Ellie Leach performs the samba with Vito Coppola

Strictly fans have been left gobsmacked after listening to a cheeky comment made by Vito Coppola during the recent Saturday live show.

The Italian dancer, 31, is paired with Coronation Street star Ellie Leach and the couple have so far dazzled the judges with their routines.

The soap star was the first celebrity to take to the dance floor for Week Four and danced to Barry Manilow’s soundtrack Copacabana.

Many BBC fans were left flustered by his words and couldn’t help but react to the Instagram video.

One person in the comments section said: “Love how Vito always calls Ellie baby.”

A second commented: “@vitocoppola come on baby,” with a wink face emoji.

A third chimed in: “More shirtless Vito, please – come on baby.”

However, despite mild criticism from the judges, the pair still went on to score 28 points.

Ellie fought back tears as she was speaking to Claudia Winkleman after her performance, saying to her partner Vito Coppola: “I feel like I let you down.”

“No, you haven’t let anybody down,” Claudia encouraged her.

Fans were quick to slam the Strictly judges for their criticism and give their support to Ellie.

One person commented: “I’m sorry but how did Ellie Leach not get a total of 30 at least for that dance? She did an incredible job there. #Strictly.”

A second penned: “Ellie and Vito were underscored I think their Samba is great and loved the theming. An 8 from me #strictly.”

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One on Saturdays at 6.30pm.
