Former Strictly star Dr Ranj Singh has announced some surprising news about his NHS medical career, revealing on Friday that he was attending his last shifts at his job at St George's Hospital in London. He wrote on Instagram: "Tonight I start a run of 3 night shifts - my final shifts at the wonderful @stgeorgestrust. I’ve not been here long but this place has taught me so much - above all, how important it is to understand, value & support each other. Plus, I'll be wearing my @nhsrainbow badge with pride!" He then reassured his followers: "P.s. don’t worry, I'm not quitting the NHS!"

It's not known where Ranj will be headed next, though of course he is busy with his commitments as one of the resident doctors on This Morning, and he recently teased his followers with news of a new television show. Sharing a Boomerang video of him conducting a voiceover on Friday, he tweeted: "Been back in the VO booth today... new @ITV show coming soon! Why does my quiff look so huge?!?"
