Ranvir, 43, shared the video with her followers on Twitter, writing: “Turns out @pernicegiovann1 was very chatty during our American Smooth on Saturday !!”

In the short clip, which also features Ranvir’s fellow Strictly contestants’ performances and conversations, Aretha Franklin’s song I Say A Little Prayer begins to play as Giovanni says: “Surprise, it’s our song baby girl!”

Ranvir replies: “I love this song!” Giovanni then repeats that it’s their song, before continuing: “I love you, let’s go.”’

After their performance Ranvir explained to Strictly presenter Claudia Winkleman that she and Gio were channeling a married couple they had spotted during filming for the duration of their routine.

But that hasn’t stopped viewers having their say on the previously unheard audio.

One viewer commented: “Ever so into that character wasn’t he?” adding a laughing crying emoji. While another said: “Well done for managing to function after this…. “baby girl”, “i love you”, “let’s go baby” and the singing too. Keep up the good work, everyone is rooting for you!”

Others praised the Good Morning Britain star for her Strictly journey so far, saying they were backing her and her Italian dance partner to win the competition.

“I really really hope you win, no background in this sort of “celebrity” but you shine!!” one of Ranvir’s followers said. “Cool, calm, collected, classy and so very beautiful when you dance! I believe stars like you are why this programme was originally created!! My winner definitely.”

“The best pairing!! hope training is going well, we’re all rooting for you,” another added.

Both Ranvir and Giovanni have dismissed claims that there is anything going on between them off the dance floor, with Ranvir telling her GMB co-star Piers Morgan that the rumours are “hilarious”.

As Piers grilled her on whether there is any truth to the romance reports, Ranvir explained: “I suppose what it is is there’s a performance element.”

“It’s all about telling a story between two people… He’s so much about the energy of the performance.”
