Strictly Come Dancing 2021: Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice’s stunning sign language routine translated

Strictly Come Dancing stars Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice had us all captivated with their moving routine over the weekend, as they incorporated sign language into the performance.

The EastEnders actress, who is deaf, and professional dancer soared up the leaderboard with the dance, winning praise from the judges and viewers watching on from home.

They revealed at the end of their routine that they were portraying a couple arguing about breaking up, and their BSL conversation has now been translated in a new video shared on the official BBC Strictly Instagram page.

It began with the soap star asking: ‘Where have you been? You’ve been ages!’

‘I don’t want to talk about this now, I’m too tired,’ her partner replied.

‘Me and you have broken up. I’m leaving,’ she fumed as he begged her for forgiveness, adding: ‘Stop. Rose. Let’s have a chat. I’m so sorry.’

Fans couldn’t stop raving about the performance on social media, with the judges also impressed by the scenes, awarding the pair 37 points.

Rose has become one of the favourites to take home the glitterball thanks to her dazzling efforts with partner Giovanni.

And it’s not just on the dance floor that she is working hard, as she recently revealed that she played a hand in making the episodes more accessible for those watching on from home.

While she has tuned in to the BBC competition in the past, she explained that she often found it difficult to watch with the subtitles used by the BBC.

Upon joining the line-up, she asked show bosses if an interpreter could be put on the programme, something they soon made possible..

‘Obviously, for the launch show recently, last year and the year before, it always had live subtitles, even when it’s been recorded,’ Rose said.

‘So I mentioned that to them and they realised that, so they’re like, “Okay, we’ll change the subtitles.”

‘I’m so happy. It means I can watch it. It means I can watch myself. I can’t watch it with live subtitles.’

Strictly Come Dancing continues on Saturday at 7.10pm on BBC One.
