Judge Judy Sheindlin has been honoured with her own star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

Sheindlin, best known for her no-nonsense approach on television's courtroom show JUDGE JUDY, is the 2,304th star to be immortalised on the infamous strip, which includes her star neighbour SIDNEY POITIER - the first ever black man to win the Best Actor Oscar.

She says, "This was the best way to celebrate Valentine's Day. Can you think of a topper?

"What am I going to do next year to top this?"

Judge Judy first aired in 1996 and is now American television's most watched courtroom show.
