STRICTLY Come Dancing's Ranvir Singh was forced to wear her slippers while presenting Good Morning Britain today due to painful dance training.
The 43-year-old star admitted that the balls of her feet were causing her trouble from gruelling cha-cha-cha rehearsals with professional partner Giovanni Pernice.
The TV presenter hosted the breakfast show ahead of Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid's 6.30am arrival today, and meteorologist Laura Tobin couldn't wait to discuss her Strictly experience.
Ranvir shot to the top of the leaderboard after wowing judges and viewers on Saturday night – but the success comes at a price.
As Ranvir cut to Laura to report the weather, she exclaimed: "We haven't talked about it yet!
"You were so amazing at the weekend – your hair and make-up!"
Ranvir replied: "To be fair, the Strictly magic – some of it is dancing, but a lot of it is the hair, make-up and outfit, right?
"It looked like I was from the poster for the film!"
Laura then revealed: "Can we just point out that your feet hurt a lot so today you're wearing slippers?"
The bashful dancer acknowledged: "I'm wearing my slippers, I'm so sorry.
"It's the cha-cha-cha, the balls of my feet are so sore."
She then added: "But nobody needs to know this – I am sure it'll all be lovely on Saturday!"
Piers was full of encouragement when he joined the show later on, saying of her slippers: "She came into the pre-show briefing and she was complaining, but no pain no gain, Ranvir!
"Come on, you're on an unstoppable train to glory and to victory!"
Ranvir recently told The Sun Online that Giovanni had reignited her pride in her figure – making her look "10 years younger".
Her flirty behaviour with dance partner Giovanni has led to rumours of a secret romance, and in an exclusive interview with The Sun, Ranvir has revealed how dance partner has been pivotal in building her confidence.
When she was first announced as a competitor, Ranvir admitted she'd be open to the curse, adding: "Well, I am single!"
The GMB star recently split from husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal, who she shares eight-year-old son Tushaan with.
Giovanni, 30, previously dated two Strictly contestants in Georgia May Foote and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, who he broke up with in January.
