Amanda Abbington, a former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, claims to have acknowledged a relationship that has developed between a partnership.
Sherlock actress Amanda, 51, quit the series last month for ‘personal reasons’ after competing for four weeks.
Despite the fact that she is no longer on the programme, she appears to have revealed some behind-the-scenes details about a couple who may have been more than just dance partners.
Ellie Leech, 22, of Coronation Street, uploaded a photo of herself with professional partner Vito Coppola, 31, on Monday.
This photograph was taken during one of their performances and shows them smiling and peering into each other’s eyes.
She captioned the post: ‘Thank you, thank you, thank you. What a magical night, we are so grateful for all of your support and we’re soooo happy to be through to another week on that Strictly dancefloor.’
Many words of support were sent to her from fans and fellow participants, including Amanda, who may have accidentally suggested the duo are more than pals.
‘Stunning. So proud of the both of you. You are the most beautiful couple!,’ she wrote alongside a series of love hearts.
Last week Vito, who is Italian, marked his first year of living in the UK with a heartfelt video in which he referred to the actress as ‘My Lulú’ and said he never expected to ‘feel so loved’.
In it, he addressed her and said: ‘I am so proud of you and you know how much I believe in you.’
‘Just keep working hard as you are already doing every day. You are doing great baby. Have a good rest tonight and make sure you eat properly. See you tomorrow for another beautiful day together.
‘Have a good rest tonight and make sure you eat properly. See you tomorrow for another beautiful day together.’
Despite their obvious affection, Ellie recently left Vito in pain after becoming overly enthusiastic during a live concert.
Ellie started jumping for pleasure a few weeks ago while the duo was being given 37 points for a paso doble and ended up falling on her partner’s toes.
She went on to say that they’d had a few’mishaps’ during training that week.
This isn’t the first time Ellie has exposed their’mishaps’ during training.
‘Vito kept saying you need to be strong and I think at some point I was a little too strong and broke a few of his toes,’ she confessed.
‘Three times!’ he clarified.
She then quipped back that because everything ‘comes in threes’, he had ‘asked for it’.
Strictly Come Dancing continues at 6:05pm on Saturday on BBC One.
