Although it certainly wasn’t a relaxing dip for poor Rose!

Rose Ayling-Ellis takes a dip with her Strictly co-stars

Rose, 27, was joined by her fellow Strictly stars as headed for a dip in the river Rivelin.

Ahead of taking to the cold waters, Sara Davies shared a snap of Rose’s mishap.

The actress had managed to fall into the river with her trainers on.

I’ve got a soaking wet shoe

Panning the camera to show Rose’s feet, the Dragon’s Den star said: “Whose feet are these? What happened?”

Rose sported a single red sandal on her right foot.

The star explained: “I slipped and fell in the water, so I’ve got a soaking wet shoe.”

Despite the accident, Rose and her co-stars appeared to have a great time.

The group – including former Gogglebox star Kate Bottley –  shared several snaps as they enjoyed the chilly activity.

Sara wrote on her profile: “So we had another wild swimming outing today! @revkatebottley saw I’d taken the gang last week and messaged to say she’d love to host us while we were in Sheffield so we’ve had a great morning!
