Ranvir Singh is going from strength to strength on Strictly Come Dancing at the moment, impressing judges with both her Latin and ballroom routines.

And the Good Morning Britain presenter has revealed that her success is the result of a lot of hard workeven while she's asleep.

"I’m literally moving in my sleep," the star shared in an interview with The Mirror.

"My legs are moving in my sleep, re-enacting the whole thing over and over again."

The 43-year-old said that this after-effect is the result of a lot of training, which can be painful.

"Your whole body feels it and you wake up with throbbing feet in the night and then you know you’ve really worked hard. As Giovanni keeps saying, 'If it’s not uncomfortable, it’s not right.'"

Ranvir went on: "It’s muscle memory and it’s repetition. You have to keep repeating it.

"Then, as Gio says to me, your body remembers what to do and on the night, you can enjoy it and you can perform. If you’re worried about your steps, you can’t perform."

The mum-of-one is continuing to balance being a single mother and working at GMB alongside her time on the BBC show.

While it's not easy, Ranvir clearly isn't one to complain.

She said: "There’s no minute spared but I’m built for grafting. My whole career is based on me constantly, from the beginning, putting my hand up in the office and going, 'Yeah, I’ll do that'…

"It’s a challenge, but people have got far greater challenges than being a bit tired and dancing on telly."

On Wednesday, the presenter revealed that she has lost weight since starting training for Strictly.

Speaking to her Good Morning Britain colleagues, Ranvir revealed: "I just realised I have dropped two dress sizes in two weeks. So there has definitely been a change."

Her co-host Piers Morgan quipped: "You're hot, baby," to which she replied: "Thanks baby! It is an amazing ride."
