Rose Ayling-Ellis, 27, has gone from strength to strength this year since becoming the first ever deaf winner of Strictly Come Dancing. The EastEnders actress took to Instagram to post some behind the scene pictures from the Strictly tour, with fans going wild due to Rose being “replaced” in one of the pictures.
Rose took to Instagram, in view of her 543,000 followers to share a string of five pictures.
The actress can be seen posing in the first, while the second shows her partner Giovanni in an embrace with fellow professional Kai Widdrington.
In the third picture, Rose and Kai can be seen posing with Nancy Xu, while the other pictures include those who work backstage.
She captioned the image: “Behind the scenes. Thank you Birmingham.”
He captioned the pic on January 4: “It’s not personal…It’s just business.”
Kai made it to the Strictly final also, however his partner AJ Odudu had to pull out due to a devastating injury.
Giovanni has been a professional on the show since 2015 and has gotten desperately close to winning the show a handful of times, but has never quite made it to the last hurdle.
However, he is now thrilled he has secured the win after over half a decade on the programme.
