    Ranvir Singh became a household name when she made her Strictly Come Dancing debut in 2020.

    The Good Morning Britain presenter, 45, was partnered with Giovanni Pernice on the BBC dance show.

    Making it to the semi-final stage, Ranvir finished in fifth place in the series which was eventually won by comedian Bill Bailey and his dance partner Oti Mabuse.

    Ranvir and Giovanni denied Strictly curse rumours during their partnership and as the newsreader celebrates two years with her toyboy beau, Daily Star takes a look inside her romance journey.

    Strictly curse rumours

    Following Ranvir's Strictly debut, fans were quick to point out the chemistry between her and her dance partner Giovanni.

    While fans praised the pair's steamy dance numbers, Ranvir was quick to shut down rumours of a romance between herself and Giovanni.

    She said at the time: "We both find the idea that we might get hit by the curse very funny – he is a 30-year-old man!”

    Giovanni, 32, also denied claims that the pair had embarked on an intimate relationship.

    Speaking last year, the Italian native told Entertainment Daily: "No, no, no, no, no.

    "Again, I'm single. Absolutely there's no way. We are very, very good friends.

    "If people at home or the judges think you have a great connection, then it means my job – what I'm doing – is perfect. We deliver exactly what the dances require.

    "Remember, we are actors."

    Marriage split

    When Ranvir joined Strictly in 2020, she was officially single – having recently separated from her political editor husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal.

    The pair tied the knot and welcomed a son Tushaan together in 2012 but split a few years ago.

    While the broadcaster has kept largely silent on her marriage breakdown since, Ranvir did hint that she found something incriminating on her husband's phone during a live GMB appearance in April 2019.

    During a debate on checking partner's phones with her co-star Ben Shephard, Ranvir sensationally revealed: "I found something that needed addressing.

    "So I would say you think you don’t need to do it until you do."

    Age-gap romance

    Despite her insistence that Giovanni was too young to date, Ranvir shocked fans when she went public with an even younger Strictly star.

    The broadcaster confirmed her romance with Strictly production secretary Louis Church, 27, in December last year.

    Louis is 18 years younger than the ITV star and Ranvir recently revealed their relationship brings her "complete joy".

    She told The Sun's Fabulous Magazine: "When I was 27, I was probably a lot more immature than Louis is.

    "There are things that he is better at than I am in terms of just being a good human being and I’m learning from him. So, to me, it's a complete joy."
