Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice in tears after history-making dance with partner Rose

Strictly Come Dancing stars Giovanni Pernice and Rose Ayling-Ellis made history on the show on Saturday night, and there was plenty of tears.

Giovanni couldn’t contain his emotions, as he learned he and EastEnders star Rose had scored 40 points from the judges, as they danced the Tango to Shivers by Ed Sheeran.

It was the highest score of the series so far, but also the earliest mark of 40 ever in the show’s history.

Strictly confirmed this, writing on Twitter : “The first 40 of the series for Rose and Gio and the earliest 40 ever in the history of #Strictly! Giovanni is STILL the King of #Halloween.”

As the scores came in, both Rose and Giovanni screamed and jumped around, before hugging it out thrilled with their marks.

Giovanni then placed his face in his hands, overcome with emotion as Rose supportively placed her arm around him.

As Claudia asked him about the dance, he wiped away the tears and shared how happy he was to have done well on Halloween yet again – with Rose equally as thrilled to have made Strictly history.

Elsewhere on the show, AJ Odudu and her dance partner Kai Widdrington fuelled romance rumours yet again, after their very passionate performance on Saturday night.

The TV presenter danced the Viennese Waltz for Halloween Week, to Ariana Grande’s hit Dangerous Woman.

Kai did nothing to stop the rumours swirling by saying he would kiss her on the show, after her own nephew asked him why he hadn’t in a cute VT.

Strictly fans were recently left convinced AJ and professional dance partner Kai were dating, after they looked cosy in recent performances.

Now, their latest routine has only left more viewers thinking they are romantically involved despite the pair appearing to squash rumours earlier this week.

During their VT, AJ was shown speaking to her nieces and nephews about the show, and her partnership with Kai.

Her nephew then blurted out: “Why don’t you just kiss her?” leading to the pair laughing hysterically.

Host Claudia Winkleman then brought up the moment as they prepared to hear their scores from the judges, after their stunning routine.

She urged: “If you want to kiss at any point now… come on Kai. Kai, it’s the right time.”

Kai himself and AJ looked a little awkward, while they placed their arms around each other and laughed it off.

But Kai then fuelled rumours, saying he would kiss AJ, joking: “I know it is, we’ll do it after the scores,” to which AJ burst out laughing.

Strictly Come Dancing airs Saturdays, with the results show on Sundays on BBC One.
