BBC Strictly star Ellie Leach stressed about show as she shares side effects

Strictly Come Dancing sensation, Ellie Leach, has taken to social media to share a personal battle that has been affecting her confidence.

In a candid post, she opened up about her struggle with her skin condition and the impact it once had on her self-esteem. In her heartfelt message to fans on Instagram, Ellie emphasized that she wanted everyone to know they are "not on their own" if they are dealing with similar skin issues.

She posted a makeup-free selfie and expressed her frustration, saying: "Good morning everyone my skin is seriously hating on me right now!!! I think it's a mixture of things, sweating every day dancing, wearing more makeup than usual, weather change, all that jazz!!!! But I'm trying my best to just embrace it!"

Ellie went on to share how she used to feel embarrassed about her skin and suffered from anxiety: "I used to be so embarrassed about my skin when I was younger, I would always get so anxious to go anywhere because I felt so awful about it but I'm slowly starting to realise that it's NORMAL!!!!!! and everyone's skin is different. So if you're feeling the same as me at the minute then you're not on your own!"

Ellie's powerful message was a departure from the excitement surrounding her recent Argentine Tango performance on the show, which left judges and viewers in awe and earned the duo an impressive 38 points. Ellie, at 22 years old, and Vito, the 31-year-old Italian dance professional, have consistently dazzled on the dance floor and have become fan favourites to win the competition.

The chemistry between Ellie and Vito has fuelled romance rumours since their partnership in September, with fans eagerly dissecting their social media posts for clues about their relationship status.

Last week Vito affectionately kissed Ellie on the cheeks after their performance and the pair also shared a series of cosy and loved-up looking snaps with their fans.

Speaking about her close bond with Vito, Ellie shared: "Every day we have so much fun and I go home and I’m like, 'Oh my cheeks!' We’re just having such a good time. It’s a roller coaster, but everything is just amazing. Everything is 100% heightened… Every single day he says to me, ‘I believe in you… You can do this… I know you can… Just believe in yourself.’ That’s probably the biggest thing he’s taught me, aside from dancing. He’s like, ' I believe in you and you just need to believe in yourself.'"
