    On Saturday night's action-packed Strictly the pair will dance a Quickstep to Love Is An Open Door from hit musical Frozen.

    Last week the couple stunned viewers as they incorporated a silent moment in their Couples Choice routine to Symphony by Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson.

    Rose is the first ever deaf contestant to compete in the show and has explained before that she is able to dance to the music by counting to the beat and feeling the vibrations of the music.

    People in the studio are asked to not clap while Rose is performing so she can still feel the beat of the music.

    Last week they had a silent ten second in their dance so viewers and the judges would understand how Rose feels when she's dancing and how she learns the routine.

    They were scored 39 points out of a possible 40 as judge Craig Revel Horwood deducted a point for technical reasons.

    Rose has continued to impress the judges and fans throughout the competition as she was the first contestant to earn 40 point this series, as well as being the first 40 in Strictly history.

    The performance brought many people to tears including judges and Gogglebox's Jenny Newby as she said: "This is the bit for deaf people."

    Rose and Giovanni appeared on This Morning on Friday where she spoke about the 'special moment'.

    She explained how hard deaf people have to work and how hard she's worked during her time on the show.

    Rose said: "It was a special moment for me because a lot of the time you always see a deaf person getting on well and doing what is normal but you don't see how much hard work goes behind it.

    "So I think the silent moment was to show this is what I do when I dance. This is the amount of work I do. But I still do it with a smile on my face."
