Strictly fans split over Ellie and Vito romance as some beg ‘leave them be’

Strictly Come Dancing stars Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola have continued to keep fans on their toes as they addressed the ever-growing rumours surrounding their relationship.

After months of gracing viewers with their dance moves, the talented duo were crowned winners of the popular BBC programme. But as well as their impressive skills, fans have continued to speculate whether Ellie and Vito are actually an item.

The couple seemed to set tongues wagging again when they appeared on ITV's This Morning this week to discuss the situation. This Morning presenter Josie Gibson said: "Guys I've got to ask because the chemistry between you is magic alright.

"We've seen you on that dance floor and it was so beautiful to watch. Is there any romance between you guys? Is the rumours true or not?

Ellie replied: "Honestly, we've just been having the most amazing time dancing and we've built a really strong bond and a friendship that will last forever. Vito then chimed: "I wanted to say the word, I love the word.

"We had a beautiful bond you know. A good bond you know."

Vito also mentioned that he connected with Ellie straight away. But when presenter Craig Doyle chimed in and said he could spot that there was a romantic connection, both Ellie and Vito said "no".

After Ellie shared the short clip on her Instagram, fans were left divided on whether they are officially a couple or not. Heading straight to the comment section, one fan said: "It wasn’t really a no or a yes – sneaky! I still say, watch this space!"

Another fan wrote: "I might be wrong, but I don’t think they are romantically involved at all." A third said: "They are 100% together!!! You can tell just by the way they look at each other! No way is that platonic."

Meanwhile another said: "If they aren't, they absolutely NEED to be together!!!!" While another chimed: "Why is everybody forcing them to say they’re in a romantic relationship? Leave them be."

Ellie appeared to spark rumours again when she shared a special message to Vito on Instagram. Parts of the message read: "To the most wonderful partner I could have ever asked for. Words cannot describe how much love and admiration I have for you.

"When we first met I had an immediate calming feeling with you, considering how high energy you are I don’t know how this was possible but it was I immediately felt safe with you and I was so excited to see how our journey would end up."
