Ranvir Singh (born 1977) is a British television presenter and journalist, currently employed by ITV, hosting breakfast programme Good Morning Britain and occasionally anchoring the national ITV News programmes.
Singh was born in 1977 in Preston, Lancashire into a Sikh family. Educated at Kirkham Grammar School, an independent school in Kirkham, Lancashire, she graduated from the University of Lancaster with a degree in English and Philosophy. She then gained a postgraduate qualification in journalism at the school of Journalism, Media and Communication, University of Central Lancashire in Preston.
