Strictly’s Rose Ayling-Ellis works up a sweat in steamy rehearsal with Giovanni Pernice

STRICTLY Come Dancing's Rose Ayling-Ellis worked up a sweat as she heads into the show's semi-final with Giovanni Pernice.

The EastEnders actress, 27, was less than impressed with the sweaty result of her very sexy rehearsal with Giovanni ahead of tonight's semi-final.

They had to get very close to reenact the sexy Argentine tango, but Rose complained that Giovanni was very sweaty.

In a clip aired on It Takes Two, Giovanni is seen shouting at Rose to stop complaining about how sweaty he is.

"People would pay to touch this sweat," he yelled as Rose laughed in amusement.

He then rushed over to her, to embrace her close and added: "People would pay to be this close to me."

Their steamy rehearsal comes as Rose injured herself just one day before the semi-final.

Rose bashed her hip while attempting a move where she sailed through the air into Giovanni's arms.

The pair explained the rehearsal room mishap after pro dancer Giovanni urged her: "I will catch you, just do it, just go.”

However, it didn't go according to plan with Rose revealing on Strictly: It Takes Two: "I’ve got a big bruise on my hip."

Giovanni explained: "It’s one of those that you have to nail it. Something can go very wrong if you can’t catch her."

The pair are going to dance twice on tonight's live show as the contest gets yet more difficult.

Rose and Giovanni will do the Argentine tango to Eduardo Rovira's A Evaristo Carriego then the waltz to Ellie Goulding's How Long Will I Love You.

They will go up against fellow semi-finalists John Whaite and Johannes Radebe, AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington and Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu for a spot in the final next week.

Strictly has been lucky with injuries this year after a shaky start on the health front with Judi Love forced to pull out for a week after testing positive for Covid 19.

Actor and comedian Robert Webb later quit the competition – just days before the fourth live episode due to his ill health following major heart surgery.

Strictly Come Dancing returns tonight at the slightly later time of 7.05pm on BBC One.

Saturday's show will run for an hour and 20 minutes, before Michael McIntyre's The Wheel starts at 8.25pm.

One pair won't make it through the week leaving three couples to dance in the Strictly Come Dancing final.
