The reigning Strictly champion headed to the home of close friend Luba Mushtuk, where the pair enjoyed a large bowl of pasta together. Luba shared a small clip on her Instagram Stories where Rose lifted some of the spaghetti towards her mouth while flashing a small grin at the camera. The sumptuous meal looked delicious and it included plenty of veggies and a tomato sauce.

The small video also gave a glimpse inside Luba's pad, which was decorated with minimalist white furniture, with a small vase of flowers adding a pop of colour.

The professional dancer also had several house plants and candles decorating her window sills.

The two ladies currently have a bit of spare time on their hands with Rose having left EastEnders, and although Strictly is currently airing, Luba has not been paired with a celebrity this year.

Rose and Luba enjoyed some time together

The duo became close friends during Rose's time on the BBC 1 show last year, and still regularly hang out with one another, whether it be for spa days or dinner dates.

The actress is recently back from a trip to the Maldives, and during the trip she had the opportunity to steer a boat out on the open waters.
