The Good Morning Britain star and her professional partner have been smashing their performances every single week since this year’s competition began, leaving the judges – and viewers – obsessed with their ‘chemistry’.
Chatting to Metro.co.uk about the speculation, Jamie Laing offered his thoughts on what’s actually going on between his co-stars.
Laughing at the rumours, the 32-year-old cackled: ‘I think Giovanni fancies Ranvir, that’s what I think.
‘I am in love with Giovanni and I’m in love with Ranvir, so I’d be jealous of either of them if they started hooking up with each other.
‘I just think they’re incredible friends, they’re amazing partners. You have to remember that they’re putting on a performance. When you’re putting on a performance, it’s about making people believe it.
‘If people at home are believing they’re in a relationship, then they’re doing their amazing job together, that’s incredible.
‘They’re such a beautiful partnership, it’s amazing.’
Giovanni and Ranvir have been lighting up the dance floor with their appearances – soaring to the top half of the leaderboard.
Speculation of a secret backstage romance has ramped up over the last few weeks, following a video of the dancer telling the ITV star that he ‘loved’ her as ‘their song’ played out.
However, Ranvir has laughed off all the rumours, insisting there is nothing happening between the pair.
Appearing on Good Morning Britain, she was questioned over their bond by Piers Morgan, to which she replied: ‘There’s nothing I want to report at all actually, thank you very much.’
She was also forced to confirm that they won’t be spending the Christmas period together.
‘No , I’ll be spending it with the main man in my life, my eight-year-old son,’ she insisted.
‘That’s who has my heart all of the time.’
So that’s that, then.
Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday, at 7pm, on BBC One.
