BBC Strictly’s Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola issue heartfelt joint statement ahead of final

Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola have thanked fans for their support as they continue preparing for the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing final.

The duo, who have been wowing audiences with their sizzling performances, are the current favourites to take home this year's Glitterball trophy.

Vito, 31, shared his heartfelt thanks to his 261,000 Instagram followers, saying: "We don't have words to describe our happiness and the words "thank you" are not enough to describe our gratitude to all of you beautiful people.

"We promise to you all that we will give as always our best, and we will give triple the energy, effort, commitment and everything we can do to express our gratitude.

"We are super grateful from our hearts. While writing this post the tears are in the eyes."

Vito also paid a sweet tribute to his dance partner, former Coronation Street star Ellie, 22, saying: "You are my warrior!

"You are really blossoming and now you can show to the entire world how amazing you are, but mostly you will prove to yourself that you are an amazing butterfly.

"So for this week just spread your wings and let's fly I promise to give you my best of the best for this next week, because I want it to be forever memorable in our memories."

Ellie was full of praise for her partner as she responded: "Couldn't do this without you partner, let's enjoy our final week dancing together."

It comes as the pair continue to spark romance rumours, with a friend of Ellie's claiming that the pair have been together since November.

The insider told the Daily Mirror: "Initially, they were friendly but as the weeks went on, their relationship changed. Ellie has made it clear to friends how happy she is with Vito.

"She's not the kind of person to fake something like that for votes. Putting on a showmance isn't her style what you see with her is what you get. When Ellie started Strictly, she was self-conscious and unsure. Now she's radiating confidence, which is lovely."

The pair's romance also appeared to be confirmed by their former Strictly co-star Amanda Abbington.

After Ellie posted a sweet photo of herself and Vito, Amanda commented with: "Stunning. So proud of the both of you. You are the most beautiful couple!"
