‘There’s already talk of her work in movies’: Strictly winner Rose Ayling-Ellis is set to become a millionaire and one of the BBC’s biggest stars.
Rose Ayling-Ellis is set to become one of the BBC’s biggest stars after winning the Strictly Come Dancing Saturday night.
The 27-year-old The EastEnders actress, who was the show’s first-ever deaf contestant, has been the number one runner since the series began as she stirred viewers with her dances — despite her inability to hear the music.
Now, Rose is set for the big things, and could easily earn £1m in 2022, after impressing television executives both in Britain and around the world.

BBC chiefs are said to be planning a documentary about her life and career and are keen to make her a “poster girl” for the channel.
A source told The Sun: “The sky is the limit for a rose, regardless of the outcome. BBC directors were amazed at how she behaved herself.
She is incredibly inspiring to everyone – not just the deaf community – and she has succeeded in capturing people with her charm and courage. This could be the start of some pretty big things for Rose.
Amazing: The 27-year-old EastEnders actress, who was the show’s first-ever deaf contestant, has been the frontrunner since the series began as she swayed viewers with her dances.
Meanwhile, agent Barry Toms, who has 50 years in the entertainment industry, told the Daily Star: ‘The world is under her feet. It could earn more than £1 million in 2022.
With a quiet agent who isn’t in him for a quick buck, she’ll easily earn it and she’ll be worth every penny out of it, and there’s already talk of her doing movies – I’ve heard she’s being offered roles.
I would love to have a client like Rose. The audience loves her. It’s very normal. You don’t feel like there’s an agenda in what you’re doing.”
MailOnline contacted Rose representatives for comment.
Rose landed her breakout role on the series EastEnders last year, playing Frankie Lewis on the BBC series.

After her victory, the actress said to Giovanni: “I just want to say that you are very cool. It made me believe in myself more than I believe in myself.
You are a great teacher, but not only that… you are a great friend.
We’ve been through so much, and I just want you to know no matter what happens, no matter how busy we are, I want you to know that you always have a part of my heart. You really did it.’
Giovanni, 31, has also enjoyed her success on the BBC programme.
‘I must say thank you to this beautiful young lady who made all my dreams come true,’ he said to Rose. You’ve become the best, best dancer, best mate I could ask for. You’re a dream, Rose, you’re really a dream. So, thank you for everything.
