STRICTLY Ranvir Singh of Come Dancing was teased by his Good Morning Britain co-stars as they spotted his dog tangled up in an embarrassing accident when he first met Giovanni Pernice
The 43-year-old star was so distracted by her professional dance partner that her poor dog Shmizzels didn’t look at him – forced to walk backwards after Ranvir didn’t notice the leash was stuck around his legs
Pointing out the crash in today’s GMB, Kate Garraway joked: « It looks like you were pretty stuck with Giovanni, and in fact, poor Shmizzels your dog couldn’t follow you! »
Playing the clip in slow motion, zooming in on Shmizzels, Kate continued, « It actually caught the attention of a lot of people… It’s you and Giovanni who are meeting you for the first time.
Kate joked: « Basically he was the apple of your eye and now Giovanni is on the scene… »
However, Ranvir insisted she caught up with her animal after seeing what happened – spoiling him with his favorite cheese.
She shared, « He’s adorable, he eats a lot of cheese, which is his favorite, because I bought him a lot on the weekends!
Ranvir then revealed that she had « ruthlessly » changed her WhatsApp photo of one of her dogs and her son to the official one of her and Giovanni
Later in the series, the star apologized to Shmizzels again, explaining, « We were there for five hours filming, it just went on and on
Ranvir also revealed that Giovanni lives alone so he can join the bubble of support from Ranvir and his eight-year-old son Tushaan for training.
And their dog was confused to see his owner hugging someone who wasn’t his son
She explained, « Shmizzels is a lockdown dog, we bought him in June, so the only person he’s seen me kissing is my son
« Obviously the reason I can kiss Giovanni is that he’s in my bubble now, but Shmizzels has gone mad – he didn’t know what was going on
« He said to me, ‘Why is my mom hugging this person? « he was really protective, nibbling his fingers, a really strange reaction »
