Ellie Leach clears up romance rumours with Vito Coppola

Ellie Leach has set the record straight following romance rumours with her Strictly co-stars Vito Coppola and Bobby Brazier.

The Coronation Street star was crowned the champion of the 2023 series, along with Vito last December. It’s fair to say, the pair had plenty of tongues wagging, as their incredible chemistry on the dance floor sparked rumours they were an item.

And then when the Strictly tour kicked off earlier this year, more rumours swirled that she and co-star Bobby were dating. They were spotted out on dinner dates together, and reportedly Ellie and Bobby shared a secret snog.

But now, Ellie has spoken out and insisted she and Vito are just good friends.

A source apparently told The Sun in January: “Bobby and Ellie are the talk of the tour. Their friendship has grown and grown, and they’ve been spending nearly all their free time together before and after performances.

“They’ve been having their meals together, and flirting increasingly openly. The chat on tour is they may have enjoyed a cheeky snog, and will go public with their romance any week now.”
