Ellie Leach and Vito Coppola suffered a blunder while performing a daring showdance during the Strictly 2023 final this evening. Viewers were left gutted for the former Coronation Street actress, as her professional dance partner rushed to comfort her.
The couple, who have caused a stir with their chemistry this series, took on a risky lift for the finale of their routine, in which Ellie sadly stumbled while trying to balance on Vito’s shoulders. Fans caught Ellie holding back tears while apologising to her partner for the mistake when the dance ended.
Vito responded by covering Ellie in kisses and asking if she was ok, before making their way over to the judges. It wasn’t long before fans inundated the couple with support.
One fan wrote on X, formerly Twitter: “My heart is breaking at for Ellie & how Vito is making sure she’s ok. Why does #Strictly make so so emotional every b****y week.”(sic)
Another BBC viewer shared a tearful GIF before adding: “Ellie apologising to Vito for the lift going wrong has me like #StrictlyFinal #StrictlyComeDancing #Strictly.” A third person gushed: “Nooo, the way that Vito just held Ellie’s face when the dance ended and kept asking if she was okay, I CANTTTTTTTT, I WANT A VITO!!!!”
