The 27-year-old EastEnders star donned a seriously bright mini dress from Zara featuring a neon green and red floral print to visit the BBC studios. Emerging alongside Giovanni, the duo grinned from ear-to-ear as they posed together after the show. Rose teamed her vibrant bodycon number with a pair of opaque tights and some knee-high suede boots with a chunky heel.

Rose's Zara dress is a steal at £29.99

Rose's lovely Zara dress costs just £29.99 and is still in stock in most sizes – but we predict it's going to fly off the virtual shelves.

Loving bright florals for winter nights? How about River Island's 'Green Floral Tie Neck Mini Dress', which retails at just £34, and would look perfect with tights and boots just like Rose's outfit.

Giovanni said: "I have been in the show long enough to be ready to challenge myself and in Rose I had the perfect partner to do that.
