Strictly's Giovanni Pernice cuddles up to EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis as they leave It Takes Two together

STRICTLY star Giovanni Pernice cuddled up to his dancing partner Rose Ayling-Ellis as they left the show's studios last night.

The pair thrilled fans yesterday as they discussed taking home the earliest 40 in Strictly history for their Tango to Ed Sheeran's Shivers on It Takes Two.

And after their appearance, the dancing duo happily posed for photos outside the studios smiling and with their arms wrapped around each other's waist.

EastEnders actress Rose stunned in a black velvet high-neck dress that featured ruching along the side and a thigh-high slit.

The 26-year-old teamed the number with metallic heels and gold hoop earrings while her hair fell in a sleek style.

Pro dancer Giovanni complemented Rose's style in a cream three-piece suit with a white shirt, blue patterned tie and leather shoes.

Earlier in the day, the pair were pictured arriving to the studio straight from training and clad in their dancing gear.

Their appearance comes after Rose had fans sobbing on Saturday as she landed the first perfect 40 of the series.

The EastEnders star, who is the show's first ever deaf contestant, and her partner Giovanni were lost for words as the judges handed them four 10s.

The 26-year-old leapt into a stunned Giovanni's arms after it was revealed they are the first couple to achieve full marks by week six.

One fan said of their Tango to Ed Sheeran's Shivers: "Simultaneously shaking, sobbing and screaming!"

Another posted: "Rose and Giovanni, absolutely wonderful and definitely a perfect 10."

A third said: "Rose is perfection and I bloody LOVE HER."

In rehearsals Rose's soap co-star Danny Dyer dropped into the studio.

The cockney geezer liked what he saw, saying: "The Tango it's going to blow you away. It's very fitting for Halloween. That's powerful. It's a 10, all day long."

He wasn't the only celeb backing the pair.

Ed Sheeran recorded a special message for Rose after learning she was dancing to his latest single.

Stunned Rose squealed as the superstar singer-songwriter thanked her for using his track.

Judge Anton Du Beke said the routine, in which Rose played an ice queen, was "perfect", while Craig Revel Horwood said "you smashed it, darling."

Motsi Mabuse called it "one amazing dance" and "out of this world", and Shirley Ballas described Rose as "brilliant".
