Ranvir Singh quits GMB role

Last month news broke that Ranavir had quit her role as political editor on GMB.

Following her appearance on Strictly Come Dancing in 2020, Ranvir’s popularity has hit new heights.

It’s because of this, and the fact that she doesn’t enjoy standing freezing on the PM’s doorstep – that sources say has led to her deciding to resign from the role.

A source spoke to The Sun about Ranvir’s decision. They said: “Ranvir is ready for a new challenge at Good Morning Britain and she wants a bigger role within the team.”

“She quietly stepped down as the political editor of the show in anticipation of having a more substantial part to play,” they continued.

“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.”
