Ranvir admitted taking part in the show is 'surreal' and it has helped her 'break down' some of her barriers. Ranvir said: 'Giovanni is so amazing, he doesn't need me to be sensational. He sizzles all by himself. It doesn't matter whether I'm in the room or not, he's sizzling away. The dances are all about being romantic and, of course, we have to make them convincing'.   Ranvir, who confirmed she had split from her husband Ranjeet Singh just weeks before making her Strictly debut, said the show came at the right time for her and praised Giovanni with helping to restore her body confidence. Ranvir and Giovanni have notable chemistry, which viewers and the judges have repeatedly commented on. But the star says the intimacy stays on the dancefloor.
