Rose Ayling Ellis was seen dancing with Giovanni Pernice, her winner, during rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing.
Rose, 27, EastEnders actress, won the hearts and Glitterball trophy of Strictly winners.
Rose, 31, was not able to dance with Giovanni, an Italian dancer. Rose was seen dancing with another partner before the tour's launch on Thursday 20th January.
In this clip, Janette Manrara posted it to Janette's Instagram Story. She can be seen dancing along with John Waite, Great British Bake Off runner-up.
Janette, 38 years old, filming the dancers as they perform alongside other rehearsing. She asks behind the camera, "What's actually happening?"
She exclaimed, "The couples are all going mad," as she panted the camera around to show Max George and Tilly Ramsay dancing hand in hand with Rhys Stephenson.
Janette said, "They've all switched around." It's the most crazy partner swap ever!
Then, she began to judge their moves and told Rhys, a TV presenter: "Oh Rhys! What a lift!" John, too!
Rose has now revealed that she plans to make her fame a good thing. She is backing legislation to make British Sign Language official in England.
Big Issue asked her: "I support it because this language is mine." It is very sad that my country doesn’t see it this way. This means that we don’t get the respect and language we deserve.
"BSL is not considered an official language in this country. This is absurd. It is a rich, beautiful language that has its own structure, grammar, and slang. It's even got accents.
It's all about protecting the language. Signing has a long history. We've come a long way. In the past, signing was not something that was encouraged in schools for deaf children.
She said, "There are so much traumas in our past, but also such rich history. It will be very emotional for us if it becomes an official language, as we have been fighting for it for so many years. Many people are unaware of how hard the deaf community has fought, despite the huge interest in BSL.
Rose also spoke out about her pride in being an example for the deaf community.
"I am from the hearing world. She said that people who were raised in the deaf community have role models, but these are not widely known. "So, I'm glad that deaf children have someone to look up too - it's me.
"I watch videos of little girls dancing and staring at me on the television. Some have begun to wear their hair up in order to show their hearing aids. They have children at school asking them what the sign means. It suddenly became very cool to be deaf. That's what I love about it for children. It's cool to be deaf! Amazing!"
