Strictly’s Ranvir spills on ‘secret support’ GMB co-star Piers has been giving

Strictly Come Dancing star Ranvir Singh has revealed that Good Morning Britain co-star Piers Morgan has been supporting her behind-the-scenes.

Ranvir, 43, and her professional partner Giovanni Pernice , 30, have taken the BBC dancing show by storm and she's explained that Piers has been "secretly supportive" off camera.

Piers, 55, has been backing her all the way and the ITV political correspondent couldn't be more thankful.

In a recent interview, Ranvir explained: "He's actually secretly incredibly supportive.

"He likes to gloat on air, but he’s been supportive privately.

"He's not a softie in real life, but he is who he is. He wants us all to do well, to be honest."

Piers isn't the only GMB star who's backed Ranvir since her Strictly debut last month.

She's been receiving tips from pals Charlotte Hawkins, who took part in the show in 2017, and Susanna Reid who took to the dance floor in 2013.

"There’s been lots of good advice from them all, basically just to throw yourself into it, give it everything you've got, and see where you go," Ranvir said.

Ranvir admitted that her on-air role as a journalist has helped her prepare for performing on live television.

She told The Sun: "I’ve never danced on live TV before, but Gio just tells me to forget about everyone else and focus on what we’re doing.

"To be honest, I love the pressure, and I think that probably does come from what I do in my day job, doesn't it? Everything is now or never.

"Most of my life in journalism has been about live television, so I suppose that is a real bonus.

"I'm happy about that, because I came with nothing else for Giovanni. This is my only offer to him, my ability to cope with live TV."

Ranvir and Giovanni topped the Strictly leaderboard last weekend with their stunning Foxtrot, scoring an impressive 27 out of 30.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am and Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One on Saturday at 7.10pm
