Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Ayling-Ellis shared her excitement with fans over getting a new hearing aid after her previous one broke during training.
The EastEnders star, 26, posted a clip of her new hearing aid on Instagram, thanking the NHS for their speedy work.
Showing off her new hearing aid in its green casing, she wrote: ‘Good news guys… I have a new hearing aid!
‘Thank you NHS for the quick response.’
Rose will surely be breathing a sigh of relief as she received her new hearing aid in time for this weekend’s performance.
Professional partner Giovanni Pernice pleaded with the NHS just a few days ago, as he shared the news on Instagram that the couple had encountered a hurdle in rehearsals.
In a series of stories, the Italian dancer begged the NHS to replace Rose’s device quickly.
‘Morning people,’ Giovanni kicked off the message. ‘We have some news for you today. Tell them what happened.’
Handing it over to Rose, she said and signed: ‘This morning my hearing aid broke. But I think it’s because I sweat so much, it broke it.
‘So I can’t hear anything, at all.’
‘So NHS, please be quick. We need it,’ pleaded Giovanni.
‘It’s quite nice. I don’t have to hear his voice,’ she joked, smiling.
‘Yes, good luck to me,’ continued Giovanni, quite defeated.
‘NHS, be quick’ he said, attempting to mouth the words to Rose, hoping for her to understand.
Meanwhile, Rose did not seem worried at all as she closed off the video with a laugh.
Reposting the story to her own profile she admitted: ‘Nobody needs to panic, it is a very normal life for deaf people.’
The actor – who plays Frankie Lewis on the BBC soap – is Strictly’s first Deaf contestant and although she has an interpreter with her at all times during training and the live shows, the cast and crew have started learning sign language to be able to communicate with her more efficiently.
Over the last few weeks, the entire audience, judges and co-stars have picked up the habit of signing ‘applause’ after Rose and Giovanni’s performances.
In last week’s Movie Week episode, the pair left viewers in tears with a stunning Foxtrot to My Heart Will Go On from Titanic.
Scoring 36 with nines from all four of the judges, they quickly found themselves at the top of the leaderboard, before being overtaken by Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu, who bagged the first 10 of the series.
However, it was John Whaite and Johannes Radebe whose powerful closing Paso Doble left everyone speechless and earned them an almost perfect score of 39.
This week, Rose and Giovanni will Cha-Cha to Raspberry Beret by Prince.
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 7.10pm on BBC One.
