GMB’s Ranvir Singh felt ‘flat’ after Strictly exit despite huge public support

Good Morning Britain beauty Ranvir Singh has admitted she felt flat when her Strictly Come Dancing experience came to an end.

The 43-year-old ITV political editor took part in the latest series of the BBC dancing show last year and wowed viewers with her stunning moves.

Ranvir and her professional dance partner Giovanni Bernice impressed the judging panel with their performances and the pair reached the semi-final of the competition.

Opening up on life after Strictly on the ITV News Politics Podcast Calling Peston, the broadcaster explained: "Actually coming out of it for that first, well, the second week out of it, I did feel quite flat and I couldn't shake it off.

"It was a very strange experience really, because you think coming out of it, you'd feel really on a high and really happy.

"And I did quite well and all of that, but I think nothing quite matches the buzz of it."

"You're in the centre of the world when you're on Strictly because, you know, 11 million people watched every Saturday and every Sunday, 11 million people and in this day and age on terrestrial TV, that's unheard of, isn't it?"

Ranvir was flooded with praise throughout the competition and made vast improvements each week on the show.

Her Good Morning Britain co-stars including Piers Morgan, Susanna Reid and Kate Garraway all backed Ranvir to win the show and Strictly fans were left gobsmacked when Ranvir and Giovanni didn't make it through to the final.

Ranvir went on to reveal that her journey to becoming the queen of the ballroom wasn’t the easiest as she recalled feeling very "exposed" whilst taking part.

She told Robert Peston: "If you're a reality star, if you're a pop star, if you're anything else, you're used to talking about yourself, but as journalists, the last people we want to talk about is ourselves."

"It's extremely exposing. And also I had no skill or tools to mask it.

"It was my first ever experience of having to talk about myself each and every day into camera.

"So I have no filter and I think that's what was a bit odd, but also in the end, probably one of the most impactful things – I couldn't filter it."

Ranvir explained how she found going from a job to being on Strictly "weird" due to it "stripping everything away."

She said of the process: "I just treated it as work. Like genuinely treated going on Strictly as 'Oh, it's another job'. Like I've just got to go in there and do that task."

"It was just so weird. It just stripped everything away because I wasn't in control of that world.

“You're in the dancer's world. And the dancer's world is a very, very peculiar land. It's a foreign place, you know, none of the rules apply. It's all very different."
