The Strictly Come Dancing winner could barely contain her excitement as she showed off a ginormous bottle of her favourite drink, Aperol Spritz. In fact, the bottle was so big it appeared to be the entire length of Rose's torso! Unable to wipe the smile from her face, Rose gleefully posed with the orange-coloured, zesty aperitif in her hands as she sat on her sofa.

The 27-year-old – who became the first deaf contestant to win the ballroom competition – enjoyed a cosy night at the movies on Wednesday, heading to a luxury cinema hall with a plus one to watch a film with subtitles.

Rose's bottle was almost as big as her

Joking about having the room to themselves whilst a trailer of Death on the Nile played on in the background, Rose remarked: "The perks of English-spoken subtitles film is having the whole cinema to yourselves."

It's not known who accompanied Rose, but it's likely that her boyfriend Samuel Arnold was with her. The couple, who tend to keep their relationship away from the spotlight, have been together for over seven years.

Like Rose, Samuel is also deaf, and although they like to keep their romance private, the Strictly star has shared several sweet snaps of the two of them on Instagram during their many travels.

Back in 2020, she penned a sweet but funny tribute to her beloved boyfriend on their anniversary. Alongside a photo of the two of them on a trip, she wrote: "Six years we been together and I still don't find you annoying," followed by a love heart emoji.
