It comes after their ex-Strictly co-star Amanda Abbington, 51, first set tongues wagging by calling them the “most beautiful couple” on social media while saying she was “so proud” of their performance. Leach, who split from boyfriend of five years, Reagan Pettman, in May after he cheated on her, descried her latest dance with Coppola as a “magical night” as viewers continue to comment on their chemistry.

Speaking about their bond, Elli said: “Vito has taught me so much already. He tells me, ‘It’s a competition with yourself. If you’re tired, fight it, if you’re stressed, fight it.’ I also don’t praise myself enough, I just focus on the wrong. But then he’ll say to me, ‘Yeah, but you just did that…’”
