Giovanni later revealed how he trains the 26-year-old star.

The 31-year-old Italian explained, “Well, obviously it’s very different, we are now more focused on muscle memory than on music.

“Some people sometimes associate movement with the lyrics of the song, but unfortunately we can’t.

“It’s all about muscle memory, so she still counts in her brain and still remembers what to do.

“It’s a lot more difficult.”

Rose added, “It’s quite a lot, but I’ve noticed that people really rely on music to help them remember what’s next. I do not do that.”
