Strictly Come Dancing features its very first deaf contestant, Rose Ayling, and fans are taking to social media to praise her and show support.
Fans of Strictly Come Dancing have taken to social media to praise the show for featuring its very first deaf contestant, Rose Ayling-Ellis. A few weeks ago, the show premiered the long-awaited season 19 and revealed all 15 celebrities and their dancing partners. Like last year, there are still some restrictions in place for the contestants to ensure that the show can continue on during the aftermath of COVID-19. This essentially means that all the celebrities were assigned their partners before the show even premiered.
In the opening group number to Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love,” the Strictly professionals gave fans insight into just what they can look forward to in the upcoming season, as well as reintroducing well-known presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, and judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, and Shirley Ballas. The new Strictly Come Dancing season also welcomed a brand new judge, a former professional dancer on the show, Anton Du Beke, replacing Dancing With The Stars judge Bruno Tonioli. While all of this is exciting for fans of the show, seeing new contestant Rose perform on the stage is something everyone is looking forward to.
