But on Saturday she had a much more personal reason to celebrate as she marked the birthday of her mum, Donna.

Rose looked amazing in a slinky black dress that was covered in cherry blossom petals, while her mum rocked a similar floral dress.

The photo also showed off Rose's new hair transformation, that she proudly revealed on Thursday.

Rose might have another reason to celebrate in the coming weeks, as she and dance partner Giovanni Pernice were recently announced as one of the six nominees for Virgin Media's Must-See Moment Award at the upcoming awards ceremony for their iconic dance.

They performed a moving Couple's Choice to Zara Larsson's song Symphony, which left the audience and viewers at home in tears. The duo paid respect and raised awareness for the deaf community when the music cut as they continued to dance in silence.
