Rose Ayling-Ellis styled out a stumble as she took to the dance floor for the Strictly Come Dancing Live Tour.
The series 19 winner was rushing down the steps, hand-in-hand with professional partner Giovanni Pernice, when she narrowly avoided falling flat on her face.
The 27-year-old seemed to get over-excited as she pointed and smiled at fellow contestant Maisie Smith, who ran down the steps next to her with Kai Widdrington.
However, Rose almost lost her footing, and it was a good job Giovanni was there for her to cling on to!
The Italian’s reaction was rather hilarious afterwards though, as he covered his face and shook his head after Rose’s life seemingly flashed before his eyes.
In true Strictly style, the EastEnders star laughed it off, and even took to social media to poke fun at herself following the trip.
Of course, the hilarious moment did the rounds online, with one fan tweeting it writing: ‘no bc of course rose almost stacked it down those stairs 😭 giovanni’s face after is absolutely sending me [sic]’
Rose reposted the clip in good spirits, adding: ‘Just carry on and act [like] it didn’t happen 😂😂’
The star – who made history as Strictly’s first deaf contestant – also shared the video on her Instagram story to stand in solidarity with Tilly Ramsay, who took a tumble last night in Birmingham too.
‘Don’t worry @tillyramsay we are in it together 😂’ wrote Rose, after Tilly shared a video of her falling to the ground during her couple’s choice routine.
‘Nice to know it’s not just me,’ replied Tilly, before sharing a selfie of her ‘war wounds’ on her knee.
At least they can all laugh at themselves and it’s nice to see girls supporting girls!
The Strictly tour is currently in Birmingham and will head to Leeds next week to continue its 33-date run.
Rose and Giovanni have won each show so far, and the actress has also been teaching the pros sign language backstage in between performances.
The Strictly tour has a BSL interpreter present for every show this time around, following Rose’s triumph.
Her groundbreaking routines had a great impact on audiences, but especially so on partner Giovanni, who got a tattoo to commemorate their win.
