She proved she was down with the kids when she learnt to rap with grime MC Lethal Bizzle back in 2017.

Kicking things off with Jason Derulo’s Let me Take you Dancing, the national treasure revealed: ‘I like Jason Derulo.’

Not a fan: Judi took umbrage with the Jonas Brothers’ song Sucker when she failed to guess the next lyrics correctly
As they both contorted in peals of laughter Judi attempted to defend her poetic but incorrect response.
‘That’s actually quite a good line,’ she said.
Next, the star’s grandson quizzed her on Ed Sheeran’s hit song Castle on the Hill.
‘You better get this one right,’ her relative warned before he read out the line ‘singing to Tiny Dancer…’
‘…Tiny Dancer sings to me,’ responded Judi before giving a deadpan side-eye to the camera.
And the Dame took umbrage with the final song in the game, Sucker by the Jonas Brothers.
Viral sensation: Her grandson revealed the lyrics were: ‘I’m a sucker for you. You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly,’ she retorted: ‘That doesn’t rhyme!’
When her grandson revealed the correct lyrics were: ‘I’m a sucker for you. You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly,’ she retorted: ‘That doesn’t rhyme!’ as her grandson looked on in exasperation.
Viewers on TikTok went wild for the national treasure: ‘You can’t just casually put Dame Judi on my For You Page like this I need to prepare,’ said one.
‘If Dame Judi Dench says it doesn’t rhyme then IT DOESN’T RHYME SAM,’ commented another.
Family: Dame Judi and her grandson are very close and were pictured together at the Olivier Awards in London in 2016
Sam has long been invested in his grandmother’s knowledge of modern music.
In 2012, when Judi was asked by Radio 1 if she’d heard of the grime MC Lethal Bizzle after he coined the term ‘Dench’ to mean ‘cool’, she told Greg James: ‘My grandson…he told me about it, Sammy.’
And later in 2017, the esteemed thespian became the rapper’s unlikely sidekick as she tried her hand at grime to perform his hit single Pow for LADbible.
