Strictly Come Dancing fans have been left gushing since Rose Ayling-Ellis and Giovanni Pernice appeared together during the Bafta TV awards.

Last year's popular Strictly pairing, won the must-see moment for their silent dance in the beloved BBC dance competition.

EastEnders actress Ayling-Ellis, 27, was the first deaf contestant to compete on Strictly, performing alongside professional dance partner Pernice last year.

Their routine – which features 10 seconds of silence in tribute to the deaf community again during the live BBC show - won praise from the public.

Ayling-Ellis said: “It is a very special moment for us because hopefully it showed how powerful TV can be, where it has actually introduced changes. It has even helped the BSL (British Sign Language) law be passed recently. It made people stand up more for sign language, and just a better deaf awareness and positiveness towards people. We have still got a long way to go but it is such a great start. We are so, so, so proud of it.”

Pernice added: “When we first thought of the idea to put silence into the dance, we knew it was going to give an impact, but this went bigger than what we thought.”
