Piers Morgan on GMB

GMB: Piers Morgan pokes fun at Ranvir Singh over ‘airbrushed’ magazine cover


| Updated:

GMB host Piers Morgan managed to put his foot in his mouth yet again on the show on Wednesday.

Soon-to-be Strictly Come Dancing star Ranvir Singh showed off her appearance on the cover of the new issue of Woman & Home when Piers made a massive faux pas.

Susanna Reid was quick to compliment her co-star on her cover, but Piers couldn’t help but interject.

What did Piers Morgan say to Ranvir Singh?

He quipped: “Beautifully airbrushed, well done Ranvir.”

Conversation then turned to the interview inside the magazine, in which Ranvir says that Piers is “97% the same in real life” and “3% softer” off-screen.

“Ooh Ranvir, I’m liking this!” he said after realising he was the only GMB co-star to get a mention.

He joked: “Nobody remembers Frank Sinatra’s band.”

Susanna then replied: “Are we just your backing singers?”

Ranvir Singh could be Strictly’s ‘dark horse’

Meanwhile, Good Morning Britain co-host Adil Ray has told Entertainment Daily to look out for his breakfast TV co-star.

He reckons she could just be this year’s “dark horse”.

He exclusively told ED!: “I’ve no idea if she can dance. She reckons she can’t but they’re always the dark horses.

“She’ll be able to dance, she’ll have danced at weddings before, she’ll be able to move those hips, I know she will,” he added.

“She’ll be great.”

How will Strictly be different this year?

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the series will be different this year.

Firstly, the show will have a shorter run, as revealed by a spokesperson back in June.

They said: “The Strictly Come Dancing team are doing everything they can to bring the nation plenty of Strictly magic later this year.

“To ensure we deliver the high standards audiences know and love, and in light of the ongoing considerations around COVID-19, this year’s series of Strictly will have a slightly shorter run than usual.

“The safety of our cast and crew is of the utmost importance to us and further updates will be made in due course.”

There is no confirmation on the start date yet but it is likely to be October, with fewer couples taking part.

Pro dancers began rehearsals remotely at the end of July.
