Strictly's Rose Ayling-Ellis scores first 40 of the series as she's backed by Ed Sheeran and Danny Dyer

STRICTLY'S Rose Ayling-Ellis had fans sobbing tonight 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 Pernice 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.
