The EastEnders star, who plays Frankie Lewis on the popular soap, is partnered with professional dancer Giovanni Pernice.
In week four, she danced the cha-cha-cha to “Raspberry Beret” by Prince.
Dyer was later seen in the live audience applauding Ayling-Ellis’s fellow contestant, Tillie Ramsay.
“To be the first deaf contestant on Strictly Come Dancing is sooooo exciting.. and a little bit scary,” Ayling-Ellis has said of her taking part in the show.
“It is the hardest secret I have ever had to keep so it feels amazing to finally have this out in the open! I hope I will do the deaf community proud and break down more barriers.
“But I am also very excited to learn an incredible new skill and even better I get to learn whilst wearing beautiful dresses made especially for me!”
Strictly Come Dancing continues each weekend on BBC One.
