Ranvir was hugely apologetic to her partner Giovanni after they were sent home packing by the judges.
Speaking to Tess Daly, she said: ‘I’m just really sorry for him [Giovanni]. He’s worked so hard and been in so many finals that I’m really sorry I couldn’t do it for you. Sorry.’
‘You don’t have to be sorry at all,’ Giovanni responded: ‘We’ve both worked very hard, you’ve been an absolute dream to work with.
‘You are a true hero, your job at three o’clock in the morning then you come in the room and dance with me.
‘More than anything you’ve grown as a person and this for me is the most rewarding thing that I could ask for, so well done to you. Well done.’
