According to Strictly Come Dancing host Claudia Winkleman, EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis cannot train properly when it rains because the drops interfere with the vibrations in her chest. Strictly Come Dancing deaf contestant Rose Ayling-Ellis cannot train properly when it rains because the drops interfere with the vibrations in her chest.
Despite not being able to hear the music she is dancing to, the EastEnders star has been wowing fans with her stunning routines alongside Giovanni Pernice.
When they danced to Symphony by Clean Bandit for 10 seconds, they created one of the most unforgettable moments in Strictly history.
Claudia Winkleman, the host of Strictly Come Dancing, has now revealed some of the show’s unique behind-the-scenes challenges. Rose, 27, has to deal with a variety of issues on a weekly basis, including the fact that she can’t rehearse her routines if it’s raining outdoors because she relies on feeling the music.
“Rose is great,” Claudia said. Rose has a genuine sense of humour, which I admire. I hope that was clear. She’s also a fantastic dancer. The fact that she is deaf is far down the list of Rose’s charm’s extraordinary qualities.
“However, it’s a lot of fun to figure things out.” She finds it difficult to practice when it’s really raining, for example, because the vibrations in her chest are disrupted. ‘What do they do at schools?’ I asked. ‘How do people spend their days at work?’ I was completely unaware. The fact that she used to have to see Gio’s face every time she danced, but now she can dance without seeing him. “She’s amazing.” The 49-year-old host also said that she has learnt basic sign language in order to communicate with Rose more efficiently, including how to criticize the judges if they give her poor comments.
“We’ve all taken awareness training, and I’m trying to learn as much sign language as I can – not for on-screen use, but for when I’m speaking with her off-camera,” she stated. Although I haven’t had to use it yet, the first thing I wanted to learn was how to say, ‘The judges are horrible.'” In former Great British Bake Off champion John Whaite and professional dancer Johannes Radebe, this year’s Strictly includes the first all-male partnership.
Claudia, who co-hosts the ballroom show with Tess Daly, says that the pairing and Rose’s participation simply demonstrates how much the Strictly team goes to assure groups in the United Kingdom. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
