Strictly's Ranvir Singh admits she's an 'emotional wreck' and couldn't stop crying as she watched her performance back

STRICTLY Come Dancing's Ranvir Singh admitted that she is an "emotional wreck" and couldn't stop crying as she watched Saturday's performance back.

The 43-year-old star was the talk of today's Good Morning Britain, with her "proud" friends sharing how impressed they were with her fancy footwork before she appeared on the show via video call.

Ranvir and her professional partner Giovanni Pernice performed in front of the judges for the first time during the weekend's first live show of the series.

She blew away judges and viewers alike with her moves, and Ranvir revealed that she found the entire experience overwhelming as she phoned into the breakfast show.

Appearing in a car as she made her way to rehearsals, the show's political correspondent explained: "I watched the show back yesterday morning and honestly I was a bit of an emotional wreck.

"I cried the whole way through, I don't know why – Caroline Quentin cried in her VT and that was it, I just wept all the way through."

Earlier in Good Morning Britain, Richard Arnold couldn't hide his pride as he discussed Ranvir's performance with his co-stars.

He told viewers: "This was essential viewing; tied third top of the leader board in week one.

"I spoke to her on Sunday, God bless her, and she said she was watching the programme back and she was in tears."

Addressing his and co-host Charlotte Hawkins' past stints on Strictly, Richard continued: "You and I were probably the same, watching ourselves back, probably more relieved that it was over in week one, right?

"But the girl did good, talk about shaking what her mama gave her."

Charlotte agreed: "And that's a hard dance to start off on week one, to go straight into the Pasodoble – look at her go!"

Richard concluded: "She absolutely tore it up, we couldn't be more proud.

"Straight 7s – that is phenomenal for week one, she's in the full thrust of it and she's doing an amazing job."

Kate Garraway was among Ranvir's famous pals to support her on the night, taking to Instagram at the time to share her pride.

The mother-of-two posted a snap of Ranvir on her TV, writing in the caption: "OMG – she was amazing !!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥@bbcstrictly @ranvirtv".

Kate knows the challenges of Strictly all too well, having competed on the show back in 2007, where she and Anton du Beke finished 8th out of the 14 couples.

Meanwhile, fans expressed their shock at seeing Ranvir all glammed up in her dazzling evening dress, with GMB's political correspondent normally seen wrapped up warm in a waterproof coat as she stands outside parliament on Good Morning Britain.

Viewers took to Twitter to share their reaction to her transformation, with one writing: "I almost didn't recognise Ranvir there, she looks bloody amazing!"

Ranvir previously spoke about her nerves as she prepared for the live show.

She hinted at trouble ahead with Giovanni as she admitted he is a "fiery Italian" and that she is a "bit scared of him".

Ranvir also confessed to a "meltdown" and storming out of rehearsals as she refused to speak to the pro.
