Zoe Ball tattoo: Heartbreaking meaning behind rose inking

Strictly Come Dancing’s Zoe Ball has left fans questioning her tattoo [ITV]

Zoe Ball has been presenting Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two since Claudia Winkleman left the show to host the main event alongside Tess Daly on Saturday and Sunday night. 

Fatboy Slim’s ex wife Zoe is loved for her candid presenting skills and her witty banter. 

But one thing the viewers of the BBC One show can’t stop talking about is the star’s red rose tattoo on her arm. 

The mum-of-two regularly flashes the inking when presenting the show, leading people to guess the meaning behind the beautiful art.

However, there is a heartbreaking history behind Zoe’s tattoo. 

Earlier in 2017, the radio and TV presenter’s boyfriend Billy Yates tragically died. 

In June, Zoe returned to work at Radio 2, and was pictured revealing a new tattoo of a rose on her arm. 

And the tattoo appears to be a tribute to the late cameraman.

While Zoe has never confirmed this, Billy had an identical tattoo on his upper shoulder. 

The tragic news broke on May 4 that Billy had been found dead in his home in Putney. 

Following the funeral, Zoe shared a picture of her partner on Instagram with the caption: “Goodnight my beautiful boy. I’ll be loving you always.” 

Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two continues on weekday evenings on BBC One.
