Strictly Come Dancing 2020 star Ranvir Singh got a bit of a shock when her co-worker Piers Morgan sent her a video message during an appearance on the BBC programme’s spin-off show It Takes Two yesterday. The 43-year-old Good Morning Britain host sarcastically said she was “so lucky” to work with the straight-talking star, who warned her about representing their breakfast show and preventing “another catastrophe”.

“Oh my goodness @piersmorgan you are brutal!

“So shocked you see you pop up on #ItTakesTwo last night,” Ranvir told her 75,800 Twitter followers ahead of the second live show.

On Instagram, she posted a screen grab which captured her shocked expression when the 55-year-old appeared on TV to give her a “pep talk”.

Alongside the image she wrote ironically: “I’m so lucky to work with such supportive colleagues like @piersmorgan.

“Thanks for the surprise ‘motivational’ pep talk on #ittakestwo @bbcstrictly ahead of this Saturday’s #quickstep with @pernicegiovann1.

“Quote: ‘I can’t have another catastrophe on our watch – you’ve got to win!’” she wrote online.

During her appearance on the BBC Two programme with her Strictly partner Giovanni Pernice, Piers said via a video message: “I think you know what I’m going to say, but it’s not about you, you’re representing Good Morning Britain and we’ve been badly let down by Charlotte Hawkins last time – so badly that her dancer actually left the show, Brendan Cole.

“That was the damage she warped. I can’t have another catastrophe on our watch – you’ve got to win!”

“Thanks Piers,” the Strictly star remarked after seeing the footage.

On tonight’s show, Ranvir and Giovanni will perform a Quickstep to You Are The Sunshine Of My Life by Stevie Wonder.

On her debut last week, the mum-of-one wowed viewers at home with her impressive Paso Doble performance.

The judges awarded her a total of 21 points, placing the couple in joint third position on the leaderboard.
