The actress who won the BBC One dancing competition took a break from her daytime show to focus solely on her preparation for Strictly Come Dancing.

Last year, her character went to visit a friend and left Albert Square.

Rose lifted the Glitterball trophy with professional partner Giovanni Pernice, indicating that her break from acting paid off.
