Hannah Waddingham is getting competitive with Jennifer Hudson over their mutual crush.
In a sneak preview for Thursday’s episode of “The Jennifer Hudson Show”, the “Hocus Pocus 2” actress appears during the debut week of Hudson’s new talk show where they dish about their crush on Tom Jones, and their love for “And Just Like That…” star Sarah Jessica Parker.
“I don’t care how la-di-da you are, and the fact that you know him already,” she joked. “If it came to it, I would rugby-tackle you to the floor for him.”
Instead of reacting to the taunt, Hudson instead turned the conversation to what they liked about the 82-year-old musician.
“Oh, where do you start?” Waddingham replied. “I mean he is so hot even though he is an octogenarian. So hot.”
She went on to lavish praise for Hudson’s singing when she duets with Jones.
“When you two sing? I am an absolute mess,” she praised. “Seriously, it’s just like clash of the titans.”
Taking her turn to sing his praises, Hudson admired the man’s musical repertoire.
“He knows like every song there is. Every song, and every person – and just to sit and listen to him speak,” she said. “And then he’s got this swag. Like no other, that’s what I love about him.”
The two then playfully turned to the camera to address Jones.
“We’re both available,” teased Waddingham.
The two also spoke on their love for other stars – in particular, Waddingham’s “Hocus Pocus 2” co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy.
“They asked me to come to set to meet them, and I was like ‘oh no no no, oh no no no, they’re probably busy!’ and they went ‘no, we’d like her to come down,'” recalled the actress of their first meeting. “And I sat there like a competition winner, just going–” she then made a face.
In a hilarious moment, when Waddingham met the three, she wanted to try pulling on Parker’s prosthetic nose.
“It was unbelievable,” she concluded. “Sitting with those three women and any of them knowing who the hell I was, was a shock.”
Waddingham joins other esteemed guests like Simon Cowell, Mickey Guyton, and Magic Johnson to usher in the singer’s new show, which debuted on Monday.
