Good Morning Britain’s Ranvir Singh fights back tears as she courageously speaks about sexual assault aged 12

GOOD Morning Britain host Ranvir Singh fought back tears as she bravely spoke about being the victim of sexual assault aged just 12. The broadcaster, 44, is fronting a gritty new ITV show where she talks to a victim of Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein, in a conversation which brought back her own experience.

Ranvir was explaining the programme, which airs tonight, to Good Morning Britain presenters Richard Madeley and Susanna Reid when she was forced to steady herself as the understandably emotional subject took hold. After a snippet of her chat with victim Lisa Phillips aired she addressed the concept of "survivors' guilt" and "memory" around sexual assault said: "It was in an effort to comfort her.

"Often when we do this job people think we are just out to make people cry on telly, do you know what I mean, I'm being blunt about how people view journalists." She continued: "It was just an instant thing - I felt a shocking sense of empathy with what she was describing. "I was acutely aware we were on camera but it's a human to human experience when someone is telling you something so painful." "So I did say to her 'something happened to me when I was 12 and I understand you shouldn't feel guilty about not ..." before tailing off.
