Despite being on tour, Rose went on to confess she would have agreed to do Strictly for a further ten weeks had the opportunity presented itself. "It's funny, Strictly is so full-on, but when it stops it becomes... boring," she said. "If they'd asked me to do another ten weeks, I'd have said yes."

Asked whether she will continue to dance in the future, Rose answered: "I hope so. I have to work out how, but I love it so much I don't want to stop."

Rose and Giovanni share a close bond

Since their historic win on the BBC show, the professional dancer made the ultimate commitment to Rose by getting a tattoo.

Giovanni, 31, recently unveiled his tribute to Rose and their time in the competition on his Instagram Stories, showing off his freshly-inked wrist which features a Glitterball trophy with 'SCD' written through it and two shining stars on either side.

Giovanni's new tattoo inspired by his Strictly win with Rose

Written underneath is the date, "18-12-2021", which represents the show's final when Giovanni and Rose were crowned the 2021 winners.

Their recent win on Strictly has gone down in history, highlighting the needs and awareness for the deaf community. This year, the nationwide tour has a registered British Sign Language interpreter for every performance, making this the "biggest ever BSL accessible arena tour" in the UK.
