The almost-kiss did not go unnoticed by fans at home, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts.
“Agree with @ShirleyBallas thought Ranvir was going in for a kiss!!” wrote one viewer.
“Ranvir couldn’t have gotten closer to Giovanni if they tried! Wow they basically kissed #Strictly,” another added.
“Ranvir wow. Think she was really lost in the moment. I honestly thought she’d kiss him at the end. Fantastic #Strictly,” a third remarked.
Ranvir and Giovanni scored an impressive 27 points on Saturday night, an eight from Craig Revel Horwood, a nine from Shirley and a ten from guest host Anton Du Beke.
Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One tonight at 7.25pm for the results show.
