    Strictly Come Dancing star Vito Coppola fuelled romance rumours with co-star Ellie Leach when he affectionately called her "my baby".

    The dynamic duo has mesmerised audiences in the BBC ballroom, showcasing undeniable chemistry and seamless dance routines. Gossip is rife about the possibility of a romantic link between 22-year-old Ellie and 31-year-old Vito, fueled by their palpable rapport during performances.

    Recently, Vito took to Instagram to praise Corrie star Ellie's dedication, accompanying his tribute with a monochrome snapshot post-rehearsal, exclaiming: "Just finished another day of rehearsals!!! Well done to my baby Ellie Leach."

    This public display of affection follows shortly after the pair's charming appearance on The One Show, where they sat with hosts Ronan Keating and Lauren Laverne, gearing up for their upcoming rumba performance. The Coronation Street actress lit up as Vito complimented her on her consistent hard work.

    In a tender gesture, Vito cradled Ellie's arm and encircled her waist, fondly remarking, "To have met this beautiful," before tenderly pecking her on the cheek. Ellie's radiant smile was unmistakable as Vito drew her close, prompting Lauren to exclaim admiringly: "You two!"

    Following Ellie's upload of a spirited dance moment, she expressed her heartfelt gratitude in the caption: "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 Abbington, their ex-colleague, may have inadvertently hinted at more than just on-stage chemistry between the two.

    Amanda, previously competing on the show, commented warmly on the pair's connection, declaring: "You are the most beautiful couple," accompanied by a slew of heart emojis. The speculation intensified during the fifth week when, after a fiery Paso doble to Faithless' hit Insomnia, Vito affectionately caressed Ellie's face and pulled her into not one, but two kisses.

    The two were spotted leaving rehearsals together on Tuesday (November 7) after soaring to the top of the leaderboard last week. The duo looked happier than ever as they headed home and appeared to be in great spirits as she was pictured giggling in hysterics with Vito.

    Ellie and Vito achieved a near-perfect score of 39 as they performed the American Smooth to Robbie Williams hit Ain't That Kick In the Head on Saturday. Following their performance, judge Craig Revel Horwood noted that Ellie had gone from “strength to strength” in the show before giving out a score of nine, whilst Motsi Mabuse predicted the routine could send them into the final.
