“I didn’t want Rose and Giovanni to do the Couples Choice because I don’t think the silent moment will have the same impact again BUT it’s a chance for Rose to really smash the technique! AND I know I’ll cry. #Strictly,” wrote one fan.

Another said: “Bit surprised Rose & Giovanni are doing their couple’s choice again. I thought they would have the same opinion as Jay & Aliona did with their Jive in that they couldn’t do it again. #Strictly #ItTakesTwo.”

Some fans were more positive about the choice, with one remarking: “Rose & Gio are doing their couple’s choice again!!! That makes me so happy because it’s the dance that really shows their special connection omg it’s so beautiful.”
