This Morning viewers left distracted by Strictly winner Giovanni Pernice’s appearance today

Giovanni's dapper look won over viewers

This Morning viewers couldn’t get enough of Giovanni Pernice and Rose Ayling-Ellis today.

The Strictly Come Dancing pro dancer appeared alongside his dance partner Rose on Tuesday’s episode of the ITV show.

Rose, 27, spoke openly about becoming the show’s first-ever deaf winner.

She also opened up about her fight for sign language to be more recognised and widely used.

Rose told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: “It’s been recognised as a language, but it’s not been official. That becomes such a big problem… sign language needs to be more appreciated… It’s got such a rich history.

“I have heard so many stories about deaf people going to a doctor appointment and they ask for an interpreter and they don’t refer them an interpreter…

“So they end up needing their child to translate, or a family member. That shouldn’t be. Because it’s not an official language, we can’t do anything about it.”

Rose went on to explain that she’s currently working on plans to get MPs to debate the issue in parliament.

The star went on to share that she hopes her place on Strictly will help raise awareness around the issue.

While Rose chatted about issues close to her heart, many viewers rushed to Twitter.
