Following her stint on Strictly Come Dancing, Ranvir’s star has soared.

And it’s this – as well as her dislike of standing freezing on the PM’s doorstep – that sources say has led to her decision to step down.

According to The Sun, Ranvir is looking for a bigger role on the breakfast news show.

A source said: “Ranvir is ready for a new challenge at Good Morning Britain and she wants a bigger role within the team.”

They added: “She quietly stepped down as the political editor of the show in anticipation of having a more substantial part to play.

“She is a hugely popular member of GMB. Keeping Ranvir on board is something everyone wants. However, to keep her the job – and pay – will have to be right,” they concluded.
