Ranvir Singh has said she feels disappointed for her Strictly partner Giovanni Pernice.

The charismatic Strictly Come Dancing couple were kicked off the show on Sunday evening.

Much to viewers’ despair, both Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood chose to save Jamie Laing and Karen Hauer on the Strictly semi-final.

Throughout the series, Ranvir and Giovanni’s heated chemistry was noted by Strictly viewers.

Some even wondered if they were falling romantically for one another.

And in Ranvir’s social media tribute to Giovanni, she says she ‘adores him’ but is ‘disappointed’ for him.

Addressing her some 89,000 Strictly followers, she shared: “Sadly it was not to be – but what a way to go… on a beautiful Waltz that got a score of 8,9,9 on the semi-final of @bbcstrictly. I couldn’t have done any more! My incredible partner – you @pernicegiovann1 tried your best to get me to the final and I’m just disappointed for you.

“I adore you. My feet are relieved to not be punished any more and although my heart is a little sad for tonight – I am genuinely proud of what we achieved from below zero ability and confidence to start with to feeling magical in the Paso, Foxtrot, the American Smooth, Argentine Tango, Viennese Waltz, and a classic Waltz !”
