Strictly’s silent dance named TV moment of the year

The 10 seconds has been named as Heat magazine’s TV moment of the year.

Strictly’s 10 seconds of silence during a contemporary dance performance by Rose Ayling-Ellis and partner Giovanni Pernice has been named as Heat magazine’s TV moment of the year.

The actor, who is the first deaf contestant in the show’s history, and her professional partner paused the music and danced in silence as a tribute to the deaf community.

Ayling-Ellis said the silent section had shown those watching how hard deaf people have to work every day while Pernice admitted he had found dancing without music challenging even for a few seconds.

The couple said they were “very grateful” that the dance that had meant so much to them both had received the accolade from Heat magazine in its annual Unmissables awards.

“This dance meant so much to us and we are so proud that we could show a glimpse into Rose’s world and represent the deaf community in this way,” they said.

“We will both remember this ‘unmissable moment’ forever.”

The awards, which are decided by a panel of experts, also saw accolades for It’s a Sin, which won TV drama of the year.

Years and Years singer Olly Alexander, who played Ritchie Tozer in the series, was named actor of the year.

It’s a Sin tells the story of a group of young friends living in London through the HIV/Aids crisis in the 1980s.

Its writer Russell T Davies said: “I’ve been making dramas for 30 years now and I don’t think anything will mean as much as this one – because of the people we lost, the people who survived, the people who fought and anyone who’s ever given money to this cause or helped in any way, it’s so amazing to have a chance to recognise that.
