Ayling-Ellis, who is deaf, had been a fan-favourite throughout the series, with many viewers inspired by her participation on the show.

“@MOTSI_MABUSE did not look happy with results, thank God judges did not get the vote, best couple ever on @bbcstrictly love you @RoseAylingEllis @pernicegiovann1,” tweeted one person.
Another shared: “You can’t hide what you actually thought on Saturday Misti [sic]! Yr [sic] expression said it all. Super false eh!!!!”

Mabuse shut down the criticism on Twitter, posting: “Even after such an emotional and fantastic final, people still will find a way for hate! Imagine sitting in the living room and interpreting this?? It’s a shame!
“Thank you for all the love and support I received they override this comment by the thousands.”
Many of Mabuse’s fans had quickly jumped to her defence, with one writing: “You just looked emotional to me!
“You are the most positive and encouraging of all the judges! People always have to find something to moan about.”
