Strictly Come Dancing is gearing up for the 2020 series, and recently, images were released showing the celebrity contestants donned with fake tan and sequins. Ahead of the launch, which is set to air later this month, Good Morning Britain presenter, Ranvir Singh, has spoken out about being snubbed by her own family. 

Over the years, there have been many morning television presenters who have graced the dance floor. 

This year is the turn of Ranvir, who is GMB’s political editor and a new Loose Women host. 

Ahead of their professional partners being revealed, Ranvir has discussed how competitive she really is and whether she will be lifting the Glitterball Trophy in December.  

“No, I’m literally the least competitive person you’ve ever met,” Ranvir remarked. “It’s embarrassing!

“If I play Scrabble I’m like, ‘Show me your letter and I’ll help you get a really good word.’

“I literally want everyone to do really well for themselves. 

“I think I’m starting to realise that I may not be the perfect candidate for Strictly!” 

Ranvir stars alongside Jamie Laing, EastEnders’ Maisie Smith, and Olympic champion Nicola Adams OBE. 

Others who will feature are Caroline Quentin, Bill Bailey and BBC DJ Clara Amfo. 

So what does Ranvir think of her co-stars? 

“I am the least sporty person – I never played competitive sport[s] in my life, not once!” She said. 

“So it just makes me cry with laughter that I am now competing against an Olympic gold medal winning boxer.

“But on the other hand, the day after I was announced my niece literally spent about 25 minutes telling me how excited she was about Jamie Laing being in the show. 

“I was like ‘Alright, I get you love him!’

“It did hurt a little bit so I’m not sure she will vote for me!” She joked. 

“[But] it’s a fantastic line up.” 

As for the reaction Ranvir has received from family, friends, colleagues or fans, she said it has “been really lovely”. 

“My family have been super excited and my friends are literally beside themselves.

“Before the show is even on air it is spreading joy.” 

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday night with the Best Of on BBC One at 8pm.
