With the Strictly Come Dancing final looming over the final three celebrities and the race to be crowned champion of the ballroom, microphone footage from Saturday’s semi-finals has been released. Favourites to win the competition, Rose Ayling-Ellis and partner Giovanni Pernice, performed a beautiful Waltz on Saturday night, with the BBC show’s pro dancer calling the EastEnders star “beautiful” as their performance came to an end.

Since the competition began, the pair have stunned the viewers with not only their performances but with their incredibly close friendship.

However, Giovanni has once again fuelled rumours he is smitten with Rose, despite her being in a long term relationship with her boyfriend, Sam.

In released microphone footage, Giovanni was captured whispering the word “beautiful” into Rose’s ear repeatedly as they ended their Waltz.

Waltzing to Ellie Goulding’s How Long Will I Love You, Rose giggled with happiness whilst Giovanni praised and complimented the EastEnders star.

Rumours of their romance have been rife since the start of their Strictly journey, with viewers gushing weekly over their extraordinary bond chemistry.

Giovanni’s “beautiful” comment sent viewers into meltdown and took to Twitter to express their love for the pair.

“They’re surely one of the best partnerships we’ve seen on Strictly! Xx.”

@oodlesofpaper commented: “The look! They giggle! Said everything without saying anything! Don’t think I could adore @RoseAylingEllis and @pernicegiovanni anymore!”

@LornaBaker20 replied: “I do want them to be together after Strictly has finished. I can see the chemistry!”

@rose_gio_ swooned: “These two people make me so happy, and I can’t describe it, their reaction was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!” (sic)

Of course, the pair remain close friends and Strictly partners with Rose in a long-term relationship with her other half Sam. 

Their Waltz on Saturday night was scored 39 out of a possible 40, with the judges being blown away by Rose’s progression throughout the competition.
