Ranvir Singh at last year’s ITV Palooza
Good morning British anchor Ranvir Singh has insisted she doesn’t dwell too much on comments about the age difference between her and partner Louis Church.
The ITV daytime star has been in her current relationship for just over two years and first met Louis when he was producer of her series of Strictly Come Dancing in 2020.
There’s been a lot of talk in the press about Louis being 18 years her junior, but in a new interview with Woman & Home magazine, she shrugged off those comments.
“I don’t see an age difference,” she said (via the Daily Mail). What really matters in any type of relationship in life is a synchronicity of values and emotions. I don’t know why we’re so obsessed with the age difference.
“We’re blissfully happy the way we are right now, and Louis is very much living in the present.”
Ranvir met her current partner three years ago while competing on Strictly
Ranvir also recalled knowing “Louis was special” when they first met backstage at Strictly.
“I knew Louis was special when he walked in,” she recalled, per The Mirror. “I’ve done three jobs and I’ve never been so tired. I was slumped in my chair at 7am.
“Louis asked, ‘Would you like something to drink?’. I was so tired I couldn’t say anything. Fifteen minutes later he came back with a green tea, a Berocca, Haribos and a KitKat. I thought, ‘This is exactly what I want’.”
“From that moment on he instinctively knew exactly what I needed,” she added.
Ranvir was previously married to her ex-husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal, but she announced just before her appearance on Strictly that they had split.
The two ex-partners share a 10-year-old son, Tushaan.
Speaking to The Sun last year about their new relationship, Ranvir said: “I think for a lot of people who meet someone when they’re already parents, there’s probably a much higher bar to be reached. It’s okay to really like someone, but these things can’t go much further if that bond isn’t genuine, true, and authentic.
“I think that’s why single parents stay single for a long time because it’s too risky. You are very protective of your own relationship with your child.
“I think that’s a very common experience for people. But I definitely found some magic.”
