Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh made an incredible first impression on the judges in the opening week of BBC’s Strictly.
The 43-year-old and her professional partner, Giovanni Pernice, performed a sultry Paso Doble to Beyoncé’s End of Time and were awarded a whopping 21 points.
And now the single mum is hoping her ballroom improvements will continue to wow the judges and as she faces the public vote.
Several of Ranvir’s GMB co-stars – including Kate Garraway – have already taken to the Strictly dance floor and have been giving her tips in the hopes of winning the Glitterball trophy, The Mirror reports.
And cheering Ranvir on from the sidelines is her number one fan – her eight-year-old son Tushaan.
Ranvir is a single-mum to her little boy following the breakdown of her marriage to his father, and her ex-husband, Ranjeet Singh Dehal.
The couple married in 2012 but are believed to have split up some time ago with the ITV presenter keeping her personal life out of the limelight.
She revealed she was single when it was announced she would be appearing on the 2020 series of Strictly.
Ranvir seemed to suggest that she had found something incriminating on a partner’s phone when discussing whether you should check your partner’s device with her co-host Ben Shephard.
Ranvir admitted she had looked at a partner’s phone “once” before Ben asked if that’s why they were no longer together.
The award-winning political editor said: “I can’t answer that question but I have always thought that if you ever feel you need to do that then the relationship is over because you obviously don’t trust that person.”
Ranvir has always refused to discuss the reasons behind the marriage breakdown for the sake of her young son.
She told Woman and Home: “I keep my private life private, mainly to protect Tushaan.”
The devoted mum and her little boy have an extremely close relationship because it’s just the two of them at home, she says.
However, she said she does have one over-riding fear when it comes to being a single mum.
Ranvir explained: “I do get quite tearful sometimes and I worry he’s going to hate me when he grows up because I was never there.”
The GM host also confessed her feelings of “guilt” because she couldn’t be there to take her son to school due to her gruelling early morning schedule.
- Ranvir will be competing in Strictly Come Dancing with Giovanni at 7:10pm tonight.
