Ranvir Singh has broken her silence after she was pulled from Good Morning Britain after falling ill.
The 44-year-old star arrived on set earlier this week for the ITV breakfast show, where she plays a political news reporter, despite suffering from severe hay fever.
Despite the hay fever, Ranvir was determined to get on with the show – but after half an hour of airing, things took a turn for the worst.
Co-host Richard Madeley called it ‘the worst hay fever he’s ever seen’, with Ranvir admitting: ‘I don’t know what’s going on. That’s why I look like this today. I’m fine. Thanks. Only tears. ‘
Ranvir was quickly replaced by reporter Louisa James as Susanna Reid and Richard sent their best wishes to Ranvir.
After viewers asserted that Ranvir cried with fear running down her face, she took to Twitter on Thursday morning to set the record straight.
Ranvir explained that she was finally diagnosed for her strange symptoms.
“Thanks for all my sore eyes tutorials this week,” she wrote.
“It was an allergic reaction to something more than pollen because the skin around my eyes became paper thin and painful. Anyway I’m hosting @lorraine tomorrow and for the whole next week – please sorry for my face!”

The insider added: “She’s a hugely popular member of GMB and keeping Ranvir around is what everyone wants.”
