RANVIR Singh set tongues wagging with a flirty comment she left on her Strictly Come Dancing partner Giovanni Pernice’s Instagram.
The professional dancer, 33, posted the thirst trap pic showing off his washboard ads after teasing a budding romance with Jamie Laing’s sister.
Wearing nothing but grey joggers, Giovanni sizzled in the topless shot as he smouldered towards the camera with his dishevelled brunette hair.
The New Year’s post attracted lots of attention, including from Ranvir, 43, who had been romantically linked to Giovanni.
The ITV presenter posted a flirty fire emoji and two hand clapping emojis, and fans could not help but notice.
“Yes Ranvir I agree that you & Giovanni belong together,” wrote one Instagram user.

Another added: “She needs to claim her man.”
The cheeky exchange came after Giovanni teased he’s texting Jamie Laing’s sister.
Emily Laing asked her famous brother to pass on her digits to the Italian hunk when she sent a video message of support into the BBC One dance show.
And the whole clan remained coy when a curious fan asked if anything ever amounted from her request – with Giovanni appearing to fuel the speculation.

With the question reading “Did you give Giovanni your sis’s number?” Sophie replied: “We will never know…” while Jamie mischievously giggled.
Emily added the video to her own Story, first of all with a string of crying with laughter emojis, and the second tagging Giovanni and adding a mysterious shrug.
Tellingly, Giovanni, 31, shared Emily’s post to his page – not Jamie’s – writing: “Who knows?” and adding a crying with laughter emoji as he refused to deny that they are texting.

Viewers were blown away by the pair’s sizzling chemistry during their routines – with the stars also appearing smitten when they weren’t performing.
After they were eliminated from the competition, Ranvir admitted that she had a “connection” with the Strictly hunk as she reflected on their journey together in a sweet Instagram post.
From romantic pet names for each other, secret whispers, and late night texts – fans have picked up on the pair’s sizzling chemistry over their weeks on Strictly.

Even head judge Shirley Ballas commented on their “flirting and teasing” during the routines, with one particularly steamy dance leaving some convinced that they’d shared a cheeky snog live on air.
Earlier this month, the show’s microphones picked up Giovanni privately whispering “come on, baby” to his partner as they danced together.
Both stars were single when they joined the show, with Ranvir even saying she’d be open to the infamous Strictly Curse after splitting from husband Ranjeet.
