It’s the Strictly Come Dancing 2020 semi-final tonight, and the contestants will be giving it their all to earn a spot in the final.
As the remaining stars continue to cha cha challenge themselves, they keep on improving, including TV presenter Ranvir Singh and partner Giovanni Pernice.
Ranvir has done well so far, considering she was worried about joining, saying about her appearance on the show: ‘Hopefully after the first dance I will feel exhilarated rather than sick!’
But what does Ranvir Singh do when she isn’t cutting shapes on Saturday nights, and who was she married to?
Who is Ranvir Singh?
Ranvir Singh is a journalist and TV presenter from Lancashire, England.
Ranvir was educated at Kirkham Grammar School and went on to graduate from the University of Lancaster with a degree in English and Philosophy.
She then underwent a postgraduate qualification in journalism at the School of Journalism in Preston.
Singh joined BBC Radio Lancashire in 2002, initially on work experience before being given a six-month contract.
She worked hard and quickly moved up the ranks and landed a spot as co-presenter on North West Tonight in 2007.
Ranvir then joined ITV breakfast programme Daybreak, followed by a stint on This Morning, before finally ending up on Good Morning Britain in 2014.
Not only has Ranvir been waking up the UK for years on various breakfast news programmes, but she has also won the nation’s hearts with appearances on shows such as Loose Women and Lorraine – where she comes across as witty and intelligent.
She has also competed on All Star Family Fortunes, The Chase, and University Challenge.
How old is Ranvir Singh?
Ranvir Singh was born on August 11, 1977 making her 43-years-old.
She has an eight year old son called Tushaan.
Who was Ranvir Singh’s husband?
Ranvir married Ranjeet Dehal in 2012, and the pair share their son Tushaan together.
Ranvir tends to keep her private life out of the public eye, however it appears that she has split from Ranjeet.
When the news that Ranvir was competing on Strictly 2020 was announced, she told GMB viewers that she wouldn’t mind being struck down by the Strictly curse, saying: ‘Well, I am single!’
While it is not exactly clear when and why Ranvir and Rajeet split up, Ranvir has hinted in the past that she found something on her husband’s phone that she didn’t like.
On an episode of GMB in 2019, Ranvir and co-host Ben Shephard were discussing whether or not you should look at your partner’s phone.
Ranvir admitted: ‘I have looked at it, once.’
To which Ben replied: ‘Is that why you are no longer together?’
Ranvir seemed to freeze, before replying: ‘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.
‘Should we end that conversation there?’
Is Ranvir Singh dating Giovanni Pernice?
Rumours have circulated that Ranvir is dating her dance partner Giovanni, after he said ‘I love you’ to Ranvir on the show.
Viewers are convinced that there is chemistry between the dancing duo.
However, the pair have both dismissed the rumours on several occasions.
The Strictly Come Dancing semi-final airs tonight on BBC One at 7pm.
