Terug in 2017, before her Strictly success and soap fame, Rose was cast in the pop rock band‘s video for single Middle of the Night.

She played one half of a young couple who struggle to communicate, with some of the song’s lyrics communicated through sign language.

Four years later, Rose waltzed through to the Strictly final and scooped the Glitterball alongside Italian pro dancer Giovanni Pernice.

She celebrated last night by drinking prosecco and dancing after making history as the first deaf winner of Strictly.

The actress triumphed in the BBC One show alongside partner Giovanni, defeating Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite and his partner Johannes Radebe, the first all-male pairing on the show.

In an interview with The Guardian, Rose said she had an out of body experience when she found out that she had won.

I was so shocked”, sy het gese. “It was really weirdit felt like I was out of my body for a moment.

We celebrated last night. There was a bit of prosecco, and dancing.

As a deaf dancer, Rose said that she felt she had something to prove when she entered the show.

On the first week, I was really shy, but now I can be myself, and I definitely feel more comfortable in my own skin”, sy het gese.

The first week, ek was soos, ‘Everyone’s going to be expecting a deaf person to dance really badly’.

But I definitely proved a lot of people wrong.

Equality charity Scope has described Ayling-Ellis’s participation in the show as amassive step forwardfor disability representation.

Strictly Come Dancing will return on Christmas Day for a festive special on BBC One.
