After their routine on the weekend, the pair were told by the judges they were giving off final vibes, however, Vito confessed he doesn’t want Ellie to think about the final too much.

He added: “We want to leave and enjoy every single week. Do baby steps, small and solid and if it comes, it comes. But, we are very happy with what we are doing.

“We are having our journey, like a rollercoaster. It’s amazing, I cannot put it into words how beautiful this journey is together.”

Leaning over to give Ellie a huge kiss on the cheek, she beamed as he continued: “To have met this beautiful person, it’s amazing!’

It wasn’t long before viewers watching were sent into a frenzy at Vito’s sweet gesture as there have been rumours of a backstage romance.

Taking to Twitter, @pantskate commented: “Vito just kissed Ellie live on the one show.”

@Bathb**ch added: “LOVE Ellie and Vito. Such a natural, unaffected couple, no agenda, no back story rubbish, just a lovely, cheerful, bubbly couple! Vito is doubly cute, such a sweetheart.”

With @TashaShaw10 tweeting: “Love these two. [sic]. They are my winners.”

This Saturday, Vito and Ellie will be performing a Rumba, which is known as one of the most challenging dances on the show.

Speaking about their upcoming performance, the former Coronation Street star confessed: “I’m not going to lie, the Rumba scares me!

“I think because it’s the slowest of the dances and you really have to exaggerate very single movement, like there’s nowhere to hide at all.”

Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday on BBC One from 6.05pm.
