Strictly Come Dancing and EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26, has taken to Instagram to reassure her 91,000 followers about her broken hearing aid. The actress, who is Strictly’s first ever deaf contestant, sparked worries from her dance partner Giovanni Pernice, 31, during the week, after the device stopped working during training.
Fortunately, Rose has now shared a positive update on the situation, revealing she now has a new hearing aid ahead of this evening’s live show.
The star filmed her manicured hands opening a case which contained the device, writing alongside it: “Good news guys…
“I have a new hearing aid!
“Thank you NHS for the quick response,” the Strictly hopeful gratefully added.
It comes after Giovanni shared his concerns, as Rose couldn’t hear any of his instructions during rehearsals.
He said in view of his 525,000 Instagram followers on Wednesday: “Morning people, we have some news for you today.
“Tell them what happened,” the star told Rose.
Explaining further, Rose revealed: “This morning my hearing aid broke but I think it’s because I sweat so much it broke it.
“So I can’t hear anything at all.”
Giovanni then turned to the camera and exclaimed: “So, NHS, please be quick. We need it!”
Rose cheekily quipped: “It’s quite nice because I don’t have to hear his voice!”
Giovanni replied: “Yes, good luck to me! NHS, be quick!”

After trying to allow Rose to lip-read what he was saying without any success, the pair smiled, as Giovanni added: “Nope!”
Rose later told fans there was no reason to worry, as she re-posted Giovanni’s Instagram Story.
The star wrote: “Nobody need to panic, it’s a very normal life for deaf people.”
Rose recently informed Strictly fans about how deaf people experience music.
The Frankie Lewis star told BBC News: “It is a common misconception that deaf people can’t enjoy music.
“I have a hearing aid, so I pick up some of the music and I can hear the beat.
“I can hear someone singing, but I can’t identify exact words. I also feel the vibrations.”
Rose continued: “I will be focusing on reading my partner’s body language plus counting in my head, which will help me with timing.
“So for me it’s a combination of everything.”
