Holly Willoughby called out for ‘awkward’ comment to Strictly’s Rose Ayling-Ellis as ITV This Morning viewers point out gaffe

This Morning viewers were quick to flock to Twitter to point out a mistake in a comment Holly Willoughby made to Rose Ayling-Ellis.

The Strictly Come Dancing star appeared on the ITV show alongside dance partner Giovanni Pernice.

The winners of the BBC One dance competition have been reunited ahead of the show’s live tour which kicks off later this month.

Chatting to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Rose and Giovanni relived the moment they lifted the Glitterball trophy during Strictly’s grand final last month.

They were also asked about the upcoming tour with Rose saying: “It’s not so intense because we won’t be doing new dances, we’ll be doing old dances. But I can still enjoy the experience of Strictly, but it’s nice and slow.”

“It’s not the pressure of 11 million people watching, it will be more relaxed,” Giovanni added.

Rose then said again she misses dancing: “I actually really missed dancing during Christmas. I don’t want to forget anything, sometimes I practice like, ‘I don’t want to forget this!’ So I’m there pointing my feet.”

Phillip then asked Couples’ Choice dance where they won praise and had viewers in tears as they dance in silence.

“Yeah, I think it would be weird for us not to do it,” Rose said with Giovanni adding: “It was such a special moment. It’s such an important dance, it’s a statement.

“So doing it in an arena with 10,000 people live and to stop the music there would be quite spectacular. It’s one of the most beautiful things we’ve done on Strictly, so we both want to do it so much.”

Rose then joked: “I hope no one will eat crisps by the side!”

But it was Holly’s response that got This Morning viewers talking.

“You will be able to hear a pin drop in that arena, it was a bit of magic on TV,” she said.

@Wils0n18 tweeted: “Well that was awkward Holly, telling Rose she won’t be able to hear a pin drop in the audience #ThisMorning.”

“I can’t believe Holly just told Rose ‘you won’t hear a pin drop’ how insensitive #ThisMorning,” @Go1dfinch said.

@TraylorHolmes wrote: “Holly telling Rose Ayling-Ellis she won’t be able to hear a pin drop in the arena on the tour #ThisMorning.”

Others tuning in to watch the interview were disappointed with a camera gaffe.

@GaynorMarland said: “Interviewing Rose and cutting the BSL lady out? Basically you indirectly discriminated against her amd the audience that look to her to promote their inclusion within society. So ignorant #thismorning@itv.com.”

“#thismorning lovely to see Rose and Giovanni on This Morning… It’s a shame that the camera angles are mostly cutting off Rose’s signing though,” @Lauraclifton1 tweeted.

@oyenry wrote: “I think it would help if the @thismorning camera crew would shown Rose’s hands when she’s talking, rather than panning into her face? #ThisMorning.”

“They should have had Rose’s interpreter on in the corner of the screen like their last interview #ThisMorning,” @Crysss_x suggested.
