Ellie Leach and Vito couldn’t look happier as they cosy up after ‘relationship is confirmed’ by Strictly co-starNovember 7, 2023
Strictly stars Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola have been pictured together for the first time since their rumoured relationship was confirmed.
The pair put on a cosy display as they left their Strictly Come Dancing rehearsal in London following a gruelling nine-hour workday.
The 22 year old Coronation Street actress and 31 year old professional dancer impressed judges over the weekend with their stunning ballroom dance, landing them at the top of the leaderboard and ever closer to the final.
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.
Her co-star Zara McDermott posted her congratulations below, writing: "So proud of you this week, I watched you with the biggest smile on my face ever, fave look of the series too!!! Just beautiful xxxx."
Sally Ann Matthews – who plays Jenny on Coronation Street – also sent her congratulations, sharing: "Squish, squish, squeeze, squish repeat. You two deserve every squish that I'm not known for giving. Talent shines through and hard graft is rewarded @vitocoppola x."
But it was Amanda's comment that got everyone talking. She wrote under the Instagram snap: "Stunning. So proud of the both of you. You are the most beautiful couple!" and hundreds of people liked her comment.
Just last week, Vito shared a cute message to 'his Lulu,' expressing appreciation for her.
He said: "Just THANK YOU. Sorry for repeating the same thing more times but this is the only way I have to show you all my gratitude and How thankful I am.
"One year ago when I moved here to the UK, I couldn't imagine that I would have felt so loved.
"Thank you thank you thank you very much. And to you, my Lulu… I am so proud of you, and you know How much I believe in you so just keep going and keep working hard as you are already doing every day.
"You are doing great, baby. Have a good rest tonight and make sure you eat properly. See you tomorrow for another beautiful day together."
Ellie responded to the post with multiple "love you" comments and a bunch of heart emojis."
