Strictlys Vito and Ellie continue to fuel romance rumours in cosy This Morning appearance

Strictly Come Dancing 's Vito Coppola and Coronation Street 's Ellie Leach have continued to fuel rumours of a romance after they were seen looking very 'cosy' during an appearance on This Morning.

The pair, who are partnered on the show together this year, certainly looked very comfortable in each other's company as Vito, 31, wrapped a close arm around 22 year old Ellie's shoulder on the This Morning sofa – even appearing to give her arm a comforting stroke.

Fans were quick to notice, as they took to X – formerly known as Twitter – to comment on the pair's obvious chemistry.

One said: "They look very cosy [eye emoji] #thismorning," whilst a second wrote: "Why are they cuddling on the sofa? Do they get told to do that? #thismorning #strictly."

Ellie and Vito couldn't stop laughing with each other, with some smouldering eye contact when the other person was talking.

Speaking to hosts Craig Doyle and Rochelle Humes, they said they were having 'so much fun' working together on the show.

They each dished heaps of praise on the other, as Ellie said to Vito: "There's credit to you because you're a great teacher," before he said: "You're a great student," as she trilled: "Aww, thanks."

Rochelle clearly noticed the chemistry between them, as she said: "Look at them, it's a love in," whilst Craig chimed in "oh hello".

The pair did nothing to dispel the statements as they laughed along, whilst Vito never relaxed his posture, staying close to Ellie's side during their appearance.

Rumours of a romance between the pair have been swirling for weeks now, and on Sunday, 8 October, they posed happily together on the red carpet at the Pride of Britain awards.

At the awards, Ellie looked stunning in a red ruffled one-shoulder gown, whilst Vito coordinated her look perfectly in a black suit.

The pair were seen deep in conversation as they left an after party together, with Ellie linking her arm through Vito's.

They exited in the same car, and Vito had Ellie in stitches as he made a love heart gesture with his hands.

It looks like Ellie is moving on from her split from her ex-boyfriend dancer Reagan Pettman in May this year.

The pair had been together for five years and it's thought she joined the cast of Strictly to help heal her heartbreak.
