Ranvir and Giovanni joined Claudia Winkleman after getting a mixed reception from the judges, with Craig Revel-Horwood criticising Ranvir’s footwork while Shirley Ballas praised her frame.
Before the judges’ scores were in, Claudia played the video message from Kate to Ranvir, celebrating her being in the semi-final of the show.
Ranvir was blown away to get the message from Kate, appreciating that her presenter pal had taken the time to wish her luck despite going through a very difficult year herself, with husband Derek Draper still battling the after-effects of coronavirus in hospital.
Viewers also loved seeing Kate pop up on screen, tweeting: ‘Kate Garraway going through hell but still thinking of Ranvir Singh’ and ‘Kate Garraway’s message to Ranvir on strictly this week, I cannottttttt’.
Others added: ‘That says a lot about Kate Garraway as a person to make time for Ranvir given what she’s going through with her husband’s recovery from Covid’.
Each of the couples on Strictly will perform two dances to fight for their place in next week’s final, with one being voted off in Sunday’s show.
