Ranvir Singh wears slippers to host GMB as Strictly rehearsals take their toll

Television presenter Ranvir Singh was back in the Good Morning Britain studio on Wednesday for the first time since topping the Strictly Come Dancing leaderboard on Saturday night.

The 43-year-old ITV political correspondent is a contestant on the latest series of the BBC dancing competition.

Ranvir and her partner Giovanni Pernice scored a whooping 27 out of 30 with their Foxtrot to a Jennifer Hudson hit from the film Dreamgrirls.

GMB weather presenter Laura Tobin quizzed pal Ranvir on the latest edition on ITV breakfast show about her Strictly experience so far and quickly pointed out her change of footwear.

Laura, 38, said: "Congratulations Ranvir, you did amazing on the weekend.

"You looked stunning and you've got slippers on today."

Ranvir , who presented the first 30 minutes of GMB, added: "Yes, I'm getting fitted for my Latin shoes later on."

As the camera panned to her feet, the GMB joked: "No one wants to see that."

It comes just weeks after Ranvir was forced to host GMB with one of her feet in an bucket of icy water.

Ranvir opened up about scoring the highest score of the series so far on GMB during Monday's show.

Speaking a video link, Ranvir said: "It was a total shock, I wasn’t expecting that at all.

"It doesn’t seem realistic to me. The people who get nines are always amazing. How did I get nines? It’s mad!"

Host Piers Morgan suggested Ranvir could be the first Good Morning Britain star to take home the glitterball trophy after Susanna Reid and Charlotte Hawkins both took part in previous series.

Ranvir played down her recent success and insisted: "It's only week four, let's hold our horses!"

The TV host added that her dance partner, 30, has been pushing her to try her hardest, saying: 'It’s down to Giovanni, he pushes me really hard. It’s quite overwhelming really.

"I’m doing my best and he says, 'I want more from you'.

" He always wants a little bit more. I’ve nothing to compare it to but I’m just trying my hardest."

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am
