Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice has celebrated his history-making perfect score with Rose Ayling-Ellis from Saturday night’s show, dubbing it ‘one of the most rewarding moments of my career’.
On the latest episode of Strictly, which marked the return of the spooky Halloween Week, Giovanni and Rose performed a stunning Tango to Shivers by Ed Sheeran, with their routine telling the story of an evil ice queen.
The pair earned four 10s from judges Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke, marking the earliest a couple has ever achieved a perfect score on the BBC One series.
In a post shared on Instagram, Giovanni – who became overcome with emotion when they received their scores on the night – emphasised just how much the achievement meant to him.
The professional dancer, who’s been on Strictly since 2015, paid homage to his partner Rose, describing her as an ‘inspiration’.
‘One of the most rewarding moment [sic] of my career… and is all down to you @rose.a.e ! You are an inspiration.. a super star!’ he said in his caption on Instagram.Credit: Original article published here.
