Strictly's Rose Ayling-Ellis left with nasty injury just one day before crucial semi-final dance with Giovanni

STRICTLY Come Dancing's Rose Ayling-Ellis has ended up bruised after picking up an injury in rehearsals.

The EastEnders actress, 27, ended up bashing her hip while attempting a move where she sailed through the air into Giovanni Pernice's arms.

It comes as the pair gear up for another crunch show – with survival this week securing them a place in the finals.

The pair explained the rehearsal room mishap after pro dancer Giovanni urged her: "I will catch you, just do it, just go.”

However, it didn't go according to plan with Rose revealing on Strictly: It Takes Two: "I’ve got a big bruise on my hip."

Giovanni explained: "It’s one of those that you have to nail it. Something can go very wrong if you can’t catch her."

The pair are going to dance twice on tomorrow night's live show as the contest gets yet more difficult.

Rose and Giovanni will do the Argentine tango to Eduardo Rovira's A Evaristo Carriego then the waltz to Ellie Goulding's How Long Will I Love You.
