Ranvir and Giovanni thrilled viewers with their beautiful American Smooth on Saturday’s Strictly Come Dancing and were awarded 24 points. However, despite praise from the judges and viewers, the Good Morning Britain journalist admitted she felt she hadn’t done enough to impress professional dancer Giovanni and panicked about their routine as they spoke to host Claudia Winkleman.
Appearing on It Takes Two on Monday evening, Giovanni told his partner she should be proud of her performance.
Giovanni remarked: “The performance was very nice because she delivered exactly what I wanted her to do.
“At the end of the day it’s an American Smooth Foxtrot so you know, the frame is to be there, and you had a wonderful frame.
“We could have done a little bit more of a stretch with the steps but I think it was a very good performance.
“You should be proud of yourself and that dance.”
Ranvir went on to note: “You know what I found out is that you finish the dance and then you don’t get a chance to speak to each other.
“Then you get the judges comments and then you go up to Claudia [Winkelman] and I just felt a little like, ‘Did I let you down?’
“We never get to talk until after the event sort of thing.”
Zoe added: “I think there’s always that bit of relief that the dance is over but you never know how it’s gone.
“Well, 24 points, up there with Jamie [Laing] and Bill [Bailey], it’s showing how tight this competition is, we can’t call it.”
It came after Ranvir batted away rumours of a romance between her and Giovanni when she spoke to Piers Morgan on GMB.
He asked: “I’ve got to ask you about the hand holding pictures we saw in the papers.”

Dodging the question, Ranvir hit back: “These things sell newspapers don’t they Piers as you well know.
“It’s funny, isn’t it? I don’t really read any of it. So it doesn’t really mean anything.”
Piers continued: “Let the record show I’ve asked you about the paparazzi hand-holding pictures and there’s been no denial.
“No denial, just an ‘I don’t read my press.”
“What am I supposed to be denying Piers? Ask me a straight question,” Ranvir snapped back.
She added the only man in her bubble is “my eight-year-old son”, remarking: “That’s who has all of my heart all of the time.”
Ranvir stands in good stead to win this year’s Strictly with Ladbrokes cutting her odds of winning to 10/1.
However, she does face tough competition from Bill (8/11), HRVY (5/2) and Maisie Smith (6/1).
Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturday on BBC One at 7.25pm.
