The dramatic dance, set to Alicia Keys track Fallin’, went down a treat with the judges as it allowed Rose to flex her acting muscles.
Rose and Giovanni won the second-highest score of the night at 37 from the judges in their best score of the series so far.
Judge Motsi Mabuse even awarded the EastEnders actress – who is the show’s first deaf contestant – a perfect 10 with her score.
Afterwards, Rose laughed about how she is able to correct Giovanni in their training over his use of sign language so it isn’t just a one-way street with tutorship.
Naturally, viewers could not help but be swept along with the performance from Rose and Giovanni and took to social media to share their views.
One Strictly Come Dancing viewer penned on Twitter : “Once again Rose was the stand out performance for me tonight. The storytelling sold the dance. One just naturally flowed from the other and then back again. There was nothing contrived or artificial about it.Beautiful #Strictly ”.
Meanwhile, one viewer of the BBC One show tweeted: “ @RoseAylingEllis @pernicegiovann1. #Strictly Rose has such a great quality to her dancing. She’s got a beautiful posture and frame. I felt the raw emotion through that dance. So elegant poised and beautiful I loved it. Rose continues to impress me she needs to be in that final.”.
Elsewhere, another person tweeted: “I know I’m always close to the edge at the moment but I can’t help but lose it every single time Rose dances on #strictly. Beyond amazing”.
Finally, one Strictly Come Dancing fan concluded: “Rose is so beautiful and seems like a complete sweetheart. I hope her and Giovanni win”.
Regardless of how far Rose goes in the competition, she has more dramatic scenes on the way in EastEnders as her character Frankie Lewis continues to experience friction with half-sister Nancy Carter.
