Strictly Come Dancing star Vito Coppola has seemingly confirmed his 'romance' with partner Ellie Leach.

The Italian professional dancer, 31, and the Coronation Street star, 22, have ignited relationship rumours in recent days - and the former’s latest Instagram post has added more fuel to the fire.

Let’s face it - would it be a Strictly season without two people falling head over heels for each other?

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding this year's season and things don't seem to be dying down anytime soon - thanks to Vito and Ellie.

It all started when Sherlock star Amanda Abbington seemingly 'confirmed' that fellow contestants Ellie and Vito Coppola were now dating.

The pair achieved a near-perfect score of an impressive 39 with their dazzling performance of the American Smooth to Robbie Williams' smash-hit 'Ain't That Kick In the Head' over the weekend (4 November).

On Monday (6 November), the dancing duo took to Instagram to share a joint message to their fans, accompanied by a photo of them gracing the ballroom after they topped the leaderboard for a second time and made it through to this week’s show.

The caption read: "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 dancefloor."

Amanda, who was confirmed to have left the show last month (23 October) for 'personal reasons', also offered her praise but seemed to have confirmed that Ellie and Vito were more than just dance partners.

"Stunning," she penned. "So proud of the both of you."

Accompanied with a series of red heart emojis, the 51-year-old added: "You are the most beautiful couple!"

And on Wednesday (8 November), Vito sparked further speculation when he posted an update after spending the day rehearsing with Ellie.

He captioned the black and white selfie with a congratulatory message and sweet nickname: “Just finished another day of rehearsal.

"Well done to my baby Ellie Leach.”

Ellie split from her boyfriend of five years back in May after being cheated on - which she said had impacted her self-esteem.

In October, she told The Mirror: “Being cheated on was upsetting, but now's the perfect time to put my all into Strictly and give that 500 per cent.”

Tyla has reached out to Vito and Ellie's representatives for comment.
