Strictly Come Dancing star Rose Ayling-Ellis was hit with a major setback this week as she revealed her hearing aid had broken.

The EastEnders favourite, who is partnered with Giovanni Pernice, danced the cha-cha-cha on this weekend's show.

But she confessed their training had been a struggle at times due to her broken hearing aid.

After their dance – which saw them gain a score of 27 – the duo spoke to host Claudia Winkleman in the studio.

Rose said: "Really, it's normal life for deaf people, our hearing aids break all the time – but it was the wrong time because we were doing the cha-cha-cha."

Giovanni added: "We were laughing about it because she has to feel the level, so it was like speaking to a speaker all the time."

Rose explained that, normally, she can feel the volume of her voice but with her hearing aid broken, she was speaking a bit louder than usual.

She laughed: "With my hearing aid broken, Gio went home with a headache!"

Rose and Gio were handed scores of seven, six, six and eight from judges Craig Revel-Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.

They danced to the song Raspberry Beret by Prince & The Revolution, and she got into the zone by wearing a dazzling outfit complete with sparkling tassels and, of course, a bright pink beret.

Sadly, this week's score was a steep dive from last week, when each judge handed them a nine and they got an impressive total of 36.

This week's show got off to a somewhat sad start, as hosts Tess Daly and Claudia explained they were two dancers down.

Robert Webb was forced to pull out of the competition due to a medical condition, while Ugo Monye was advised to give this week a miss due to a back issue.

Despite this news, Strictly confirmed that another celebrity would be eliminated this week.

Last week saw the exit of former Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn and her pro partner Gorka Marquez.

And the previous week, actress Nina Wadia and her partner Neil Jones became the first to be eliminated.

Although Rose got a lower score this week, it doesn't look like she has anything to worry about.

She's currently one of the favourites to win the show, with William Hill giving her odds of 11/8, while Betfair, Bet365 and Paddypower all have her at 6/4.

Strictly's next elimination show airs Sunday night at 7.10pm on BBC One
