Ranvir Singh has announced her debut acting role, which sees her starring alongside Emma Thompson and a whole host of other stars.

The 43 year old took to Good Morning Britain on Wednesday to tell her co-stars about her new gig, and revealed we've probably all already seen it.

Filling in for Susanna Reid on the hit ITV breakfast show, she told co-host Adil Ray: "I know you've starred with Dame Judi Dench, haven't you? Ben Shephard's been in Friends, Charlotte Hawkins has starred alongside Bradley Cooper in a film.

"Erin, our director, has starred in Bridget Jones as a director. I, too, am joining these illustrious fellow colleagues.

"I'm starring alongside Emma Thompson. Now, see if you can spot me…"

The clip showed ITV's Eat Them To Defeat Them advert, which encourages children to eat vegetables by showing them as villains that the "hero" youngsters have to kill by eating them.

Ranvir's co-stars were confused by the clip they watched, not only as to where she starred, but also where 62 year old Emma was.


"Now, you seem underwhelmed by my performance," she said as Adil and the show's guests asked where she was in the advert.

The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant then proudly announced that she starred as an evil red pepper in the commercial.

A clip then played of Ranvir recording her evil laugh and hissing as the vegetable to prove it was in fact her in the advert.

She said: "I was quite proud of that until this moment, I feel bad for sharing it now. It's a big campaign called Eat Them To Defeat them and it helps children to eat.

"Can I tell you Amanda Holden, Emma Thompson, Jamie Oliver, Stephen Mulhern, Giovanna Fletcher were all in this," she said as she listed her cast mates.

Adil's mockery of Ranvir's starring role comes weeks after she, in turn, mocked Harry Styles for his choice of outfit at last month's Brit Awards.

As the highlights of the awards show – during which Harry, 27, was given the prize for Best Single – aired on GMB, Ranvir couldn’t hide her dislike over the Watermelon Sugar singer's look.

Harry sported a brown patterned suit with orange and cream rectangles on as he walked the red carpet and picked up his gong at the O2 Arena.

She said: "We'll have Richard Arnold's take on that and that burnt toast suit which struck me as slightly odd," as she discussed Harry.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
