Exclusive: Ellie Leach’s intimate victory celebration revealed as Partner Vito Coppola craves indulgence post-finale



Ellie Leach, the youngest winner in the history of Strictly Come Dancing, spilled the beans on her post-win celebrations, and it turns out, it was a seriously chilled-out affair! The former Coronation Street star, just 22, snagged the trophy alongside her rumored beau and dance partner, Vito Coppola, 31. But instead of hitting the town in style, Ellie spilled that she lounged in bed the entire day after the finale, calling it the ultimate victory mode.

On This Morning, Ellie spilled the deets, sharing, “It still feels unreal. I spent yesterday in bed, just taking it all in, and then went out for a cozy family tea.” Can’t blame her for relishing that win in her PJs!

Vito, the Italian dance sensation, joked about his foodie instincts, admitting, “I wanted to eat my way through the day.” Ellie playfully pointed out that was just business as usual for him.

The show also featured Sam Thompson, who snagged the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here crown earlier. He was all about reliving his glory, labeling it as “the most amazing moment I have ever experienced.”

But let’s talk about that finale moment! Ellie and Vito had everyone gushing when they were caught sharing a sweet moment right after their win, whispers and all. Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman announced their triumph, and Ellie couldn’t hold back her tears of joy. She murmured to Vito, “This is for you,” and he responded with the sweetest words, calling her the essence of Strictly, the shining diamond. Cue the waterworks!

In an emotional tribute to Vito, Ellie poured her heart out, saying, “This win, it’s beyond words. Dancing with Vito has been life-changing, and he’s been an incredible teacher. Thanks to everyone who voted for us!”

Vito wasn’t short on gratitude either, praising Ellie for her growth and dedication. Their chemistry on the dance floor was undeniable, fueling rumors about their off-stage relationship. When their names were called out, their families were in tears, and Ellie was floored, seeing Vito in tears for the first time ever.

They clinched that Glitterball trophy, confetti raining down as they were hoisted onto their competitors’ shoulders. Their dance journey from the Pasa Doble to the show dance and the American Smooth had captivated everyone, sealing their victory in style.
