    After being diagnosed with macular degeneration in 2012, Judi has been battling with ever-worsening eyesight. But, rather than let it mark the end of her career, she took an entirely different approach.

    “I can’t turn things down,” she confessed. “If I’m offered a job, I always do it, because I think it’s the last job I’m going to be asked to do.”

    While Judi described certain aspects of her degenerating health as “traumatic”, she’ll always looks for the positive.

    “I can only really see who someone is when I’m six inches away now. I have to get very close to people, and I mean extremely close – which is handy with the fellas,” she previously joked. “Wonderful, really. And you have to find a silver lining, don’t you?”

    Despite her failing eyesight, Judi still finds ways to go about daily life. She explained, “It’s not like suddenly going blind in one go. You do it gradually, so gradually you somehow find a way of learning.”
