It comes as Ranvir sweetly credited Strictly and her pro partner Giovanni, 30, for helping reignite ‘pride’ in her body and what it can achieve. 

Talking to The Sun, she said: ‘It’s not really about weight actually or anything like that. It’s more just the fact that you’re using your body at quite a rate that I’ve never used it before.

‘I’ve never been a gym bunny. I don’t really enjoy exercise, and therefore, using your body, repeating it hour after hour, movement after movement, and then realising that your body is capable of a lot more.

‘I write myself off quite a lot, but Strictly is reigniting a small modicum of pride in what my body can achieve, even though I take ill upon it. I think that’s the joy of Strictly.’

Motsi added: ‘Can we just declare this National foxtrot day! From one to the next and beautiful and you two compliment each other so well I see a lady I see a man, it takes time to show that quality I just forget the technique because you are the dance.’
