Judge Motsi Mabuse was moved to tears after Ranvir and Giovanni’s performance on Saturday night, saying she thinks every mother has a connection to single mum Ranvir.

On the results show, Motsi said: “Ranvir is emotionally touching a lot of women and mums who go through similar things in life.

“Seeing her being proud of herself and what she’s producing… It’s just so much more than dancing what she’s putting on the dance floor.”
