Piers Morgan strictly come dancing

Piers Morgan spoke about Good Morning Britain co-star Ranvir Singh’s upcoming appearance on Strictly Come Dancing this morning.

Good Morning Britain star Ranvir Singh is set to appear on the new series of BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing and earlier today she chatted about the appearance with co-presenters Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid.

After the star’s Strictly look was unveiled, the Good Morning Britain team commented on Ranvir’s ballroom dancing look, showering the presenter with compliments.

“Can we just say Ranvir, you’re looking absolutely fabulous,” said Susanna complimented, before Piers Morgan joined the conversation, quipping, “Can we not objectify Ranvir in the workplace please?”.

Susanna then made a prediction on how well she thinks co-star Ranvir will do in the ballroom dancing competition, adding, “16/1. I think that’s a cheeky little bet actually”.

Piers then turned the charm onto his co-star, making Ranvir blush when he commented on her Strictly Come Dancing outfit, saying, “Am I allowed to say you look a bit slinkier? That’s the most covered up you’re going to be all series. It’s going to get shorter and lower.”

Ranvir then joked that she had asked the production team to give her outfits that were more covered up, adding, “I said I want more sleeve, below the knee,” before Piers chimed in with some humorous tips for Ranvir when she takes part in the show.

“Here’s my warm advice to get through the early rounds is, more flesh, more votes,” he joked. “Simple rule, honestly. I can’t speak for the male species but, more flesh.”

He then added in a joke about other fellow Good Morning Britain co-star Richard Arnold, who took part in the BBC ballroom dancing competition back in 2012 when he partnered up with professional dancer Erin Boag before being eliminated in week seven, quipping, “In Richard Arnold’s case it was too much flesh”.

We can’t wait to see Ranvir in Strictly in less than two weeks time!

Aleesha has worked for woman&home since 2019, when she joined the team as their digital news writer. A year on the news team gained her quick and reactive writing skills and a love for breaking stories, invaluable insight into where to get the best lifestyle releases first, an AOP awards nomination and the nickname ‘crazy watch lady’ after she became so obsessed with the royals that she followed breaking news alerts on her Apple Watch.


Before joining the woman&home team, Aleesha wrote for their sister site GoodtoKnow, where she covered celebrity news, health advice and where to snap up the cheapest lifestyle buys. With a background in beauty, Aleesha has also written for Stylist and Women’s Health where she developed an understanding into what makes a stellar product and which brands are worth paying attention to. She never leaves the house without a slick of lip balm and a good slathering of SPF, cannot live without an eyelash curler by her side and is always on the hunt for new lipsticks to add to her ‘Lipstick of the Day’ Instagram story highlight (and color-coordinated collection).

But it’s not just beauty buys Aleesha can help you with. Social media savviness, strong PR relationships and a need to stay in the know mean she’s all about the latest fashions, clever gadgets and reliable lifestyle buys too. She loves indulging in an interior craze (with a bedroom drowned in prints, plants and pink), is a regular visitor to the Missoma and Edge of Ember 'New In' pages and can’t resist the allure of a kitchen gadget—just ask her three coffee machines.

When she’s not playing around with new products and testing anything she can get her hands on, Aleesha spends most of her time with her head in a current bestseller, catching up on the latest Netflix craze with her sister, trying out new recipes, drinking wine with her bestie and (in non-COVID times) has been known to be a bit of a jetsetter amongst her friendship group. Oh and she makes the most of her Disney+ subscription by watching the Marvel films on repeat (definitely not just for Chris Evans...).
