Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice and Ranvir Singh fuel romance rumours as he is heard whispering ‘baby’ into his partner’s ear in new footage

The pair have been at the centre of romance rumours during their stint on Strictly Come Dancing, with head judge Shirley Ballas commenting on their ‘chemistry’. 

And Ranvir Singh and Giovanni Pernice did little to stop speculation after the professional dancer, 30, was heard calling his partner ‘baby’ during Saturday’s show.

The Italian dancer was heard whispering ‘come on baby’ in the TV presenter’s ear as they twirled across the dance floor during their Viennese Waltz.

The unheard moment was picked up by Giovanni’s microphone during the dance, with BBC Strictly’s Twitter page sharing the footage on Wednesday.

The show’s official Twitter account penned: ‘Pump up your volume for all the sounds from Musicals Week!’ 

Ranvir, 43, and Giovanni put on an emotional display during Saturday’s routine to She Used To Be Mine from the hit stage show Waitress during Musicals Week.

After the dance, which scored them 27 points, the Strictly professional even planted a sweet kiss on his celeb partner’s forehead, doing little to dispel romance rumours.

Ranvir candidly chatted about how she’s grown in confidence during the show in the video played ahead of her routine on Saturday. 

And Judge Motsi Mabuse was left teary-eyed following her comments, telling the duo: ‘I was moved from your words from your VT and I think every mom has a connection, but I’m more emotional about your dancing!’

Even head judge Shirley, 60, has commented on the ‘chemistry’ between the couple, telling them after their Cha Cha earlier in the contest: ‘I love the flirting and teasing, there’s definitely a strong chemistry between this team.’ 

It is not the first time Giovanni has called Ranvir ‘baby’, as he said in unheard clip from their American Smooth: ‘Love you. Surprise. It’s our song, baby girl. I love this song. I love you, let’s go.’

But Ranvir has repeatedly insisted that the steamy performances the couple have put on during Strictly are just for the cameras.

She said on Good Morning Britain: ‘It’s quite funny isn’t it? I’ve watched the show before and you want to believe in the dream. 

‘That’s part of the magic of Strictly. It’s make believe, it’s fantasy it’s beautiful.’

Host Piers Morgan joked he thinks romance is blooming between the pair, saying: ‘Let the record show I’ve asked about the hand holding pics and there’s no denial.  I’m looking at the pics and I just think, 2+2=4’. 

But the Strictly contestant responded: ‘I think you should stick to words, you’re rubbish at maths.’

Ranvir also brushed off any such talk as she declared there’s no room in her life for anyone apart from her son and her dog in a candid interview with Prima magazine. 

Speaking about her home life, Ranvir, who shares son Tushaan, eight, with estranged husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal, said her focus is on her son and new dog Shmizzels. 

She explained: ‘Will there ever be any room for another person with my son and I? We have a dog now, too! 

‘We got him in lockdown; he’s a little cockapoo called Shmizzels. He’s so cute and needy, the poor little thing. I love him and I can’t imagine life without him now.’

Saturday’s semi-final will see Ranvir and Giovanni put on another sizzling performance as they dance the Waltz to Un Giorno Per Noi by Josh Groban.
