Throughout the series, speculation about their romantic involvement have persisted, fuelled by moments such as a shared snapshot of them napping together and a collection of affectionate pictures where they were cosily cuddled up.

On Saturday night the Coronation Street star beat Layton Williams and EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier to claim the top spot after three long months of training.

Ellie and Vito joined Josie Gibson and Craig Doyle on ITV's This Morning on Monday morning.

Josie asked the pair: "I've got to ask because the chemistry between you is magic. We've seen you on that dancefloor and it was so beautiful to watch. Is there any romance between you guys.

"Is the rumours true or not?"

Ellie laughed and replied: "Honestly, we've just been having the most amazing time dancing and we've built a really strong bond and a friendship that will last forever."

Vito also echoed: "We have a really beautiful bond, a good bond. When you see a person and you connect with a person straight away."

Craig appeared to read between the lines and said: "There's 100 per cent romance, 100 per cent…I can see it."
