The second picture was taken inside a spa room and showed several reclining chairs in front of a working fireplace.

"Just what I needed," the star wrote alongside the snap, followed by a heart eyes emoji.

Rose has had an intense end to the year. After training non-stop for the past four months she and professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice lifted the Glitterball trophy, beating Johannes Radebe and partner John Whaite, who finished in second place.

The actress was happy to be spending the day at a spa

Taking to her Instagram following the win, the actress paid her partner Giovanni an incredible tribute. "I'm dedicating this post to the most wonderful human ever, Giovanni," she wrote.

"The person who was there everyday with me for four months, who knows truly what this journey has been for me, the reason why I have become confident within myself. He came into my world and brought the best out of me. I cannot thank him enough for all the work and effort to make me become the dancer that I am today."

Rose's break won't last long, however. The BBC confirmed to HELLO! this week that the actress is expected to return to Albert Square in the new year.

"Rose is returning to film with EastEnders in the New Year," they said, before adding: "Rose has no intention to quit EastEnders."
