The actress who is known for portraying the character of Frankie Lewis on EastEnders has made it through to week nine with dancing partner Giovanni Pernice after wowing judges with their Couple’s Choice which added a touching moment of silence to the dance floor. However, Strictly Come Dancing hasn’t been easy for Rose, as she opened up on the struggles she has faced in training.

Making Strictly Come Dancing history, the soap actress is the first ever deaf contestant to grace the ballroom.

The soap star admitted: “I’ve never really danced. I’ve had no dance experience before.

“I did ballet, but that didn’t last very long, because all I was doing was just following everybody else and not really understanding what’s going on.” 

Rose went on to comment the show was the “bravest thing” she’d tried.

She explained: “I’ve learnt that I get distracted very easily. So I have to concentrate all the time, and to concentrate for eight hours of the day is quite hard.”

Although the couple scored the first 40 points of the series in week six, she still remains focused.

Rose said:  “I’m still learning, every day I’m still learning, but I still enjoy it a lot and it’s so satisfying when I get it right.

“It’s so satisfying when my body does it, again and again and again, with no mistakes. 

“It’s the best place to be, but it’s proper work to get to that point in the first place.” 

Rose also talked about the pressure she puts herself under to perfect her dancing. 

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 to Dr Rangan Chatterjee, she remarked: “I always feel that I could do more, I don’t know why. 

“It feels really good to get it done on a Saturday night and everyone is hyped up and you feel like “Yes, I got it!” and it’s going really well.

“But I always feel like there’s room for improvement. I feel like… arghh! I could do a bit more!” she continued.

In order to achieve her high scores with Giovanni, Rose has had to overcome her low confidence and tell herself to “just go for it”.

“Don’t worry about what other people think, that’s Giovanni’s advice,” she shared.

“If I’m worried about what other people think, tell yourself ‘Nobody cares, nobody cares. Just do it!'”

This week, Rose and Giovanni will be dancing the Quickstep to Love Is An Open Door from Frozen The Musical.

The pair’s odds have been cut to just 1/5 as fans get behind them to lift the Glitterball Trophy next month. 

Meanwhile, at the other end of the betting, it’s now Dan who is the favourite to depart the show this weekend at 5/4, with Tilly fancied at 6/4.
