MasterChef’s 2021 Christmas special after serving up a winning Jamaican inspired feast

Hoping to expand her repertoire, Judi Love said “I am so excited to be setting sail on this new adventure with ITV. Growing up within a Jamaican family, food was always at the heart of any function and occasion. So I’m truly excited to experience the culture, people and food of the beautiful Mediterranean.”


“I’m looking forward to exploring all of the different destinations as food has such a way of telling a story for many, especially in the Mediterranean where it’s about sharing love, traditions and identity.”


“I have always loved watching loved ones cook and I truly love serving up a hearty plate of food for my family and friends. So I’m thrilled to be able to embrace this with ITV and the audience at home… I can’t wait to get started.” 

Made by Title Role, Judi Love's Culinary Cruise will be produced by Helen Tonge and directed by Lizzie Gill.

Speaking about the new show, Leanne Clarke, Assistant Commissioner, Entertainment & Daytime ITV said “It’s all hands on deck for this exciting new series with ITV favourite, Judi Love. The series is warm and fun filled with adventure and good food at its heart which will appeal to so many of our viewers.”

To which Emerald Cruises’ managing director, sales and marketing, Nichola Absalom added “We are thrilled to host Judi Love on board Emerald Azzurra to discover the spectacular local cuisine and sail to some of the region’s smaller ports on our 100 passenger yacht. This industry-leading luxury yacht – complete with a suite of watersport toys, Marina Platform for swim stops and Wellness Deck, is the ideal base from which to showcase this beautiful part of the world, and create some mouth-watering local dishes.”
