Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Ayling-Ellis has won the hearts of the nation during her time on the BBC show, and it looks like she is set for US stardom once the series wraps.

The Eastenders actress, 27, who is partnered up with professional dancer Giovanni Pernice, is bookies favourite to lift the Glitterball, and a certain TV network across the pond has apparently been following her every move.

Rose has reportedly been a big hit with CBS viewers, and the platform happens to be the most-watched commercial broadcaster in America. Not too shabby.

In an interview with The Mirror, she said: ‘I thought, “Oh it’s very nice” but didn’t realise the show went everywhere. We’ve reached America!’

Rose and Giovanni, 31, have performed a number of spectacular dances so far, but their couple’s choice to Symphony, which celebrated the Deaf community, left the judges and viewers at home in tears.

Judge Anton Du Beke, who has been on Strictly since the very beginning, described the number as ‘the greatest thing’ he’s ever seen.

‘Me being on Strictly has shown that deaf people are more capable than other ­people believe,’ Rose added.

It looks like CBS might have some competition as the BBC are also looking to have the star following the same path as presenter Stacey Dooley.

A source told the Daily Mail: ‘Rose is a star and is exactly what the BBC need. The nation has fallen in love with her.

‘Everything about her is so charming and lovely.’

Giovanni recently raved about the star and expressed how he feels like a ‘different person’ since being partnered with her.

Speaking to the Radio Times, he said: ‘I feel that with Rose, I have a person I can talk to, and she can listen to me, and give me positivity. And that’s what I need.’

Their latest performance, a Paso Doble to California Dreamin’ by Sia, scored 33 points out of 40.

Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7.20pm on BBC One.
