Good Morning Britain’s Ranvir Singh could be set to make a LOT of money this year after dazzling viewers during her time on Strictly Come Dancing.

The mum of one made such a grand impression that ITV are reportedly primed for her to be poached by rival channels and as a result, have offered her a deal “as good as golden handcuffs” to stick with them.

"Ranvir is loved at ITV and by its viewers, she has everything that the channel needs to move forward,” a source told The Sun.

"There are lots of high- profile projects in the pipeline, too. The intention is that she will be one of the more used presenters. Nobody wants to lose her."

Previously a political correspondent for the show, the source thinks Ranvir will be called up to host when main anchors Piers Morgan or Susanna Reid are off work.

Ranvir has been steadily working her way up in her TV career since 2005 when she started out – wait for it – on the BBC, as part of a regional news team.

She then joined ITV as a host on the now defunct Daybreak before moving onto GMB.

But in 2020 she earned legions of new fans with her emotive performances on the dancefloor – and sizzling chemistry with professional partner Giovanni Pernice.

Although they both denied a romance, Ranvir told Closer, "Doing Strictly is invigorating, it’s exhilarating and I feel incredibly lucky. And Giovanni is great – he just tells me to forget about everyone else and focus on what we’re doing. He’s built to compete – he’s a competitive person, whereas I’m really not.

"My son is super-excited about it all. He’s so cute and lovely and is a massive supporter of the both of us. If I ever FaceTime him, the only thing he says is, ‘Is Gio there? Is Gio…?’. All he wants to do is to be like Giovanni – he adores him! He really is a lovely, sweet little thing."
