BBC Strictly Come Dancing’s Ellie Leach finally address Vito romance rumours: ‘He is wild’

Strictly Come Dancing star Ellie Leach has finally addressed rumours she is dating her professional dance partner Vito Coppola.

The pair have had viewers transfixed with their sizzling routines on a Saturday night and the Italian dancer has already met Ellie's parents.

The former Coronation Street star has had the dancer round for dinner and Vito is a big fan of gravy.

Speaking about their evenings together, she dished: "My mum cooked a beef stew — just an ordinary beef stew, nothing special I thought, but he loved it, so every time he comes for tea, he asks 'will there be gravy?'"

As their partnership on and off the dance floor has gotten stronger, Ellie has credited Vito with helping her to find her confidence.

She told the Daily Mail : "Vito is wild – I'd never done anything like this before, but he's such a great teacher and great human that he gives me the confidence.

"Vito has encouraged me to come out of my comfort zone."

As the pair, who are the favourites to win this year, continue to hit headlines over their rumoured romance, Ellie has addressed speculation but refused to confirm if the rumours are true.

She coyly commented: "There is always speculation about the couples on Strictly. But honestly we are just so busy dancing."

Tonight, Ellie and Vito will be performing the Quickstep to Belle from Beauty And The Beast for Musicals Week.

Addressing odds they will take the Glitterball Trophy, Ellie told It Takes Two host Janette Manrara they aren't looking beyond their Quickstep.

Janette asked: "Top of the leaderboard, fourth time now guys, this is amazing! Do you think that the public perception of you being a dark horse has led you to be favourites? What do we think?"

"Honestly, I don't know because we are always really every week focussed on the dance and we never ever, ever speak about the next week before the end of this week for example in this case," Vito replied.

Ellie added: "Yeah, we really are grateful. And having that support just makes us wanna do better every week. So we just really focus on going from week to week."
