Huge moment for the deaf community

IT has been hailed as the television moment of the year – and a triumph for the deaf community.

Strictly viewers were moved to tears as Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26, and pro partner Giovanni Pernice danced in silence on Saturday night during their Couple’s Choice routine, which scored 39 out of 40.

Now campaigners hope it could lead to greater equality for disabled people — as well as better under-standing of deafness.

Former Strictly contestant and Invictus Games medallist JJ Chal-mers said EastEnders star Rose’s dance would help “get us to where we want to be” with regards to attitudes around disability”.

Speaking yesterday, ex-Royal Marine JJ, 34, said: “We are making massive inroads to where we need to be in society and within broadcast, and that is wonderful. People like Rose will get us where we want to be.”

He added that it’s “nice to see people talking about her disability, yes, but also being able to look beyond it”.
