The pair danced a jive to Step Into Christmas by Elton John, and received great praise from judges, Craig Revel-Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Anton Du Beke.

The 36-year-old who is married to comedian Chris Ramsey, hosts the incredibly successful podcast, Sh**ged, Married, Annoyed alongside her husband.

Chris competed in Strictly Come Dancing in 2019, coming in second place in the competition. Rosie was adamant to beat Chris’ first ever score, and she did - scoring a 39 for her dance. She received a nine from Craig, and three 10’s from Motsi, Shirley and Anton.

Rosie competed against Girls Aloud member Nicola Roberts (partnered with Giovanni Perniece), Gavin and Stacey star Larry Lamb (partnered with Nadiya Bychkova), radio presenter Rickie Haywood-Williams (partnered with Luba Mushtuk), presenter George Webster and actress Alexandra Mardell (partnered with Kai Widdrington).
