Ranvir Singh on eating habits

Elsewhere, the presenter recently opened up on Instagram about her eating habits.

She said in a candid post: “I have a very deep rooted compulsive eating/food addiction type experience with eating… since I was about 12. Nutrition education is only the very LAST piece of a complicated, messy, life-long jigsaw that I’ve struggled to solve.”

I’m off GMB ill right now… trying to get better for General Election night.

Ranvir continued: “The biggest issue is learning how to feel every single human emotion without the aide of food to get me through.”

The Strictly Come Dancing star added: “I just wanted to share this with you. It’s probably TMI. But I just don’t want any of you who are struggling with food to see me and think ‘other people find it easy, so I’m just a failure.’ Which is how I’ve spent almost my entire life.”
