Strictly Come Dancing: Ranvir Singh wasn’t as good as judges suggest, claims James Jordan

GMB presenter topped the leaderboard

Strictly Come Dancing competitor Ranvir Singh looks like she will go much further in the competition than most of her Good Morning Britain colleagues.

She has wowed her partner Giovanni Pernice, the judges and viewers – even co-star Piers Morgan has been impressed.

In the first week she was red-hot dancing the Paso Doble to End of Time.

Week two saw the GMB presenter take on the Quickstep to You Are The Sunshine Of My Life.

And last night she did the Foxtrot to Love You I do.

She received three nines from judges Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and Shirley Ballas for her incredible performance, giving her a total of 27.

The 43-year-old was overjoyed to top the leaderboard, one point ahead of Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse, who were second and scored 26.

But former Strictly pro James Jordan thinks, although she was good on last night’s show, she wasn’t as good as the judges made out.

What did James Jordan say about Ranvir on Strictly?

Many of his followers disagreed though, with one saying: “Maisie has so much dance experience though.

“So you can’t compare with someone with zero experience. Ranvir is becoming such a talented dancer.I prefer the underdogs!”

Another remarked: “Absolutely LOVED this dance, those back bends were amazing. And her handography at the beginning was amazing. She’s definitely a butterfly emerging.”

A third wrote: “She’s not a dancer though so can’t compare to Maisie.

“If I was a celeb I’d want Gio as a partner. He really looks after his ladies and brings out the best in them. Really enjoying this series – we need it!”
