Ranvir Singh has opened up on her experience on Strictly Come Dancing, and how she found it difficult to adapt once the show was finished.
The Good Morning Britain host, who reached the semi-final alongside dance partner Giovanni Pernice, explained in a recent interview: “Actually coming out of it for that first, well, the second week out of it, I did feel quite flat and I couldn't shake it off.”
“It was a very strange experience really, because you think coming out of it, you'd feel really on a high and really happy.”

Speaking on ITV News’ Calling Peston Podcast, the 42 year old explained: “And I did quite well and all of that, but I think nothing quite matches the buzz of it.

“You're in the centre of the world when you're on Strictly because, you know, 11 million people watched every Saturday and every Sunday, 11 million people and in this day and age on terrestrial TV, that's unheard of, isn't it?”
“I keep trying to remind myself that the fact that I'm bored is a sign of the fact that there's no drama in my life. And that is an amazing thing to be able to say, there's no drama.”
But although the aftermath of Strictly may seem a little dull, aside from learning to dance, the hit BBC show offered little in terms of socialising.
Ranvir revealed: "I found it quite tricky the fact that we couldn't socialise with anybody during the whole run of Strictly.
"So it was quite – you were on your own a lot, really. You're either on your own, in your dressing room.
"Or you were with your dance partner or whatever, but you couldn't really sit and chat with any of the contestants much.
“You sort of have a conversation in a corridor, then you all of a sudden feel like, ‘Oh my gosh, we've been stood here for too long. I better move on, I better move on’.”
The mum of one also opened up on how different competing on Strictly was to her job as political editor on GMB.
She said: “If you're a reality star, if you're a pop star, if you're anything else, you're used to talking about yourself, but as journalists, the last people we want to talk about is ourselves.
"It's extremely exposing. And also I had no skill or tools to mask it.
“It was my first ever experience of having to talk about myself each and every day into camera.

"So I have no filter and I think that's what was a bit odd, but also in the end, probably one of the most impactful things – I couldn't filter it.”
"So if I was feeling a bit sad and a bit crap about myself and just a bit, you know, everything you feel as a 42 year old sort of slightly overweight single mom, which I am. It was all just there, it was all there to be seen.”
