Ellie Leach cosies up to Vito Coppola for first TV appearance after Strictly romance confirmed

Strictly Come Dancing duo and rumoured couple Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola have been spotted putting on a very cosy display as they took a break from filming BBC One show.

Vito was seen with his arm around Ellie as she laid her head on his shoulder. Ellie and Vito, who have been topping the Strictly leaderboard, appeared on the BBC show on Tuesday 7 November to discuss their experience so far in the dance competition.

Ellie said: “Honestly, every weekend we go out and we just have so much fun and I always forget that it’s live and there’s an audience and I’m being judged I’m like ‘yeah I'm just enjoying myself’ so to top the leaderboard was incredible and something we never expect.”

Vito went on to say that they enjoy every single moment of the competition together and that he is so “proud” of his dance partner.

The 22 year old Coronation Street actress and 31 year old professional dancer have been rumoured to have been dating for weeks and former Strictly star Amanda Abbington, who recently quit the show, seemingly confirmed that the dance partners are now dating.

After Ellie posted a sweet picture of herself and Vito on the show, a comment Amanda left led fans to believe they're now an item.

Ellie wrote: "Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a magical night, we are so grateful for all of your support and we're soooo happy to be through to another week on that strictly dance floor," as friends and fans rushed to congratulate them in the comments.

Amanda wrote under the Instagram snap: "Stunning. So proud of the both of you. You are the most beautiful couple!"

The rumoured romance between the pair seemingly began last month when Ellie told Vito: "You are the most genuine and loving person ever, ever. You give the best cuddles and I'm excited to see the bonds that we build over the course of our Strictly journey."

And now body language expert Darren Stanton has revealed that the pair are almost certain to make it to the final as their connection continues to strengthen and grow.

Speaking on behalf of Betfair Roulette, Darren said: "Ellie and Vito have really pulled through and we’ve seen a huge amount of growth. They have a very strong connection, and it does continue to grow between them."
