Ranvir Singh has joked about putting on weight in lockdown, quipping that she needs spandex rather than sequins for 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Ranvir Singh has joked she needs spandex rather than sequins after putting on weight in lockdown.
The 'Good Morning Britain' presenter is worried about squeezing into her 'Strictly Come Dancing' costumes and joked she feels sorry for the wardrobe team on the show.
She told The Mail on Sunday: "It's no secret, I've put on a stone during lockdown. So I pity the poor wardrobe people.
"I said to them, 'Listen, I don't mind what you do on the outside, what I care about is the strength of the support underwear. It has to be the best you've got, just suck it all in.
"I'll have fat earlobes, fat ankles and fat fingers because they've pushed it all out – that's fine. I'm happy with that. Just so they are aware of that."
And Ranvir, 43, has been trying her best to get in shape in order to prepare herself for the gruelling dance rehearsals.
She said: "I've started running a little bit to try to get my body used to being completely out of breath and I've done a few high-intensity training sessions. I haven't gone hell for leather because I'm up against an Olympic gold medallist in (boxer) Nicola Adams."
