Speculation about a possible romance has been swirling for weeks, gaining traction as even ex-contestant Amanda Abbington described them as a “beautiful couple.”
Confirming Speculations: Four On-screen Moments
Recent developments on the show may have added fuel to the romantic rumors. During a live performance on Saturday, November 11, Vito, 31, couldn’t contain his excitement and affection for his dance partner, Ellie, 22.
Their rumba to Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors was not only a dance spectacle but also featured Vito kissing Ellie three times immediately after their performance.
The first kiss, a peck on the cheek, was swiftly followed by a warm hug.
Subsequently, as the judges provided their feedback, Vito planted another kiss on Ellie’s cheek.
The culmination came as they scored an impressive 35 out of 40 points, with Vito wrapping his arms around Ellie and sealing their dance triumph with a fourth smooch.
