It’s hard not to remember Rose Ayling-Ellis and partner Giovanni Pernice’s history-making Strictly win at the end of last year. The Eastender’s actress was the first deaf contestant on the show, and fans were quick to praise the series for being the most diverse final Strictly had ever seen.

But now Giovanni is making headlines again, with his adorable new body addition and tribute to his shared victory with Rose. The 32-year-old professional dancer just took to his Instagram stories to share a new tattoo, a Strictly Glitterball trophy complete with the date the pair won the series.

He paired the photo with an audio clip of Queen’s hit ‘We Are the Champions’ to highlight their win, and tagged Rose in the highlight. Cute!

The new tattoo comes as Rose and Giovanni reunite as dance partners for the first time this year ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing live tour. As the tour kicked off, Rose took to her own Instagram to share her excitement about the shows, and especially the incredible outfits she gets to wear. In a recent post, the star wrote: “The first show done and it went well. I have fallen in love with this outfit so much!”

A few famous faces were also quick to comment on the post, including TV presenter and Journalist Stacey Dooley, who wrote: “That outfit I'm DONE 🔥🔥.” Fellow Strictly contestant and live tour cast member Tilly Ramsay also took to the comment section, simply posting four eye heart emojis. Same, tbh.

The Strictly tour will also feature some of the latest series contestants, including Eastender’s Maisie Smith and her partner Kai Widdrington, TV presenter Rhys Stephenson and partner Nancy Xu, and series runners up John Whaite and Johannes Radebe.

And while we *wish* we were taking a trip to one of the shows, we can’t help wondering if Rose will be hitting the tattoo parlours anytime soon for some matching ink?
