Ranvir Singh has sent her love to fellow Strictly Come Dancing stars Maisie Smith and HRVY as rumours emerged that they shared their first kiss at the grand final after party.
Stories of a budding romance between the two youngest contestants in this year’s series had been swirling for weeks, and now The Sun has reported that the pair had allegedly kissed in a party following the Strictly final on Saturday night.
Addressing the rumours when she presented Lorraine this morning, Singh claimed not to know anything about Smith and HRVY’s relationship, but called them “wonderful young people”.

She said: “I can't say that I saw anything.
“But all I can say is they are two very talented, beautiful young people, are they not?”
However, Singh, who was voted out in the semi-final, speculated that if there was a romance it would be difficult for it to go anywhere in the coming weeks, with both Smith and HRVY in tier 4 areas.
She said: “Although with COVID restrictions they probably won't get to see much of each other now that the show is over.
“Whatever is happening, I wish them all the best, they are really wonderful young people, lots of love to Maisie and HRVY this morning.”
Singh was at the centre of her own Strictly romance rumour, with speculation that there was something going on between her and dance partner Giovanni Pernice.
But she shrugged off the rumours, saying there was no truth in them, and laughed that they had done wonders for her reputation during one episode of Strictly.
The show is known for relationships developing between contestants and dancers, with 2018 winner Stacey Dooley getting together with her partner Kevin Clifton in one of the most famous Strictly romances.
Dancer Gorka Marquez has a daughter with his partner Gemma Atkinson, who he met when she took part in the show, and professional dancers Katya and Neil Jones famously split after she was caught kissing her 2018 celebrity partner Seann Walsh.
