Strictly’s Ranvir Singh gushes over Giovanni Pernice as romance rumours swirl

Ranvir Singh has heaped praise on her Strictly Come Dancing pro partner Giovanni Pernice again, after sparking romance rumours with previous compliments.

The Good Morning Britain star, 43, spoke of the Strictly favourite, 30, and how he's helped boost her confidence on the show.

"I've never danced on live TV before, but Gio just tells me to forget about everyone else and focus on what we're doing," she told The Sun.

"To be honest, I love the pressure, and I think that probably does come from what I do in my day job, doesn't it? Everything is now or never."

The journalist has plenty of experience with live television, which she noted was "a real bonus".

She said: "I'm happy about that, because I came with nothing else for Giovanni. This is my only offer to him, my ability to cope with live TV.

"In that sense, at least for him, he can trust me that I can hopefully deliver what we've tried to achieve in the last week."

It's not the first time Ranvir has spoken highly of her Italian partner, complimenting him in an Instagram post over the weekend.

Sharing a photo of them in the 1960s garb for Strictly's Movie Week, Ranvir said: "Giovanni literally gets out of bed and looks like that [eye-roll emoji] and that's not even a joke [flame emoji]."

Viewers have sensed their incredible connection on the show, which no doubt helped them to top the leaderboard over the weekend.

Ranvir and Giovanni scored 27 for their Foxtrot to Love You I Do from the movie Dreamgirls, with a score of nine from each of the three judges.

Strictly fans now think there could be a romance blossoming behind-the-scenes for the dancing duo.

One tweeted: "You were amazing Ranvir! You and Giovanni have such a connection, is this the 'Strictly Curse' coming into play again?"

Another tweeted Piers Morgan, asking: "Has Ranvir got the Strictly Curse with Giovanni Piers? See them both at the end by Claudia, can't keep their hands off each other, cuddles, smiles, kisses? Makes you wonder if something is blossoming."

And a third added: "Is it wrong that I want Ranvir and Gio to go through the Strictly Curse? What? I ship it."
