TRAILBLAZING Strictly champ Rose Ayling-Ellis will quit her EastEnders role within months, claim cast on the BBC soap.

Deaf Rose, 27, is tipped for TV and film stardom after she and dance partner Giovanni Pernice lifted the Glitterball trophy.


Execs and producers are already lining up high-profile projects for the actress, who has played the soap’s Frankie Lewis since last year.

Her character has been written out until next month when she is expected to return.

But cast and crew are expecting Rose to get itchy feet.

The Sun revealed last week that the Beeb was lining up a drama with deaf character in the lead role with a view to casting Rose. There are reports she could target Hollywood.

She and Italian star Giovanni pipped baker John Whaite and Johannes Radebe to win on Saturday night. Giovanni later posed in bed with the trophy.

Meanwhile Rose is keen to combine her acting career with helping the deaf community after shattering stereotypes during her stint on the dancefloor.

She said: “The conversations has been around ‘How do deaf people hear the music?’

“Well now we know let’s move on and talk about more important issues.

“One in four hearing people have mental health issues, but one in two deaf people have mental health issues.

“The suicide rate is quite high, because the mental health services aren’t even accessible.

“You go to your therapist but they don’t have interpreters there, or when you go to the doctors they don’t provide you with an interpreter.

“Or it’s not very private so people just avoid going. People avoid getting help because it’s not accessible. Everyone just does the bare minimum and that’s really annoying. I don’t want the bare minimum anymore. I want more.”

Last night EastEnders tried to play down rumours of Rose leaving.

A spokeswoman insisted: “There is no truth in this.

“Rose has no intention to quit EastEnders and is very much looking forward to filming again in the New Year.”
